Nope, I'm not talking about Tom Hanks, the real deal will be here May 2!

Captain Richard Phillips, the U.S. ship commander who was taken hostage by Somali pirates, will be in town to speak at an event benefiting Davenport University scholarships.

The event will be held at Davenport's Excellence in Business Award Gala coming up at DeVos Place on May 2nd.

Captain Phillips wrote a book about his experience, and was portrayed by Tom Hanks in the 2013 movie about the attack.
