Like I said earlier, he already has another movie role lined up folks. Although Zod's comment...I like.

That has to be the lowest paycheck for an Oscar-nominated role since the old days. Even Hattie McDaniel made out with more if you factor in inflation.

Wow, not only was I wrong but it was the same year that someone made less. Although the circumstances with Jonah are quite different than the ones with Abdi.

Jonah Hill is Jewish and as we all know Jewish people make almost nothing in Hollywood.

So this guy who's nominated for an Oscar is sitting on one side of the room, broke off his ass, and on the other side of the room, they're getting together a $1000 tip for the pizza guy.

Sucks for him. If he can't get another acting job, looks like he'll have to get a regular job. That's show business.

How much did Catherine Keener make to play Tom Hanks' Wife in Captain Phillips?

The only funny comment in a so-far sadly predictable thread.

So, someone doing a take on the "I'm your __________ now" wasn't predictable?

Why??? Because some of us don't give a shit about some poor actor I will never see work? Hollywood's full of them. Ohhhh but he is relevant now though. Only the relevant ones we should care about?

Of course he is broke. Wasn't Captain Phillips his FIRST MOVIE?

Hope to see him in more movies. Like Danny Trejo, his appearance is striking.

I think I see where you're going with this.

Why didn't Barkhad get that role?

Abdi already won a BAFTA for best supporting actor, and is now reading scripts for his next role.
He better stop reading and start selecting.
