So ive just been watching a ton off stuff recently where there are British actors putting on fake accents in America. Let me introduce you to Queer As Folk (the original)..The programme that bought you Jax from Sons of Anarchy and Tommy Carcetti in the Wire...just thought some of you American folks might get a kick out of this...i had no idea Jax was this guy..





So just to make this more mental, heres Jax and Carcetti making out in a toilet.



also heres what Stringer Bell and McNulty really sound like, Luther is pretty awesome..

    the craziest one for me was the main actor in band of brothers...he played the all american war hero and sounded like an american...total British dude
  • adam.

    Wow is it just me that has watched The Office (US) and Luther who didn't realise Idris Elba was also Charles Miner?

    my favorite is this guy: Jason Stackhouse from TrueBlood.

    The first time i heard him talk, I was blown away(i think hes Australian). He does the perfect southern dumbass redneck voice... trust me, im from Florida, I have a slight dumbass redneck sound myself.

    I didn't know who Alexander Skarsgard (middle) was before Generation Kill. He did an amazing American accent as one of the Marines in the show. Then I find out he's all Swedish and Stellan's son.

    Also from Trueblood. They loved actors that can pull off accents!

    The vampire Bill in the show is actually British too...he was on Chelsea Lately the other night.

    I have to say, I think Australians & Brits can do convincing American accents. the majority of American actors couldn't do an accent of any kind. there are exceptions of course, like maybe Robert Downey Jr or Johnny Depp, but the rest of Hollywood does a piss poor job

    I always think fake American accents are hilarious and awesome.

    do you mean Tim Roth, the main actor?........ He's English. And he Sounds quite normal to me.

    I just watched a show where the actors have to put on Bristol accents, it was shocking and vile all at once! I hate it so bad when people suck at accents
  • Adhesive Hippo

    When I was younger, I thought British people were stupid because I knew a ton of American actors who could do British accents, but no British actors who could do American accents. So naturally, I figured that it was impossible to fake an American accent. Logical, eh?

    lol one of that kids first roles was on a show called undeclared with seth rogan and a bunch of the knocked up crew (the dude from sons of anarchy)
