Captain Phillips Oscar Nominee Barkhad Abdi Might Be The Captain, But You Wouldn't Know That Based On His Bank Account!

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!

Barkhad Abdi Brings A Style Misstep For His First Mate To Fix At The 2014 BAFTAs!

First mate, do your job!

Barkhad Abdi might be the captain, but he needs someone to fix his tie!

The Captain Phillips star walked the BAFTAs red carpet in a suit that looked pretty spectacular except for that oddly crooked bow tie!

The rest of his suit fits him perfectly, and his date for the night is rocking her simply chic nude and black dress that shows off what she's working with!

His style would've been a grand slam if only his lovely first mate had straightened that tie out! We're sure Gilligan would've done it for his captain!

P.S. Congrats! Barkhad won Best Supporting Actor! A well deserved (albeit surprising) feat, cap'n!

We ALWAYS appreciate a clean cut suit!

And we're happy to see Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi looking picture perfect at the Critics’ Choice Awards!

The Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominees (both for their respective roles in intense thriller Captain Phillips) hit the red carpet in classic suits that had just the right fit!

Some might find a simple suit to be a bit on the boring side, but we can't help but adore how dashing it always makes men look.

Whether in grey like Tom or in black like Barkhad, there's no shame in a flawless suit!

A++!
