      The plot of the film is that Tom Hanks’ Captain Miller and his men are sent to find and retrieve Private James F. Ryan of Iowa, whose brothers have been killed in action and is now the last surviving Ryan, from Normandy. Miller manages to track down Private James F. Ryan and tells him his brothers are dead, only for Ryan to respond that his brothers can’t be KIA because they’re still in grammar school. It turns out that Miller has found Private James Frederick Ryan from Minnesota, and not Private James Francis Ryan from Iowa. So Miller has found the “wrong ‘Ryan'”. Nathan Fillion portrays the “wrong ‘Ryan'”.
