Terry Crews Honored With Hollywood Star

Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) was honored with a star in Hollywood on his birthday, July 30. 

The former NFL linebacker turned actor is celebrating his 53rd birthday the same day. America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel, and Tichina Arnold joined Crews during the ceremony. 

He is the 2,699th star to be added since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961. 

Crews has a colorful career. After high school, he was given a scholarship to Interlochen Center for Arts in Michigan. However, Crews started his legacy as an athlete. He played 36 games with the Rams, San Diego Chargers, and a Washington football team between 1991 to 1995. 

The former NFL linebacker broke new ground in acting as a cast member of the early 2000s competition Series Battle Dome. Crews grew his acting chops in supporting roles with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Science Fiction Action movie, The 6th Day. Following a very successful path, Crews delivered iconic performances and made his mark in Hollywood. His role as Julius Rock on Everybody Hates Chris (2005-2009) brought Crews wider public recognition.

He is also recognized for his comedic build in Friday After Next, Click, Longest Yard, and White Chicks. The newly honored actor has over 91 credits under his belt, with three of them holding the title of being a lead producer. This star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been well earned.

Lizzo has been expressing her interest in Marvel’s Chris Evans for some time now. In her latest social media post, the Grammy award-winning singer suggested that both of them should star in the recently announced remake of The Bodyguard.

After the news broke on Monday that the 1992 classic starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner was getting the remake treatment, Lizzo posted a video on TikTok.

In the published video, the Rumors singer reacts to the announcement of the new Bodyguard movie using the “What are we talking about?” format. She then shows another tweet that suggests she and Evans should co-star in the upcoming Warner Bros. remake.

Lizzo and Evan’s back-and-forth started earlier this year when the singer shared with her followers that she’d slid into Captain America’s DMs while drunk. Evans later responded on Twitter, “no shame in a drunk DM.” Both have been having what seems like a great friendship since then.

What do you think, would they be good leads for the new Bodyguard movie?

A reimagining of the iconic Whitney Houston film The Bodyguard is underway at Warner Bros.

As reported by Variety, the remake will be inspired by the 1992 classic, which starred Houston and Kevin Costner. The original film grossed over $400 million at the worldwide box office. In addition, it has the bestselling movie soundtrack that features several award-winning songs.

Zendaya has been booked and busy these last few years. But acting is not all she aspires to do. In her recent cover story for British Vogue, the 25-year-old Dune star shared she also wants to direct.

When asked if she plans to tell her future children about the current Black American experience she said, “I don’t know what I’m going to tell them. Hopefully, they’ll be able to look at what I’ve done and my body of work and see it.”

Zendaya strongly believes that art is a “huge catalyst for change”. When it comes to her future work, she plans to take a stand, pledging that, “If I ever do become a filmmaker, I know that the leads of my films will always be black women. I gotta hurry up and figure out how to f**king become a director, man. I’m trying, I’m learning every day, I really am. There’s so much I want to do.”

Zendaya first rose to fame as a teenage spy on her Disney series KC Undercover. She went on to star in box office hits, including Spider-Man: Homecoming. The actress also recently won her first Emmy for her role in HBO’s Euphoria. Her latest project Dune will drop in October.
