"The Game " cast brought a fictionalized version of the drama of athlete's relationships long before "Basketball Wives" and "Football Wives" showed us the real thing. Set in the world of professional football, "The Game" sitcom ran from 2006 to 2011 and revolved around three women and their ties to football players.

Tia Mowry as Dr. Melanie Barrett.

Mowry brought heart and a great sense of comedic timing to the studious Melanie Barrett. Mowry grew up in show business, starting with various guest spots in 1990 at age 12. By 1994, she and her twin sister Tamara Mowry were starring in their own comedy "Sister, Sister" with veteran comic actor Tim Reid.  After wrapping the final season of "The Game" in 2011, she gave birth to her first child.

Brittany Daniel as Kelly Pitts.

Daniel played Kelly Pitts, the gorgeous blonde full of insecurities, with great sensitivity. Daniel is also a twin, who started her career in the teen daytime drama "Swan's Crossing" with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Before "The Game" she was best known for "Sweet Valley High", which she starred in with her twin, Cynthia Daniel.

Wendy Raquel Robinson as Tasha Mack.

Tasha Mack took no prisoners as a football mom and sports agent and Robinson played the part with sass. Prior to "The Game", Robinson played Regina Greer on "The Steve Harvey Show." She is also an owner of Amazing Grace Conservatory, a performing arts school for youth.

Pooch Hall as Derwin Davis.

Former Golden Gloves boxer Pooch Hall brought the charm as perpetually confused Derwin. He began his screen career with guest appearances before being cast in the 2005 mini-series "Miracle's Boys." While on "The Game", Hall split his time between the big and small screen, appearing in the films "Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming" and "Jumping the Broom."

Coby Bell as Jason Pitts.

As the steroid using husband/ex-husband of Kelly Pitts, Bell carried some of the heavier plots in this sitcom. Bell worked on the short lived "L.A. Doctors" before landing the role as Tyrone Davis on the cop drama "Third Watch." During the final season of "The Game" Bell did double duty, also playing Jesse Porter on "Burn Notice."
