When we heard that BET’s ‘The Game’ was getting rid of Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall’s character we knew for sure that the show wouldn’t last too much longer. But if ANYONE could restore our faith in the series – it’s actress Lauren London – and from what we’re hearing, she has been casts as Tia’s replacement.
Here’s how it’s being reported by HollywoodReporter.com:
[Lauren London] — whose credits also include Single Ladies and Madea’s Big Happy Family – will play Kiera, a former child star who is currently appearing in a Cosby Show-esque sitcom. Producers are also on the lookout for an actor to play an all-star running back. Both roles are intended to fill the void left by departing cast members Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall (aka Melanie and Derwin). Back for the new season are Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez, Brandy Norwood and Barry A. Floyd.
Now that she’s on the cast, who should play her love interest?
