Just days after the female lead exited a cable dramedy series, another cast member has dropped out, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
BET’s "The Game" is losing actor Pooch Hall, whose departure closely follows that of co-star Tia Mowry-Hardict.
As previously reported, Mowry-Hardict’s departure was a "mutual decision," with the actress breaking the news to fans via Twitter. She played Dr. Melanie Barnett-Davis on the show since it debuted on the CW in 2006.
Hall is joining the cast of the new Showtime pilot "Ray Donovan," the story says. He played the husband of Mowry-Hardict’s character, a wide receiver for the fictional San Diego Sabers football team.
"As a result of Pooch’s involvement on a new project, BET is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline of the show," BET said in a statement.
