Terry Alan Crews (born July 30, 1968) is an American actor and retired football player who was a defensive end and linebacker in the National Football League.

Early life

Crews was born in Flint, Michiganmarker and attended Flint Academy.He earned an Art Excellence Scholarship to attend the Interlochen Center for the Artsmarker and then Western Michigan Universitymarker.

While completing his studies as an Art major, Crews was a key member of the WMU football team, where he earned all-conference honors as a defensive end. Crews was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams of the NFL in the 11th round of the 1991 NFL Draft. He carved out a career that lasted six seasons, including stints with the Rams, San Diego Chargers, the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles.


After retiring in 1998, Crews pursued an acting career. Terry sought to get into acting any way possible. He began working as a Montion Picture security and body guard for a long running Los Angeles based firm, CAST SECURITY Inc. It was this doorway that provided Terry with the opportunities to make contacts that would benefit him in the future. It was on the set of Next Friday that he was propositioned for a role in the follow up, "The Friday After Next". Terry really wanted to write screenplays and was constantly drafting new material while working long hours as a security guard. A stint as T-Money on Battle Dome (modeled on American Gladiators) followed. He played the beefcake "he-man" in movies such as White Chicks. He also played Damon in Friday After Next, featuring Ice Cube and Mike Epps. Terry has also done commercials with Nikemarker. He last starred in the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris (as Julius) on the CW, and his more modern movie appearances were alongside Adam Sandler in The Longest Yard and Click. Crews also appeared in another Adam Sandler production — The Benchwarmers with Rob Schneider and David Spade (as a person who was bullied by Gus Matthews, despite Terry's enormous size), as well as the long-delayed Mike Judge film Idiocracy, where he plays President Camacho.

In The Longest Yard, he stars with Chris Rock, but on Everybody Hates Chris, Crews stars as the father, Julius, of a young Chris Rock. Crews has a cameo appearance in blink-182's music video 'Down'. In the video he plays the part of a police officer in pursuit of a criminal. He also appeared in Denzel Washington's 2001 movie Training Day. He also had a cameo in Jamie Kennedy's Rollin' with Sagetas the security guard, except just like his role in The Benchwarmers, he acts like a coward after Bob Saget "cold-clocked decked him." He appears in Soul Plane as the bodyguard who tells Elvis Hunkee (Tom Arnold) about his daughters.

He frequently plays buffed-looking characters with a humorous softer side, such as singing along with 80's music or becoming engaged with soap operas. But more recently, he has been able to alternate with more serious projects such as his recent appearances in Harsh Times, Inland Empire and Street Kings.

Personal life

On July 29, 1989, Crews married his wife Rebecca, just one day before his 21st birthday. Terry and Rebecca have four daughters. In June 2005, their fifth child and first son was born.
