“The Game” is one step closer to making its long-awaited return to TV now that BET has secured a couple cast members.
S2S has exclusively learned that BET’s deal to resurrect “The Game” has been finalized and at least two members of the original cast are locked in for the show.
A source close to the cast told us at night that Hosea Chanchez flew to New York to do upfronts with the network. That means our favorite cocky quarterback Malik Wright will take the field again. And we hear that Tia Mowry will also be reprising the role of Melanie Barnett.
Sadly, we found out that BET won’t be bringing everyone back. And we hear that Coby Bell, who plays Jason Pitts, might not return as a series regular. He recently signed on for a major part in “Burn Notice.”
More details on the cast will be posted as they become available.
