Eventually Thommy’s charismatic persona clearly translated on to the big screen with a significant role in the 2006 Film, "Waist Deep" (Tyrese Gibson, The Game, Megan Good). In the wake of his mother's tragic sudden death Thommy returned to Maine. He found himself back on the streets bouncing between shelters and squatting in the basements of abandoned apartment buildings.
