Terry Crews Named New Host of WWTBAM

Terry Crews Named New Host of WWTBAM

Ex-NFL player and current actor on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine Terry Crews has been named the newest host of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

“Millionaire is such a beloved franchise and I can’t wait to get started as the new host. In addition to my film projects including Blended, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and now being a first time author, hosting has always been a dream of mine, and I couldn’t have asked for a greater opportunity,” Crews said in a press release.

The show’s 13th season takes place in a new location: Stamford, CT. The show’s current host, Cedric the Entertainer, cited the move as the motivating factor in leaving the show. “With the many television and film projects that I have going on which shoot and promote in various parts of the country, a production-base in Connecticut would make it quite difficult to maneuver the many moving parts on my plate,” Cedric said in a statement. “So, after much thought and some serious conversations with senior executives at the studio, I decided to let Disney-ABC know that, unfortunately, I’m not able to continue on as host.”

    Whoever made this decision is a genius! I never would’ve thought of him as a game show host, but I can easily see it.

    The new season starts in September, which is when he’ll be taking over the reigns.
