My Man Mad Now

'A Stray': Film Review
Barkhad Abdirahman ('Captain Phillips') plays a Somali immigrant who wanders the streets of Minneapolis trying to rid himself of a canine sidekick.

Is Barkhad Abdi now going by his full name à la Papa Roach's Coby Dick/Jacoby Shaddix?

No. Barkhad Abdi and Barkhad Abdirahman are two different actors, both of whom played hijackers in Captain Phillips.


The birth name of Mahershala Ali (Remy on House on Cards, Cottonmouth on Luke Cage) is Mahershalalhashbaz Gilmore. Imagine having to bubble that name in on standardized tests.
