Terry Crews is a giant hulk of a man and his muscular physique speaks volumes about his diet and exercise regimen. As an NFL member, Crews has the advantage of a big build that would lay flat a rhinoceros.
He appears in The Expendables with his AA shotgun. He also holds Sly Stallone, the Italian Stallion, in great esteem as a swell guy. Terry is positively bursting with joy.
"The thing about working with Sly and what I’d hoped would happen, is that he is the sequel master," Crews told DenOfGeek in an interview.
"Getting my first chance to be in a big action movie when I was doing the first Expendables, I just prayed to God it did well enough so we could do another, because that’s what he does, and then we had two and it did well and was a big hit worldwide."
And with the beginning of The Expendables 3, Terry is in peak form. Finally, the sequel has arrived in all its marvelous glory. Crews discussed the surrealistic vision that inspired the story.
There was a fundamental difference between the first part and the second. Terry admitted that nowadays everybody learnt their basics from movies.
"I was just so happy and Expendables 2 was actually the first sequel I ever did. I had done a lot of movies and there were rumours of White Chicks 2, or this and that, but when we got Expendables 2 I thought ‘Dude I finally got a sequel, here we go!’ and the world responded really well again," Terry continued.
"This is what Sly does and I will do them as much as I can, as long as I am still in them, if they invite me in I am good!"
The media had become a sort of surrogate mother. He also reasoned about action flicks that were normal life that had undergone a soup up version.
Terry appeared in White Chicks in a funny role. He is a versatile actor. As for the role of Mel Gibson in The Expendables 3, Crews was not against the controversial star and director.
The man was guilty in the eyes of the public for his race-related rants. Crews said that if you got as much exposure as Mel did, there had to be a few things that rubbed people the wrong way.
Crews said that Mel was a human being and therefore imperfect. He deserved a second chance at being his former clean self.
Besides, Gibson was contrite and had apologized to the Jewish community for the anti-Semitic remarks he had made once upon a time.
"My experience with Mel...he was a star. He is a star. He's definitely sorry. People have to be allowed a second chance," Terry Crews told Bet in an interview.
"The Expendables franchise...it's like the halfway house of Hollywood! You do anything wrong, you can get in Expendables."
Meanwhile, Crews will play a comedic role in Brooklyn Nine-Nine. According to the 46-year-old actor, the show was going to be even more hilarious this time around.
It was an exciting and stimulating piece of entertainment that would pique the appetite for laughter of almost anyone. And there were periods of improvisation on set too.
"We're just getting started. It's going to be funnier and better next year," Terry said.
Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher are also included in the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This comedy show has already won two Golden Globe awards.
"When we were doing the pilot, it felt like we had been together two years. It's lightning in a bottle. There were no obstacles to what we could do. We all hit right away, and that doesn't happen," Terry continued.
Terry Crews has elucidated so many things in the interview he sat down to give in a candid and frank manner. He is a fine actor and force of Nature alright.
Crews film, The Expendables 3, is in cinemas now while the comedy TV series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, will return to E4 for its second season in 2015.
