Terry Crews fans, you’ll want to check this one out.
The NFL player turned actor has taken on a number of memorable roles of the years, even if he hasn’t quite reached the level of Hollywood leading man. “I would much rather have a tiny role in an awesome movie, than to be the head guy in something that’s just ehhh,” Crews says in a fun new video delivered by GQ, where he discusses the 10 roles that have helped form his career.
He talks about his parts in Training Day, The Expendables, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among others, providing some insightful factoids along the way. We learn that The Expendables, for example, was close to having a straight-to-home entertainment release and that he originally had a very small part in it, until he changed his attitude and Stallone wrote him a pivotal scene. He also thought that Idiocracy would be a massive hit and would be his big breakout, until it proved to be a huge flop, which he says may have something to do with the amount of companies being featured in a negative light.
Crews is a downright likeable guy, and his positive, go get ’em’ attitude certainly comes across here. Enjoy.
