Terry Crews may be a muscle-bound funnyman onscreen, but offscreen, he’s actually prolific for dishing out life lessons and great personal insight. Crews is actually a fan of Star Wars and has just shared a LEGO TIE Fighter he built on IG. What’s interesting is, he also used the post to dish out a life lesson for whoever needed it.

Here’s what Crews posted:


ALL FINISHED! My @starwars @lego TIE/Ln Starfighter is complete! I had a blast creating this! LEGO teaches me a lot about life. I’ve learned that we human beings are like legos— just because you are in pieces, does that mean you are broken? NO. You sometimes just have to disassemble and put all the parts back right again— and that takes time, perseverance, and a ton of patience. But if you never quit, you will achieve your goal. Remember— YOU ARE NOT BROKEN, YOU ARE JUST NOT FINISHED. KEEP BUILDING!

If you didn’t already know, Crews himself has said that Star Wars has changed his life, and it was his love for the movie as a kid that got him to get into show business. He didn’t necessarily know he was going to be an actor, but he said that he wanted to be involved in movie-making somehow.

With all the future projects Disney is planning for Star Wars down the line, I could very well imagine Crews coming into the franchise at one point. I mean, if someone like Samuel L. Jackson could be Mace Windu, there’s probably a good role for Crews in one project or another. Heck, Bill Burr, who doesn’t care for Star Wars, is in The Mandalorian. Who does Terry Crews have to call to be in a galaxy far far away?

Catch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in theaters Dec. 20.
