Deadline reports that the title of the long-running syndicated game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? could soon sound even more like a dare, as Terry Crews is in final talks to host. Crews is already plenty busy with his role on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but apparently not so busy that he can’t make room for coaxing the answers to trivia questions out of Millionaire contestants—possibly by just reaching in and ripping them right out of their throats to save time. It’s also expected Crews could shave a few minutes off every episode by responding to their pansy-ass requests to “use a lifeline” by being Terry Crews. “You want to be a millionaire or what?” Crews would ask some stammering, soft-bodied loser as they slink back into the darkness. “Yeah, that’s what I thought.”
If he takes the job, Crews would succeed previous host Cedric The Entertainer, who recently announced he was stepping down by citing the show’s new, cheaper production base of Connecticut as a conflict with his packed schedule of Cedric-the-entertaining.
