ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Some of the Minnesota Somali actors who made their debut in "Captain Phillips" will appear at a red-carpet screening of the movie in St. Paul.

Minnesota Women in Film and Television will host the event Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Grandview Theatre.

Four unknown Somali actors from Minneapolis were cast in "Captain Phillips" as pirates who hijacked an American cargo ship off the Horn of Africa in 2009. Tom Hanks stars as the ship's captain who is taken captive by the pirates.

Three of the Somali actors will appear at the screening, along with search casting director Debbie DeLisi (deh-LEE'-see) and her assistants.
