Former FBI agent Joseph Shea can count on some thrills from seeing Tom Hanks portray him in Steven Spielberg's upcoming movie "Catch Me if You Can."
But that's about it.
Since Hanks' character in "Catch Me if You Can" goes by a different name, Shea won't get any royalties or other payments.
The film is about the search for and capture of con man Frank Abagnale, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
In the late 1960s, Shea tracked down Abagnale and arrested him near Atlanta. Abagnale went to prison but escaped during a work detail. He was arrested again and spent five years in prison for crimes that included impersonating doctors, lawyers and pilots all over the country.
"Catch Me if You Can" is based on a book by Abagnale, 54 who is married with three sons. He owns Abagnale & Associates, a secure document consulting company.
