|August 23, 2006 (Las Vegas, NV) – Domino was one of several hip-hop celebrities to sit down at the final table in ACES, the new poker movie sponsored by online casino Aces.com. Hollywood director Daniel Zirilli brought in old pal and platinum recording artist Domino for the roll. Scott Kusmirek, drummer for the platinum-selling rock group, the Gin Blossoms, also played a cameo role in the sexy poker movie.|
Aces.com is no stranger to the music industry. Snoop Dog and other stars at the Radio Music Awards in Vegas hung out at Aces.com’s backstage poker table. One of them even ended up winning $32K playing cards with the free money Aces.com had put in their account.
“This movie is full of great music,” said Rene Quesada, Aces.com’s Manager. “It’s cool they got these hip hop stars to play in the high stakes game in Rio at the end. Talk about poker faces…”
Domino's 'Sweet Potatoe Pie' was a pop and R&B hit from his self-titled 1993 debut LP. Three years later, Domino delivered his less successful second album, 'Physical Funk'. 'Dominology' followed in 1997. 'D-Freaked It' marked his long-awaited follow-up in summer 2001.
Zirilli has directed three music videos for Domino including 'Money is Everything', 'Long Beach Thing' and his first number one platinum hit 'Ghetto Jam' which quickly became the number one MTV music video in the world at the time.
Zirilli founded PopArt Film Factory in 1990, and has directed and produced over two hundred music videos for artists including The Rolling Stones, Redman, Scarface, Master P, Najee, Cypress Hill, and recent Oscar winners Three 6 Mafia.
