Daniel Craig in Dream House is the worst accent in recent memory. It's like some south african/canadian/brooklyn monstrosity.
Which is weird cause his american accent in The Jacket was pretty god damn convincing. Maybe he's just forgotten.

Ewan mcgregor is bad at american.

Dominic west is very good at American (to my English ear)

Samwiss Gamgee. All over the place. Sometimes good sometimes way off

But me. When I'm drunk. I'm the best at accents.

Has anyone ever played it back to you when you're sober?

I have a tendency to start speaking very bad Italian when I get drunk. My friend's all think it's hilarious.

Nope. But I'm sure it will still sound spot on. :D

Don't hurt yourselves, but I defy anyone to be able to understand half of what the bald guy is saying:

"The Killing" Chess Club Scene (Stanley Kubrick, 1956)


Great movie, though.

Jason O'Mara in the US version of "Life on Mars" does an excellent American accent. I didn't know he was Irish until he played an Irish character and let loose his rich brogue.
