TV FAB: BET's "The Game" Casts New Male Lead...Jay Ellis

​ ​ ​ ​

Industry sources have revealed that actor Jay Ellis has landed a leading role on BET's "The Game" as its newest male character. Get the deets inside....

We told you earlier that Lauren London signed on as the new female lead for BET's "The Game," and now Deadline Hollywood has revealed that 31-year-old actor Jay Ellis will also be hitting the field next season.

Jay, who had previous roles on “Hart of Dixie” and “NCIS,” will play Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbrook, a.k.a. Blue, a star running back from the Ivy League who rubs some of the Sabers the wrong way.  

Though plot details are under wraps, Jay's character is expected to have a relationship with Lauren's 'former child star' character on the show.  Jay, himself, is a military brat who lived all over the world with his parents while growing up.  And also went to Concordia University on a basketball scholarship.  So it seems like his real life experiences could help his on-screen character.

You feelin' this?

I do not think his form of beauty will attract the ladies. Folks who watch the Game want to imagine themselves with a guy like Derwin pursuing them and understand all the drama that Melanie went through with him because of his sweetness but ALSO his sexiness. Let's hope BET makes note of this before releasing episodes...

Love is such a powerful emotion, that once it envelops you it does not depart. True love is eternal. If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn't love you were in. There are no 'exit' signs in love, there is only an 'on' ramp. (( M_i_x_e_d_M_a_t_c_h_i_n_g. c_0_m )) Lots of my friends found their lovers through the se'rvice. You may have a try... ;)

I don't know this guy, but

I don't know this guy, but maybe he's a good actor. He's definately not bringing the star power that Lauren does. All the more reason for Brandy and Coby to take the lead.

Hmmm, a young quarterback who rubs the other Sabres the wrong way. Doesn't Bryce's character sound a lot like Kwan Kirkland? In any even, it doesn't matter who they cast because even if they put Jesus Christ and the 12 Apostles in Season 6, the show is beyond saving.

That show's been a wrap since the new season started. Maybe if he has many scenes with Jason & they bring back Kelly, it might work.

I honestly think the show can

I honestly think the show can survive without the additions of Lauren London and this young man/tia and pooch hall. Adding these two new faces will dramatically change the landscape and overall feel of what people identify as "the game". I think Brandy, Coby, Tasha, Pookie and Malik have more than enough left to create an amazing 6/7 season. IF BET chooses to go along with two new lead roles; I wouldn't go with Lauren London or this beautiful young man as the main characters. Whoever you pick must be able to blend in with existing cast NOT create an entirely new spin off. IF the show winds up being a success without tia and pooch; im sure they will realize that they messed up big time by leaving. But it all remains to be seen. I say keep scouting for other faes and fine (not who's pretty) but who "fits". Good luck BET, I will be watching-fell in love with brandy and jason. God bless:)

The show is going to be cancelled again. There was no point in even reviving it. I don't know if anyone still even watches it. The storyline has become kinda wack, and it's not even funny anymore.

I think they're doing this

I think they're doing this purposely to end the Game once and for all....... not bashing the newbies in anyway....but season 6 will be the last of the game :( gonna miss this show, the show is Mel and Derwin, it was based on them after all....... hope and pray that the next good black comedy doesn't take long to surface ............

He's cute, and I'm sure he's probably even cuter now than the old picture they posted. In any case, i think it's good they got new characters. The show will go in a much different direction, which is good. Change is good people!! Tia & Pooch ran their course, and now its time for someone else to contribute. Give them a chance, that's all i' saying..
