    I always thought this was an urban legend. However, Steven Speilbergs movie "The Terminal" was actually inspired by a real guy. How strangely cool.

    His quirky story inspired Steven Spielberg's movie "The Terminal" starring Tom Hanks. It put money in Mehran's pocket and could be the ticket to a new life -- if he chooses.

    "Here, it's not life. It's just staying like a passenger and waiting for departure," said Mehran, who goes by the name Alfred Mehran.

    "To be here is just like being in transit."

    Gaunt and mustachioed, Mehran, 59, of British and Iranian parents, has ceded the rights to his story to Spielberg, according to the office of Mehran's lawyer, Christian Bourguet.
