Former NFL player turned Expendables II star/"the other" Old Spice guy, Terry Crews, has been cast in Aaron Sorkin's new HBO series The Newsroom, Vulture is reporting. He will portray a bodyguard and unofficial life coach for Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy, and he's set to appear in five episodes beginning on July 29th. And, considering the show was just renewed for a second season, the door is open for Crews to return to the series next year.

Judging by this, we think it's safe to say Will McAvoy is in for some very inspiring advice.
