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.


  1. Am I the only person not feeling this girl? I think people want her to be the next Gabrielle but she has the personality of a wet piece of cotton.

    I’m still going to check out the show but I hope she brings something to this character that she didn’t bring to the others.

  2. Congrats to Tika! I remember her from OLTL as Vangie’s sister.

  3. @ Kanyade-Don’t you just miss OLTL??????? LOL such a great show!!!! 🙂

    She had personality on there, but not one to hate on the hustle………….CONGRATS Tika!!!

  4. Tika was great on OLTL even though she was so sorely underused. Looking forward to seeing her in Sparkle and then in Mary Jane in the Fall.
