TV Insider Podcast: Terry Crews Previews ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ & the ‘AGT: The Champions’ Finale
Is there anyone like Terry Crews?
The former NFL player has been entertaining us for years and is currently juggling more than a few projects. First, there’s the sixth season of sitcom Brooklyn 99, thankfully saved by NBC when Fox canceled it last year, in which Crews plays the meticulous Sergeant Terry Jeffords. Second, he’s hosting America’s Got Talent: The Champions and it was just announced that he’ll be continuing in that role for this summer’s new season of AGT.
