Terry Crews Signs With UTA After WME Battle

A month after exiting WME amid a sexual harassment battle, actor Terry Crews has signed with UTA for representation in all areas.

Crews, co-star of Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” left WME in early November after going public with his allegation that he was groped by WME partner Adam Venit at an industry party in February 2016. He subsequently filed a police report on the incident and is waging a lawsuit against Venit and WME.

“I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified,” the actor told ABC’s “Good Morning America” last month.

In addition to his acting, Crews is a popular TV host and pitchman. He served stints as host of the syndicated “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” Fox’s “World’s Funniest” and the Netflix unscripted series “Ultimate Beastmaster.” He has served as the face of Old Spice for the past eight years, and has an upcoming branded entertainment project with Microsoft for the upcoming Xbox game “Crackdown 3.”

On the film side Crews will be seen opposite Patton Oswalt and Danny Glover in the comedy “Sorry to Bother You,” set to bow at the Sundance Film Festival next month.

Crews will continue to be repped by 3 Arts Entertainment, Anderson Group Public Relations and Morris Yorn.
