With the premiere of Season 6 of BET’s hit television show The Game swiftly approaching, fans are rather curious as to what can be expected this season, especially considering that the show lost one of its main stars, Melanie Barnett-Davis(Tia Mowry-Hardrict) and Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall) has been reduced to a mere accessory character. The show’s resident mama’s boy, Malik El Debarge Wright aka Hosea Chanchez recently chatted it up with Shadow and Act, discussing the forthcoming season and what fans can look forward to.
On Season 5 issues being smoothed out this season:
“Season 5 ended with a lot of the characters being in limbo. Melanie and Derwin moved away. My character was dealing with the crash of his substance abuse problems and his relationship issues, Mom and Dad issues. There were a lot of open ended storylines, which will get worked out in this season.”
On his role as Malik:
“He is a very emotionally charged individual. I know that everyone may see a hot headed person, but it really stems from him being this sensitive and caring guy that really does not know how to express himself in the right way. In this season, you will get to see this character get fleshed out way differently than before.”
“Malik runs through women, and you really don’t get to see the character of a man until you see him with a woman. That’s just the way it is, and not just a fly by day and night woman, a woman that he really loves. You also get to see the character of a man when you watch how a man behaves with his mother. So with Malik, if you look at how he behaves with women and his mother, you will see his character.”
“Dude takes a lot of energy. He is so opposite than me in so many ways. I have to get in the mind set of being on all the time. The guy is on all the damn time. Early on in this role, I prepared for him by watching tapes of Dieon Sanders, Bo Jackson, Terrell Owens. Now, with this character it’s like being on auto pilot. So it’s like retraining something that is already there. I don’t have to study as much as I used to for this role.”
Whose the biggest flirt on The Game cast? Whose the biggest prankster? You may be surprised by the answers.
After sitting down with the cast of the The Game including Tia Mowry, Pooch Hall, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez and Brandy, we got to know a little more about some of our favorite actors and actresses of the hit BET show, including the fact that Pooch is quite the character off stage…
As The Game revs up for its season 5 premiere tomorrow, fans are expecting to see a lot more twists and turns on BET’s show about love and football. Madame Noire caught up with stars Hosea Chanchez and Tia Mowry to talk about their own experience with filming this season.
“Dysfunctional Friends” looks like it has the makings of a Tyler Perry movie, as some of er’body has been added to the cast — including “Single Ladies” veteran Stacey Dash and NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens. Art doesn’t totally imitate life, though. Owens plays a football star in the film who’s recently been traded to a team in Ontario, banking $4 million. Off-screen, he’s a player without a team, attempting to get his child support payments lowered.
The movie is a drama/comedy about college friends who reunite after someone in their group passes away. In the clip below, we see an awkward interaction between T.O.’s character Jackson, Lisa (played by Stacey Dash), and an old acquaintance. Other stars in the ensemble cast include Tatyana Ali, Jason Weaver, Wesley Jonathan, Stacy Kiebler, Hosea Chanchez, Essence Atkins, Persia white, Meagan Good, Reagan Gomez, and more.
I get the made-for-TV movie feel from this one, myself. But what do you think? Could “Dysfunctional Friends” be worth a trip to the theater? Make a decision because this black “Big Chill” is NOT going direct to DVD.
