While we wait impatiently for the return of The Game‘s sixth season, which is (annoyingly) on pause until July 2, the show’s breakout leading man Jay Ellis is gracing the cover of Delux Magazine‘s June/July 2013 issue.

Photographed by Will Sterling, Jay is styled by J Bolin in a mint green linen suit for the cover, and lays back in jeans, a t-shirt and black leather jacket for his feature titled “Let The Game Begin.”

Inside, the sexy (and single) star talks about what and who inspired him to become an actor, what he’s attracted to in a woman, what he finds important in a relationship, and more.

The Game‘s dramedy has been renewed for a seventh season on BET, which will begin in 2014.
