Weirdest job: "The first thing I ever auditioned for was a game show called Battledome. They put me in a cage and I had to fight three different contestants and send them to the hospital."

Terry Crews is about to get even busier. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host just added another game show to his resume.

Fox announced Tuesday that the TV personality will host its new unscripted comedy series World's Funniest Fails. The one-hour project, ordered to series earlier in December, takes its cues from YouTube channel FailArmy — home to some of the Internet's best "epic fails."

“Terry Crews is already a cherished member of the Fox family," said Fox Broadcasting Company Entertainment president David Madden. "He’s larger than life, quick on his feet and crammed with charisma. We can’t wait to see him interact with the funniest, most spectacular fails on the planet.”

World's Funniest Fails will host a panel of celebrities and comedians each week to analyze and judge the episode's chosen videos. “This show is going to be a blast,” said Crews. “Like everyone else, I find myself watching these viral videos with my kids and cracking up at the hysterical fails from around globe, which is why I'm so excited to host World's Funniest Fails."

The Friday series bows Jan. 16 at 8 p.m., joining American Idol and MasterChef Junior as part of Fox's midseason unscripted slate.
