Biography

Widely considered one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play in the National Football League, Terry Bradshaw went on to enjoy a prolific career as a commentator, actor, singer, commercial pitchman and motivational speaker. Picked first in the 1970 NFL draft, Bradshaw struggled to find his footing throughout his first two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Once he did, he proved to be a tenacious competitor and natural leader, helping win the Steelers four Super Bowl championships in the process. Bradshaw flirted with acting early on, and his boyish, homespun charm made him a natural for action-comedy efforts like the Burt Reynolds movies "Hooper" (1978) and "The Cannonball Run" (1981). With his record-setting NFL career behind him, the future hall of famer began his long-running second career as a sports broadcaster in 1984; first on "The NFL Today" (CBS, 1975- ) and then with "Fox NFL Sunday" (1994- ). A published author and motivational speaker, his books included It's Only a Game and Looking Deep. Continuing to act on occasion, later film credits included an appearance on the popular sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle" (Fox, 2000-06) and in the romantic-comedy "Failure to Launch" (2006). Frequently underestimated, particularly during his early days in football, Bradshaw's seemingly lowbrow good ole' boy persona belied a man of deep conviction and surprising depth.
