Terry Crews’ Son Isaiah Stars In ‘Side Hustle’
Isaiah’s new show is called Side Hustle, and it recently premiered on Nickelodeon. Isaiah plays a character called Munchy, who teams up with his friends to earn money to pay for damages to his dad’s boat.
Production started in September, after being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Isaiah told TV Insider he was “terrified” by the delay. “I thought I would never be able to act again and never come back from that,” he said. “I’m glad the network liked it so much they stuck with it.”
Isaiah also told the site he was inspired by his dad to start acting. “When I first saw my dad on White Chicks was when I knew,” he said. “I thought that job seemed so fun and wanted to do this with my life.”
The 15-year-old added that he’s been watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine for inspiration. He said watching his dad’s work has helped him with “comedic timing” and knowing “when to hold for laughs.”
Does Terry Support His Son’s Acting Career?
Isaiah said his dad and mom Rebecca were “supportive from the start” and “excited to see me follow in their footsteps.” Terry also gave his son some good advice about not getting a big head.
“If you get too cocky, you think you can do anything you want when you can’t,” Isaiah said of his father’s wisdom. “Mainly just stay humble and remember where you came from.”
Terry is also helping his son promote the show. They recently built a computer together in honor of the premiere and announced that they would be giving it away to one lucky fan. “I am so, so proud of my son Isaiah,” Terry said in the video announcing the project.
Side Hustle premiered this past weekend, and airs Saturday nights on Nickelodeon. You can check out the full premiere episode in the video above.
