While the absence of Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry on BET’s The Game will be devastating, the network has moved on to two new stars. Congratulations to the gorgeous Lauren London and newbie Jay Ellis. While Lauren has been on the scene for a few years, only to take a break to give birth to a baby boy fathered by her former fiance’ Lil Wayne, this show is no doubt a game changer for newcomer Jay Ellis. Overnight, he is being blogged about and interviewed. Oh, how life can change in the blink of an eye. I know he is forever greatful to Salim and Mara Brok Akil (creators/producers of The Game).
The former ATL actress will play Kiera, who is a former child star who has a job on a popular sitcom. Jay, who had previous roles on “Hart of Dixie” and “NCIS,” will play Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbrook, a.k.a. Blue, a star running back from the Ivy League who rubs some of the Sabers the wrong way. And for season 6, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez, Barry Floyd and Brandy Norwood will all be back!
Congratulations Jay and Lauren, this may be interesting? Will you tune in?
