Introducing Jay Ellis: 10 Things You Don’t Know About the Newest Player on “The Game”




On Tuesday night The Game fans will finally meet, Jay Ellis.

The Tulsa, OK native has been tapped to play Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbrook on the hit BET series, taking over Pooch Hall’s spot as the star player on the team.

HipHollywood sat down with Ellis regarding his much buzzed about role and also found out what fans can expect from season six.

“I play Blue and Lauren [London] plays Kiera Whitaker who is a former child star who took some time off from acting and is making her way back in. Her and Blue bump into each other draft night and there is a little bit of a spark and we basically spend the next 20 episodes or so finding out what is going to happen between those two.”

But before Ellis or London make their big debut, HipHollywood also found out 10 things about Ellis you may not know. Check it out!

The Game Season 6 premieres Tuesday, March 26th at 10/9c. Will you be watching?


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
