BET: Pooch Hall Is Leaving "The Game" For Showtime Network Role, Hopes He & Tia Will Return For Guest Appearances
With Tia Mowry announcing this week she will not be returning for season 6 of "The Game," and reports saying Pooch Hall will not either, BET networks has issued a statement explaining the situation. Deets inside..
BET, the home network of "The Game," said in a statement today that Pooch isn’t returning because of his “involvement on a new project.” That new project is the Showtime pilot “Ray Donovan.”
The network went on to say it “is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline” and hopes Hall and Mowry “will make several guest appearances.”
Still calling B.S. on this ish. Why? Because Coby Bell--who plays the major role of Jason Pitts--has also played a mid-level role on USA network's "Burn Notice" for the past few years now. All while still working on "The Game." So it is possible. Not to mention many of the non-lead actors like Meagan Good, Brandy and others have several different projects outside of the show.
Everybody just needs to keep it 100 about what really went down. And as for the show continuing without the main two characters--just not seeing it.
Oh wells. It was fun while it lasted.
