As the leader of the Somali pirates, Abdi brought the chilling character to life speaking in both English and Somali. By showing the heart behind the terror he was inflicting, Abdi managed to show a fully realized person as opposed to a caricature villain. Did he win?
TBD on March 2 What happened next?
Abdi hasn't officially announced any more projects. We suspect he's still recovering from the Golden Globes after party with Tina Fey
