Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey resumes filming the lead role as series regular “Toby”, in the new live action comedy for Corus and YTV, The Game.
When you’re a young teenager, sometimes it can feel like your every embarrassing, mortifying, cringe-worthy moment is being watched by everyone. And in Toby Martin’s case – it is. Toby’s your average 13-year-old 7th grader. He’s dealing with growing pains, zits, a changing voice, an annoying younger sister, some mild social awkwardness and a burgeoning, intense interest in girls. Added to this, Toby’s life – unbeknownst to him – has become The Game. His attempts to get through the day without too many disasters are followed by two sportscasters, Bob and Dave, who give play-by-play, analysis and colour commentary of Toby’s every move for viewers at home. They cheer for him when he wins and feel defeated when he loses, but are always in admiration of how Toby tries to triumph in each mortifying challenge that life throws his way.
