Don’t mess With Us on ‘The Game,’ Because We Got Options

Actress Tia Mowry and her twin Tamera usually don’t audition for the same part, but in the case of CW’s new “Girlfriends” spin off “The Game,” the two sisters went in for the role.
“We’re always stressing that we’re different people, and casting people said that,” Lowry said at her show’s TCA session Monday. “I did a different approach to it.”
And in her family if one Mowry gets it “we all win.”
Co-star Brittany Daniel was somewhat struck by the Mowry’s support for one another.
“I don’t know how you all audition for the same role,” she said, noting her sister used to act but has since given up the business for motherhood and career in photography.
But one of their co-stars saw a good opportunity for the show.
If anything happens to either of you we have backup,” Pooch Hall said to laughs from the critics and “Game” creator Mara Brock Akil.
That’s one way to cut back on contract re-negotiations.
