WILL THIS WORK?: "The Game" Casting New Couple To Replace "Derwin & Melanie" Storyline

*Slight Spoiler Alert*  "The Game" has made a decision about how to replace their focal storyline characters Derwin & Melanie.  Check out what's going down next season inside...

 

Now that Tia Mowry & Pooch Hall are officially OUT for season 6 of "The Game," the finale episode centered around the twosome heading off to Baltimore so that Melanie could pursue her residency at Johns Hopkins. 

What does that mean for next season of the show?  According to reports, instead of just filling in 2 new actors to the Melanie/Derwin roles, the writers are pulling a "Single Ladies" and casting two new actors--one male and one female--to play different roles that will run parallel to the Melanie/Derwin storyline.

With Tia Mowry leaving the show, producers are looking for a new female actress to join the cast in the regular role of Kiera, a 20-year-old former child star who has been in the spotlight since she was five years old and starring on a "Cosby" style sitcom. According to the casting call, she's bright and charming, but struggling into transitioning into a grown-up career.

Kiera isn't the only newbie in town! Another series regular will be hired to play Bryce "The Blueprint" Westbook - a #1, Ivy League draft pick running back who breaks every "dumb athlete" stereotype. He's not only got a Heisman Trophy, but he's usually the smartest guy in the room -- which sets his new teammates on edge.

So the Ivy League athlete and the former child star wil likely hookup (or already come in as a couple) for a new main storyline.  Who can you see playing 'Kiera' & 'Bryce'?  We have a few folks in mind....

Some characters stated are

Some characters stated are good choices for replacements but I think the two best choices should be Jonathan Wesley and Regan Gomez Preston. Those two have have very similar characteristics as Pooch and tia mowry. Jonathan wesley well liked by the ladies, can be a hot head at times and also passionate. Reagan Gomez preston, Sweet, kind, and can sometimes be sassy. Just like Derwin and Melanie. Also they have worked together before in a stage play playing girlfriend and boyfriend. I think those two would be perfect for Derwin and Melanie. Ust look up David E Talbert stage play watch it and You will see or agree with me.

I think I will watch it and give it a try with Kiera and Bryce......these newer seasons with Tia and Pooch weren't nearly as good as the older seasons on the CW...maybe this is the only way they can save the show.

I been hooked on this show

I been hooked on this show for years but this past season was disappointing. I didnt like the constant music in the background at almost the same level of the dialogue and was not emotional invested in the story. Hope they do better next year.

If Mel and Derwin are truly

If Mel and Derwin are truly leaving the show, I don't think I can watch anymore...BET needs to listen to what the viewers want and figure out a way for Pooch and Tia to stay on the show... I really think this may be a publicity stunt to get us all hyped up about Season 6... I hope it is because I really love this show...

I agree with you guys. I

I agree with you guys. I don't really like the direction the show has taken since it has come to BET. They phased out the white chick, Brittany Daniel, and made the show so "low level." I know the actors wanted to continue the show as the fans did as well, but it is BELOW what it used to be. Now, that the cool characters Pooch and Tia have left, what substance does the show have? I don't know about this one... I'll watch the first show in Season 6 to see the new characters, but if it's not good, I'm deleting it from our DVR.

MELANIE AND DERWIN WERE THE

MELANIE AND DERWIN WERE THE MAIN CHARACTERS. I ONLY WATCHED TO SEE THEM GROW. I DON'T THINK THEIR TIME WAS UP, I THINK THE WRITERS WERN'T TALENTED ENOUGH TO WRITE A GREAT ENOUGH SCRIPT FOR THEM. SO BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH THE TALENT, THEY DROPPED THEM FOR SOME LESS TALENTED PEOPLE. A SHOW THIS BIG IS CASTING FOR NEW CHARACTERS? THEY SHOULD HAVE GREAT ACTORS WAITING IN LINE. THE WRITERS JUST COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH TIA AND POOCH'S TALENT, PLAN AND SIMPLE

Ain't no one on an Ivy League

Ain't no one on an Ivy League team being drafted cuz our teams SUCK. Thts why we play in our own league. LMAO! Anyways it will work because it has been shown that some people will watch anything. Including this garbage. I'm so sad athow far the Game has fallen. I'm glad Tia eft.. She needs to build up her brand more on a better quality show. BET needs better quality checkers. They let the show run to wild and get WAYYYY to ratchet.

