‘The Game’ Actor Boards ‘Masters of Sex’

Showtime has added Jay Ellis (“The Game,” “November Rule”) to the cast of “Masters of Sex.”

Ellis will play Dr. Cyril Franklin, another M.D. who will go head-to-head with Michael Sheen’s uptight Dr. William Masters as they share an office space with a mix of patients. The second season of the series debuts July 13 at 10 pm ET/PT.

Ellis is repped by Talent Works.
