Calling on Somali Community For New Tom Hanks Movie

| No Comments

Minnesota is the first stop on the film team's search of Somalis to cast in the new up and coming film, "Capt. Phillips."

The movie is based on the true story, according to The National, and has caused some concern on the type of characters the Somali cast would take role of Bellingham Herald said: pirates.

"Of course it is about pirates," casting consultant Debbie DeLisi who is leading the search for the East African roles said to Bellingham Herald, "but it is also an opportunity for Somali people to get their face on screen if they want to be an actor or have this artistic opportunity."
