We think this guy is worth a million bucks! He'll always be our captain now and forever!

Barkhad Abdi, who was driving a limo before getting cast in Captain Phillips, got paid a mere $65,000 for his role as Muse the pirate, a payment which was given to him two years ago and which he has since spent.

Come on, he deserves more booty then that! Y'arr he got nominated for an Oscarrr!

In fact, after he finished filming, he went back to Minneapolis where he worked at a mobile phone store before moving out to El Lay for awards season!

While he was attending events he received a per diem, used a town car only for publicity events, and even the clothes he wore were loaners.

Perhaps the fact that people are finding out about his financial situation will force Sony to give him a huge financial bonus. He does deserve it after all!

He also just got cast in the movie The Place That Hits The Sun, so we're hoping he hits his stride and doesn't turn to actual piracy!
