Only in America

Only in America

The incredible story of Barkhad Abdi, a Somalian Taxi driver in Minnesota.

He had never acted a film before 'Captain Phillips' but could win a best Supporting Actor Oscar for his critically acclaimed role as Muse - the real life ( now incarcerated) Somalian Pirate

His acting threatened to overshadow that of the esteemed veteran, Tom Hanks, in the film.

He even had an improvisation which was the best line in the film: "..I am the Captain now"

Saw the flick yesterday and watched him on The Arsenio Hall show

Nodded my head and said: "Only in America will this type of made-for-Hollywood story become a reality"

Check out the powerful story here and the clip from the flick below
