Terry Crews is taking over television, and no one deserves it more than The Ebony Falcon! He has proven to be a fantastic actor, dancer and TV personality, as well as a hilarious and upstanding gentleman, so it's exciting to hear that he is the new host for Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Well, as long as this doesn't affect filming Brooklyn Nine-Nine, because we love Sgt. Terry Jeffords!
It's OFFICIAL!!!! I'm making people RICH!!!!!... http://t.co/aiDh6pqmR6

Terry will begin hosting the daytime show in the fall, and I'm betting that if it is a big success, we'll see a special run during primetime (where it originally premiered in 1999 with host Regis Philbin). The daytime version was launched in 2002 with Meredith Vieira, and the hosting gig became available when Cedric the Entertainer recently announced that he would be leaving the show after one season.
Terry has a lot to celebrate right now. Besides co-starring in the Golden Globe-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine, his first book and memoir, Manhood: How to Be a Better Man-or Just Live with One, will be available on May 20. And if that's not enough, he also has three movies coming out this year - Blended with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore; reprising his role as Hale Caesar in The Expendables 3 with Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham; and Reach Me with Stallone and Kyra Sedgwick.
