The Word: Navy SEAL crashes 'Captain Phillips' premiere

If a Navy SEAL wants to see "Captain Phillips," he sees that movie, security or no security.

Don't bother inviting a Navy SEAL to your movie premiere, or putting him on the guest list. Ifa Navy SEAL wants to see a movie, he sees that movie, security or no security.

Tom Hanks' new film "Captain Phillips," in which he plays the captain of a cargo ship that's hijacked by pirates, features a Navy SEAL sharpshooter character who was involved in the rescue. Of course, no one can know the real identity of the SEAL the character was based on, so he wasn't invited to the premiere — but he somehow attended anyway, according to Page Six.

A source says that the man attended the premiere undetected, and several people later congratulated him — assuming he had played a role in the movie.

I'd say this was a really cool, unique story, but now I don't even know. Maybe there are Navy SEALs sneaking into every movie premiere. Maybe there is a Navy SEAL in disguise in this very room. I will never know.
