When BET’s hit show “The Game” returned this week for its seventh season, viewers knew they could count on Terrence “Tee-Tee” Carter to bring the laughs. Tee-Tee is just one of the tricks Actor Barry Floyd has in his toolbox. Floyd took time out of the hype around the return of “The Game” to talk with Hidden Remote about what we can expect from the new season, the actor he’s always admired, the TV shows he thinks are must see, and some insight into the life of a Philadelphia sports fan.
1. “The Game” returns to BET on March 4th for its seventh season, what can we expect from “Tee-Tee” this year?
This season Tee Tee gets into some financial trouble with the Cluck Truck. We will get to see him at his lowest point, which is very exciting for me because it gave me some opportunities to show my skill as a dramatic actor. To this point, the industry mostly views me as a comedic actor and it’s nice to be able to show that I am capable of doing both
The best part of being on The Game would have to be the longevity of the show. We are going in to our seventh season. In this business, having a steady job for seven years is a blessing and I don’t take it for granted.
Without a doubt, the actor who has had the most influence on my career so far is Samuel L. Jackson. He’s a pop culture icon and his IMDB page is a mile long because he is always working. I don’t need to be a household name like him, but I would love to work just as consistently.
People are always asking me where it is. LOL. I should rent a food truck one of these days and just drive around in it taking pictures with people.
