The CW Star of the Week: Terry Crews
Where you can catch him: As Julius Rock on Everybody Hates Chris, Mondays at 8/7c
Why we heart him: Can you imagine anyone else playing Chris' tough but essentially warm-hearted father? We can't. Furthermore, the former NFL player has proven that there's life after football - and quite a fulfilling life at that. Not only is he a regular on a critically acclaimed TV series, he also is a parent (5 kids - phew!), a painter and has appeared in movies such as Training Day, Starsky & Hutch, The Benchwarmers and the November release Harsh Times with Christian Bale and Eva Longoria.
How did he land his current gig? He met Chris Rock on the set of The Longest Yard, and Chris chose Terry for the role.