I agree, the show has gone

I agree, the show has gone downhill since BET took it over. They should expand upon what they have, I love Jason and Chardonnay together! They should definitely write more drama for TeeTee and expand Quan's character. If they HAVE to bring in two new people, I like KeKe Palmer and Tristan Wilds
Anonymous's picture

You know what, I think it

You know what, I think it will work! Granted it doesn't have the same "feel" since its been on BET, BUT in spite of the transition it still is NOT a horrible show; give BET some credit. I think the story lines have gotten better in many regards, but maybe because im just a different breed of soul. Honestly, there hasn't been much love between Derwin and Melanie-and the depths of where there characters can go is pretty limiting. Im looking forward to season 6. People have fallen in love with Brandy aka Chardonnay; maybe this new couple will have the same same affect. Again, looking forward to it!

I've luv'd this show from day

I've luv'd this show from day one, but look at all the seasons, every character has remained the same except Derwin & Mel. Jason is still Jason, Tasha is Tasha, Malik is Malik even with rehab. But Derwin & Mel's characters have completely changed. I stopped watching the show once they went to BET. Why would you change the two main favorite characters for the worst? Get new writers...oh too late cause P & T have left the show & I dont blame them! New characters will do nothing. I would suggest developing Jason & Chardanay, they were soooo funny! It's ironic, Jason hated Tasha's "ghetto" ways, hated black women and wound up with mini Tasha!! lol

I think they should bring in a love interest for Quan and give him a storyline. Amp of the Jason and Chardonny love affair and bring back Kelly to cause drama and give Malik a LIFE.

Horrible idea Melanie and Derwin are one off the resons the Game rocks including Tasha Mac. So becareful what move u undergo............. The Game needs them for survival and to impress its funds.

Bad idea... Instead of

Bad idea... Instead of casting for new characters, expand on what u have & bring back old acts. Bring Kelly back & have her in a cougar relationship with Qwan Kirkland who looked up to Jason. Jason of course will not approve of course. Play off the drama betwen him and Malik like a Mike Sanchez/Tim Tebow thing in NY. Bring Drew back & let Malik finally get his shot at her. Or pair her with Qwan. Hell bring back Pucci & pair her with Qwan. No need to bring new characters

Well, I'm not certain at this

Well, I'm not certain at this point. I really don't like the way they wrote Melanie's character. The show is getting a little sloppy for me - especially in character development. Its very disappointing. I wish the show luck!

What a dumb idea! They may as well close the curtain on this show! Why would they introduce NEW characters in what will likely be the LAST season? I'm so over this show. It's been drama since it went to BET.

Well IDK, for Kiera...maybe

Well IDK, for Kiera...maybe Jordan Sparks, Ke Ke Palmer, Kelly Rowland, Lauren London, Amber Riley from Glee love her! For Bryce, maybe Bryce Wilson (from Groove Theory/Beauty Shop), Romeo Miller, Omari Harwick (but i think he's on another show already), Larenz Tate (even though he's 35 or so, he has a babyface where he could play 20 something), If Lamar Woodley wasn't still playing in the NFl, i'd say get him! He's a cutie! Just a few names, but I don't know what to think of The Game anymore without Pooch & Tia--especially Pooch. Him & Hosea are the two main reason's I even watch the show. I'm glad Hosea, Coby & Wendy are all staying on. I will still watch The Game even though my Pooch & Tia aren't on anymore. It will be bittersweet...sigh.

Keisha Knight-Pulliam and Lance Gross are already on the Tyler Perry show House of Paynes...and I've recently seen new episodes so I don't think they can jump ship to BET! That would probably be a pay cut too...y'all know BET don't have any $$$$ lol

Derwin and Melanie's role was

Derwin and Melanie's role was irreplaceable(sp?) their chemistry is what made me fall in love with the show in the 1st place. Since the show left the CW, things changed with them(Derwin & Mel) and that initial chemistry really hasnt been there, which for me has weakened the entire show! I love "Rudy", but she is not a good actress, and the last thing BET needs is to replace the 2 anchors with mediocore acting at best!!!! Just call it a day! The Game was great when it was on CW, but I think if everyone is truly honest, it hasnt been the same since BET picked it up! But hey, gotta respect BET for trying, they just didnt have the funds to take it to the level it could gone!
