Actor-comedian Terry Crews has been tapped as this year’s host of the Television Critics Association Awards, TCA president Scott Pierce announced today.

The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” costar and new “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” host will emcee the 30th annual invite-only, untelevised gala that happens in the middle of the summer TCA panels and festivities. Awards will be presented in categories such as news and information; youth; drama; reality; and comedy, as the top TV critics in North America honor the best programs of the 2013-2014 season.

“This is a major milestone for our organization, and we wanted to go all out to make it one of the biggest and best awards yet,” said Pierce. “Terry Crews is a perfect host. His infectious personality is equal parts hilarious, bold, and down-to-earth. His work speaks for itself—from comedy and drama, to sports and reality television, Crews is a diverse talent who can truly do it all. We’re very pleased to have him on board for this landmark occasion.”

This year’s TCA Awards take place July 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
