We haven’t seen much of Barkhad “I’m the captain now” Abdi since he was nominated for an Oscar in 2014 for his work in Captain Phillips. But it looks like that’s going to change in 2016. He recently starred in a short film called The Wolf Who Cried Boy which takes place in Detroit and deals with the cutthroat business of scrapping. The film was co-written & co-directed by Luke Jaden & Cort Johns.
In addition to that film, you’ll also be able to see Abdi in Where the White Man Run Away with Al Pacino and Melanie Griffith, Eye in the Sky with Helen Mirren, the late Alan Rickman and Aaron Paul, and The Brothers Grimsby with Sacha Baron Cohen later this year and next year.
