Lauren London Taking Over For Tia Mowry In ‘The Game.’ Pooch Hall’s Replacement Sought

Lauren London Taking Over For Tia Mowry In 'The Game.' Pooch Hall's Replacement Sought

Lauren London will reportedly join the cast of BET’s mega comedy hit, The Game, as a series regular, in its upcoming 6th season.

London’s casting is intended to fill the void left by departing cast member Tia Mowry (I’m sure fans of the show know all about that). She’ll play a character named Kiera, described as “a former child star who is currently appearing in a Cosby Show-esque sitcom.

And as a replacement for Pooch Hall, who also left the show as of the end of this last season, producers are said to be hunting for an actor to play “an all-star running back.

Meanwhile, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez, Brandy Norwood and Barry A. Floyd will all be back next season.

So what do you fans of the show think about this news?

If Tia & Pooch don't come back to season 6 I'm not watching it period! I love me some Tasha Mack & Malik Wright but they're taking away the main reason I watch the show! Melanie & Derwin makes the show! The game is going to get cancelled if Melanie & Derwin aren't on there… I'm just saying!


It would of been cool if they would bring back the character Dion from Season 1-2 instead of Lauren London. We never really got to see Dion's story in the series. Shes involved in the football world and was apparently somewhat in Melanie's position. So why not use old characters and shed more light on them to keep the content more back to its roots. But honestly when the show was on CW was a a phenomenal show, now its trying too hard and feels like a Tyler Perry film. But yeah i agree that the show is nothing without Pooch and Tia. Really disappointed..

Check This Out

Im gonna freakin boycot season 6 unless Tia && Pooch stay !!!!! Much love to Lauren offa ATL… but "The Game" (best show of all time) is gonna fall off w.out the original cast :| ….
– Season 6 can kiss my ass, kiss my ass, kiss my ass, Season 6 can kiss my ass, all daahaay longg !
#Pooch&&Tia !


No disrespect to Lauren at all , but BOOOOOOOOO ! the show is just gonna fall off completely w/out Tia & Pooch . I mean if they don't wanna lose ratings on the best show EVER , they might wanna consider fighting for Pooch & Tia , or at least wait until their schedule opens up & pushing back Season 6 to the future…
#BringBackTheOriginals ! #Pooch&Tia ! #Derwin&Melanie <33333333 !


They're really working hard to keep this mediocre-at-best show on the air.


Lauren sure is light on acting ability, but there's something very charming and likable about her. Good luck to her. The wheels have already fallen off of The Game, but it's still way better than Single Ladies could ever hope to be. Maybe Lauren will try and rise to meet the level of the cast's talent.


If this doesn't work out, Lauren can always audition for Housewives of Atlanta. Or maybe that other ex-show (Prince's ex, R. Kelly's ex, etc,). Maybe she can even be the lead in a show titled, Lil' Wayne's Babies Mommas. He presently has FOUR babies by FOUR mommas. Lauren had #3. Other babies mommas: Toya Carter of "Tiny and Toya" with T.I."s wife Tiny. Sarah Vivan who Wayne met in Cincinnati while he was on tour. Nivea. Nivea is an Atlanta native and 29-year-old recording artist who failed to hit it big aside from a few songs. The singer has a kid from the singer "The Dream," but had a kid with Lil Wayne named Neal Carter who is now 3-years-old.

Actually never thought of actress Lauren London great choice for the replacement for actress Tia Mowry . Who could replace actor Pooch Hall that's going to take some thinking of who could be a really good fit for the part. So far with this latest news about next season it looks like this is going to be very interesting. I'm hopeful!!!

the black police

She looks the part, no doubt. But her acting talent is questionable. She shined in ATL though. She has something.


I am so glad she's working again, she stunning as the camera loves her but there is huge giant question mark about her intelligence and you all know what I'm talking about!!!
