And as himself in the BET reality series The Family Crews. But playing as Daryl, the beefcake "he-man" known for his "Euro Training" and his catch phrase "Indeed" while flexing his chest in an episode of the tv series, My Wife and Kids really launched Terry Crews' career and he has since played mostly beefcake "he-man" roles in films and television.
