Tahmoh in The Winner (2002)

Because of late I'm apparently all about resurrecting obscure past roles in tiny indy films, I bring you: Tahmoh Penikett as Jackie in The Winner (2002).

How much money is enough to kill for? Can friendships persist through greed and suspicion? These and other questions are explored in The Winner, a fast paced 15-minute film that exposes the frailties of human nature in four diametrically opposed characters.

A group of roommates celebrate winning two million dollars in their lottery pool. The next morning they awake to find that one of them is dead! The ensuing battle of wits and finger pointing leaves us wondering how they all managed to live together in the first place. Who is telling the truth, who is teaming up with who? In a thrilling twist, the winner is revealed in the biggest lie of all

Tahmoh Penikett as "Jackie":
Tahmoh's bio from the press kit:
Tahmoh recently played "Eric" in Glory Days, a new Warner Brothers series and has also appeared in over 15 independent films including Suspicious Circumstances, Clive and Below the Belt. He is a graduate of the Victoria Motion Picture School and is currently studying at the Lyric School of Acting in Vancouver. Born in Whitehorse, Yukon, he enjoys training and looks forward to future projects.
Ah ha! More obscure films for me to search out...

Unfortunately, I think Tahmoh plays the dead guy in The Winner.
(Insert bad "I guess he's not really a winner" joke here).
