As news broke yesterday that Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry, the two most beloved characters from BET’s The Game, would not be returning for its sixth season, loyal fans not only wondered how The Game could exist without these two main characters, but also wondered: what exactly happened to make them leave?
Not surprisingly, rumors ran rampant as fans tried to figure out the truth behind the situation. How could Melanie and Derwin leave the show, especially after fighting so hard for BET to pick up the show after it got dropped from the CW?
Pooch Hall stopped by the GlobalGrind offices recently and sat down with Sharon Carpenter (before the news came out, mind you) and there was a hint of bitterness while Pooch discussed his situation with The Game. He also discusses his recently picked up new role as Daryll on Showtime’s Ray Donovan.
Yes, our hearts are broken as The Game will never be the same, but that’s Hollywood. Check out our exclusive with Pooch in the video above.
