Lauren London Has A Lead Role On ‘The Game’

OMG. Whaaaat?!

The Game is a brilliant show that’s had its fair share of ups and downs. Throwback fans remember when it was on The CW and back then? Honestly? It was kind of the perfect show. Who knew the world of football could be so compelling (and so femme-driven)? Apparently Mara Brock Akil (the creator) and Kelsey Grammar  (the producer) knew. After three glorious seasons the show was cancelled and fans everywhere championed online to get it back. BET finally got me to watch their channel again when they picked up The Game, but still, it wasn’t quite the same. Recently the two lead stars Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall dropped out of the show, but we have kind of exciting news today. Actress and girl-I-would-almost-trade-faces-with, Lauren London has nabbed a lead role on the show. According to TV Line, she will fill the void left by Tia Mowry. The Game fans (I know you’re on here!) get the details inside.
