After the news broke of Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall leaving BET’s The Game, it’s now being reported that not only are the producers continuing the series, but they plan on adding new characters in place of the originals. Zap2It found information on casting calls for these new roles.
With Tia Mowry leaving the show, producers are looking for a new female actress to join the cast in the regular role of Kiera, a 20-year-old former child star who has been in the spotlight since she was five years old and starring on a “Cosby” style sitcom. According to the casting call, she’s bright and charming, but struggling into transitioning into a grown-up career.
Kiera isn’t the only newbie in town! Another series regular will be hired to play Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbook – a #1, Ivy League draft pick running back who breaks every “dumb athlete” stereotype. He’s not only got a Heisman Trophy, but he’s usually the smartest guy in the room — which sets his new teammates on edge.
How long is BET going to stomp on this dead horse? The Game has tumbled harder than Scarlet ever since it switched networks and it makes zero sense to create a Season 6 without the two key characters on the show. Trash.
