Actor Mekhi Phifer to join Team Full Tilt?

Sunday, 13 September 2009

Full Tilt’s flirtation with Durrrr hasn’t been consummated yet but that hasn’t stopped the online giants from adding another name to their team. It’s looking likely that Mekhi Phifer, the star of movies Clockers and 8 Mile, is going to become Full Tilt’s latest Red Pro.

The 34-year-old New Yorker, best known for co-starring with Eminem in 8 Mile and for playing Dr Gregory Pratt in hospital drama ER, has some poker pedigree. He won the 2004 Celebrity Poker Showdown Championship, has been a regular at Ante Up For Africa events and has recently been in action in the Mini FTOPS online festival. He’s also played the WSOP Main Event and appeared in WPT events playing for the Love Our Children USA charity.

Phifer joins fellow actors Don Cheadle on the Full Tilt roster. Whether they’ll be able to persuade Eminem, or even Durrr to join them is another thing entirely.
