Mekhi Phifer Has New Film In The Cannabis

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Mekhi Phifer is stretching his creative muscles into directing.

In fact, he has a new film in the can – and the cannabis.

Phifer, who plays Dr. Gregory Pratt on NBC’s long-running medical drama E.R., has just finished his first film as a director, Puff, Puff, Pass.

The film is a comedy about two stoners who decide to check into a rehab center with cable TV just so they don’t miss a marathon of their favorite film, The Shawshank Redemption.

Phifer also appears in the film, which stars That ’70s Show star Danny Masterson, and says the comedy is the first installment of what he hopes will be a successful production company.

Puff, Puff, Pass will be released on DVD on May 9.

In the meantime, Phifer will be the focus of a two-part edition of E.R. airing April 27 and May 4 featuring scenes shot on location in South Africa.
