Tika Sumpter Joins ‘Mary Jane’ Cast

Now here is some news I am actually excited about.

While unveiling their fall line-up, which includes shows starring Gabrielle Union, Larenz Tate and others, BET revealed news that former “The Game” actress, Tika Sumpter, will be jumping ship and appearing on their new hour-long drama “Being Mary Jane.”

BET didn’t go into much detail about Tika’s character, but word has it she will play another one of Mary Jane’s (Gabrielle Union) best friends.

Tika now rounds out a cast that includes LaTarsha Rose, Omari Hardwick, Richard Roundtree and Aaron D. Spears.
