BET’s The Game is back for another season of drama, love, comedy and new faces. HipHollywood caught up with the cast to talk about what fans can expect this season.
HipHollywood first broke the news that Tia Mowry would not be returning to the show, along with Pooch Hall. Hall will appear in the first episode, but does not have a recurring role on Season 6 … still, the show must go on.
Joining the cast this season is Lauren London and Jay Ellis. Lauren plays a former child star trying to discover herself. The actress tells HH that the crew welcomed her with open arms when she arrived on set. “It was like being the new girl in school, but everyone was welcoming and warm.”
Jay Ellis, a.k.a Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbrook, plays the new running back on the San Diego Sabers, and Ellis couldn’t be more pleased. “I feel like I won the lottery. Getting to walk in and play this guy week after week has been a really amazing thing,” Ellis explained.
As for some of your other favorite characters … “Tasha goes on a ride. It’s self discovery, it’s painful, it’s funny, sexy, it’s steamy, it’s a journey,” Wendy Raquel Robinson told HH about her character’s role on the show.
And Chardonnay, played by Brandy, is back and more fierce that ever as the wife of Jason Pitts. “Chardonnay is everything, free, sassy, loving this new life with Jason. She is adjusting to this new life of being a football players wife,” Brandy raved.
