Terry Crews Lands Role On HBO Series 'The Newsroom'

Terry Crews has joined the cast of the new Aaron Sorkin HBO drama The Newsroom.

According to reports, the Everybody Hates Chris actor has been cast in a recurring role as a “bodyguard and unofficial life coach,” for  Jeff Daniels’ character.

The Newsroom has just been renewed for a second season, but whether Crews will return to the show next year is unknown.

In the series, Daniels stars as news anchor Will McAvoy, who takes a forced-upon leave of absence after a public rant against the USA during a political debate. When he returns, he learns that most of his staff has quit and that his boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston) has hired his ex-girlfriend MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) as the new executive producer. The two, Will and Mackenzie immediately clash when she pictures a new kind of news show, where entertainment and ratings are irrelevant and facts are of primary importance.

Terry Crews may be best known for his role on the UPN/CW sitcom Everybody Hates Chris and his part on sit-com Are We There Yet?
