Mekhi Phifer

1.- Omar Epps, Love & Basketball, 2000. If you can’t get one ER doctor, get another… Omar was Dr Dennis Grant for ten episodes, 1996-97, and Mekhi (you say: Meck-high) Dr Gregory Pratt for 135 episodes, 2002-09.

2. – Don Cheadle, Hotel Rwanda, 2004. Investors preferred names like Will Smith even semi-names like Phifer, ER’s Dr Prat – over Terry George’s first and only (and, therefore, Oscar-nominated) choice.
