tinashe reminds me of aaliyah so much but not in an annoying, jocking way like other “whisper singers” or people who dress like her or always rock a side part. like i genuinely like her and enjoy her music
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine”s Terry Crews dishes on the cop show-sitcom, his NFL past and those WTF Old Spice ads.
How did Brooklyn Nine-Nine come about?
I actually had two other pilots coming at me real hard. We had some decisions to make. [Executive producers] Mike [Schur] and Dan [Goor] called me up and said, “Terry, we know you haven’t read a script yet, because we’re still working on it, but your character’s name is Terry. We hope you have a doppelganger, because whoever gets this part is going to be named Terry.” They were taking things out of my life. I told them how I enjoyed driving a minivan, that it was the perfect car for a family — they put that in the show. The fact that I was scared to get hurt when I was in the NFL because I was wondering how my kids were going to survive — they switched that around to the anxiety of police work. It was so cool; no one had ever done that. Brooklyn is the first show that gets me. What usually happens if you’re a big black dude is that you get big black jokes.
Love this man
