*Newcomer Jay Ellis has been added as a series regular on the BET comedy “The Game.”


According to Deadline.com, he’ll suit up as Blue, a running back and the No.1 draft pick from an Ivy League school who is highly educated and often the smartest person in the room. But even though he is bright, he is still a young man who has a lot to learn about life, love and himself.

As previously reported, Lauren London has also joined the cast for the show’s sixth season. She will play Kiera, a former child star who now appears on a “Cosby Show”-style sitcom.
