Terry Crews

Sgt. Terry Jeffords, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"

Terry Crews hosts both “America’s Got Talent” and its successful winter edition, “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.”

In addition, Crews has co-starred on NBC’s Golden Globe Award-winning comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” for the past six seasons.

Crews is an action-movie hero, sitcom star, advertising pitchman, playable video game character, high-end furniture designer and human rights activist. His most recent films, “Sorry to Bother You” and “Deadpool 2,” were released last summer and he was named one of Time magazine’s 2017 Persons of the Year as one of the “Silence Breakers,” speaking out against sexual harassment following the #MeToo movement.

Crews’ film roles include “White Chicks,” “Idiocracy,” “The Expendables” franchise and several Adam Sandler films, including “Sandy Wexler,” “Blended” and “The Longest Yard.”
 
A lifelong artist, Crews added furniture designer to his resume with the 2017 release of his capsule collection with Bernhardt Designs, which premiered at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York.
 
Crews got into gaming after building a PC from scratch with his son, Isaiah. After the Internet exploded with fans encouraging Crews to continue his computing journey, he got the attention of Microsoft, who created a playable character in their game “Crackdown 3.”

After several years in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, Crews turned his talents to the performing arts, where his talent, hard work, character and dedication has made him one of the most sought out and respected talents in the industry.

Crews dedicates his free time to keeping physically fit — both in mind and body while also working with several non-profit organizations, including Safe Horizon, Peace Over Violence and the Polaris Project. For his dedication in helping these organizations, he was awarded the UN Global Generation Award at the UN headquarters and continues to be honored by numerous organizations for his tireless advocacy in helping to combat sexual harassment and abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking.

He and his wife, Rebecca, have five children.
