Urban actress Lauren London has scored in role in BET hit ‘The Game’ – and will be joining the show’s sixth season as a series regular.
London— whose acting gigs also include Madea’s Big Happy Family and Single Ladies – will play Kiera, a former child star who is currently appearing on a Cosby Show-esque sitcom.
According to TV Line, the show’s producers are also on the hunt for an actor to play an all-star running back. It is believed that both roles are intended to fill the void left by departing cast members Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall (Melanie and Derwin).
The Game returns next year, with regulars Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez, Brandy Norwood and Barry A. Floyd.
Interesting. However, one has to wonder where this leaves Pooch Hall, who has still been teasing involvement in the show – despite it being confirmed that he’s no longer returning.
