From the NFL to Old Spice to “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to movies. Who knew Terry Crews would go from a Los Angeles Rams 11th-round draft pick to major Hollywood star? Now the ex-Ram (and ex-Redskins player) is reportedly eyeing a gig as the new host of the syndicated daytime game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva reports:
“I hear Crews last week reached an agreement for the show, though the deal has not been finalized.”
If this project does work out for Crews (who would also remain a regular on ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’), he’ll succeed Cedric the Entertainer, who is leaving the production because he doesn’t want to commute to Connecticut, where the show is planning to move, Deadline.com reports. The 50-year-old comedian is also blaming his busy schedule.
As to Crews’s fans? They’re pumped for the deal to be finalized.
