Crews has performed as an action-movie hero and sitcom star, worked as a syndicated game show host, is a former NFL player, and best-selling author. Currently, he is the newest host of the well-known syndicated game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and stars as Sgt. Terry Jeffords on FOX’s Golden Globe award-winning comedy series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
