The Game‘s Jay Ellis has joined the cast of Issa Rae’s HBO comedy pilot Insecure.
Also joining the cast is actress and writer Yvonne Orji.
According to Deadline, “Insecure focuses on the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African-American woman through the eyes of Issa Dee, played by Rae. Ellis will play Lawrence, Issa’s depressed and unemployed boyfriend, who has been getting his act together for four years. Orji is Molly, Issa’s best friend. While very successful in her corporate work life, she is very unsuccessful in her love life.”
Insecure is co-written by Rae and Larry Wilmore.
Here’s to hoping Insecure is picked up for a full season. If so, will you be watching?
