Terry Crews Wants to be in Overwatch

Terry Crews Wants to be in Overwatch

We also want Terry Crews to be in Overwatch.

Terry Crews, of Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame, recently paid a visit to Blizzard headquarters, where he took the picture you'll see to the right. He also Tweeted the following:

"LOVED my visit with the geniuses at BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT today, and meeting the creators of one of my favorite games! OVERWATCH! LETS GO!"

The "Let's go!" comment at the end of course led to wild fan speculation, which was further fueled by a comment he posted today:

Fans are speculating that his comment suggests he may have already done some work with Blizzard, and he is just trying to generate hype. If so, that would be absolutely fantastic news!

If you're asking who "Doomfist" is, he is an off-screen character in the Overwatch universe. We see his gauntlet in the Numbani map and the very first Overwatch animated short, and we know that there have been at least three prior people to wield the gauntlet and the Doomfist name.

Blizzard has hinted at a playable Doomfist character in the past, and Crews would be a perfect fit for his voice.

If there is a caring god this will happen. Please let this happen

If they make terry crews a playable character, I will buy Overwatch. No, I don't want him to voice a character. I want to play as terry crews.

Blizzard? Pretty please? Make this a thing?

I can't imagine he'd stir the pot this much without having already talked with and basically confirmed it with Blizzard. Probably just generating hype. Not that that's a bad thing in this case. I'd probably become a Doomfist main just for this.

Of course....

This would be the ideal situation.

"Of Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame"? I'm pretty sure that is not why most people know who he is.

Dude is also a major proponent of the "PC Master Race", self-proclaimed even. His rig is sick.

I think he'd fit right in, he's got a larger than life physical presence and a very colourful personality. I echo the current sentiments: make it happen Blizz.

Geez, every tiny bit of Overwatch news is posted on this website. Are they paid to do so or something?

Anyway, maybe this would finally make me try Overwatch. Terry Crews is awesome and him as a playable character would also be awesome.

Discovering his youtube channel through that one video about him building his rig was one of the best things ever.

Gosh I love the guy, I'd actually look past the loot boxes and play the game again if he gets to be a character VA.

Well World of Warcraft did had commericals for Mr. T, Chuck Norris, and Ozzy Osbourne in-game:

Can't wait to see him in Odorwatch. He better say POWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!

Also, if true Doomfist MUST absolutely have a pectoral dance taunt mocapped by Crews himself.

Where would you think people know him from? Crews has been in a lot of things, but nothing really huge or career defining. Everybody Hates Chris, The Expendables, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Boondocks - all good, but nothing that jumps out as his star moment. At least B99 is still on the air.

This is when I noticed people actually knew his name, though Im sure many people before this knew him as a "oh that guy from that one movie". One of those actors you recognize but often cannot remember their name or specific role maybe.

I did not even know he was in that show, nor do I ever hear anyone even talk about it.

It'd be a great way to start off 2017.

He started as a football player.

RaikuFA:

He started as a football player.

And Seth MacFarland started on Cartoon Network. But that wasnt what he became famous for.

I dont think people outside of hardcore sports fans know individual athletes unless they are super stars, which usually is because they are either super good, or in a ton of commercials.

Agreed to this, I first knew about him in Everybody Hates Chris but the breakthrough was certainly the old spice stuff.

More on topic though, I guess we are going to get a lot of Terry Crews porn then.

Terry Crews of White Chicks fame.

Why..

I will buy Overwatch if this happens just to play as Terry Crews. Make it happen Blizzard. I know you want my money!

josemlopes:

... I still want it.

Blackwatch Reyes already looks like Terry.

They'd be crazy not to have Crews play Doomfist.

Good. God. Yes. This NEEDS to happen.
