In what he calls "an act of greedy self promotion," Tom Hanks will be doing an AMA on Reddit Monday, the actor announced via Twitter.
"Will be Reddit-ing about these guys: Faisal, Mahat, Barkhad, and Paul," he added with a photo of him and co-stars from his movie, Captain Phillips, out Oct. 11. Faysal Ahmed, Mahat Ali and Barkhad Abdi play Somali pirates who hijack a ship in command of Captain Richard Phillips (played by Tom Hanks) in the Paul Greengrass-directed movie. The film is based on a true story of the 2009 incident.
On Reddit AMAs (which stand for "Ask Me Anything"), anyone from celebrities to viral video stars to regular people with interesting stories answer questions in real time from Reddit users. Even President Obama has done one.
The AMA is set to start at 2:50 p.m. ET, according to Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.
