We asked BET’s “The Game” star Coby Bell to give us “insight” on how his character Jason Pitts would celebrate Valentine’s Day. Brace yourself…
EBONY: Your character Jason Pitts in “The Game” is very “economical” when it comes to spending; what’s his idea of the perfect, cheap Valentine’s Day date?
Coby "Jason Pitts" Bell: He would "accidentally" "forget" to bring his wallet and his date would have to pay for everything.
EBONY: What are Jason’s top five Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the “baller on budget?”
CB: 1. A hand written “I owe you a massage" coupon.
2. A gift certificate for [popular restaurant chain] Sizzler,
3. Nothing says be mine like a 3 pack of tube socks.
4. A signed copy of the "Dip N Pitts" cd.
5. I think four gifts is quite enough. Don't be greedy.
EBONY: Is Jason a hopeless romantic or jaded lover?
CB: He's a hopelessly jaded romantic lover.
EBONY: Your character in “The Game” is dating a sassy bartender named Chardonnay (played by Brandy Norwood); what’s Jason’s recipe for the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail?
CB: A glass of Chardonnay with a splash of Lingerie.
EBONY: Are you anything like your character when it comes to relationships?
CB: No…and my wife is very happy about that.
