London Joining BET’s ‘The Game’
When fans of BET’s “The Game” heard that its two lead actors weren’t returning for the show’s sixth season, many wondered who could possibly replace them. Now it looks like producers for the program have found an answer in actress Lauren London. The model and ATL star will reportedly help fill the void left behind by Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall. As previously reported, Mowry and Hall announced in May that contractual issues kept them from coming back. “I had a great time on the show,” said Mowry who’s been adamant that their departure was amicable.
According to TV Line, London will play Kiera, a former child star who stars in a “Cosby Show”-esque sitcom. And while details are skimpy, the show will also introduce the character Bryce “The Blueprint,” an Ivy League grad turned No. 1 draft pick and Kiera’s current boyfriend. “The Blueprint” will take the place of Derwin as a lead. Before snagging her role on “The Game,” London appeared on “90210,” and in the films Madea’s Big Happy Family and I Love You, Beth Cooper.
With one role secured for the sixth season, who do you think could join London and replace Derwin? Check out three of our guesses below. –danielle canada
