"The Game" makes its Season 5 premiere Tuesday night at 10 p.m. EST on BET, and the cast of the football drama hit the daytime circuit in full force Tuesday morning. They stopped by "The Wendy Williams Show," (weekdays on Fox) where new addition Brandy Norwood joined Tia Mowry, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Pooch Hall and Hosea Sanchez for what Williams called "The Game" Game, a trivia contest where the cast tested out how well they knew each other.
As it turned out, they're pretty well acquainted with each other, and the segment yielded a few fun facts about the actors. We learned that Coby appeared in an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," that Pooch Hall guest-starred in "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kandi Burruss' music video, and that Brandy went to the Kobe Bryant's high school prom.
Real and fictional football players collided when Bell and Raquel Robinson did a segment on "Good Day N.Y." New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was also on set, and at Rosanna Scotto's request, Cruz and Bell taught each other how to do the other's signature end-zone celebration. Cruz gave Bell and Raquel Robinson a lesson in his patented salsa dance, while Bell showed Cruz the Dip and Pitts, which his character Jason Pitts has made famous on "The Game."
