Worst for me was Keanu Reeves British accent in Dracula, closely followed by Winona Ryder in the same movie.

I think House (no idea his real name) does a great American accent though

That would be Hugh Laurie. He does have a great American accent, indeed.

I'd say Carice van Houten. She does her best, but being Dutch, I ALWAYS hear the accent come through in GoT.

She's improving though.

Slightly off-topic: I've been seeing a lot of non-American actors in Hollywood productions lately. The Brits generally do a much better job of imitating an American accent than the other way around.

Arguing on the Internet is a lot like being in the Special Olympics. Even if you win you're still retarded

Idris Elba has a fucking amazing American accent, didn't even know he was British for the longest time.

Andrew Lincoln
David Morrissey
Lennie James

Lauren Cohan**


All from the "Walking Dead" all do great accents. Being from Georgia and knowing the areas that they are supposed to be from. I can say they are damn near perfect.

In fact, I only knew that Andrew Lincoln was British. (My wife loved the movie "Love, Actually")

Lennie James' was so good. He didn't just have a good southern accent or a Georgia accent. He had a perfect rural, mid-Georgia accent.

** I put Lauren Cohan on there. She was born in Pennsylvania but was raised in the UK and has a British accent. She does do a great Georgia accent but since she is technically American, I didn't know if it should count.

Worst Accent:
Dick Van Dyke in "Mary Poppins"

Mel Gibson - Braveheart.

That accent grates the whole length of the film.

Sean Connery's Irish accent in The Untouchables and Gerard Butler's in the terrible PS, I Love You.

You would think at least the Scottish could do a decent Irish accent.

I didn't realise Lydia from Breaking Bad was Scottish until I saw Lip Service. Duno if it's obvious to Americans though.

I thought she was supposed to sound foreign? I wouldn't have guessed she was Dutch though.

The guy who plays Rick in Walking Dead does a good job with his accent. I didn't even know he was British before reading an article there.

One of the Best IMO is Mel Gibson's American accent. I was completely shocked when I heard him speaking in his original Australian accent for the first time.

Don't forget his stellar Scottish accent in Braveheart.

I love the movie and I like him as an actor, even in the movie, but Ewan McGregor's American accent in Velvet Goldmine is pretty questionable. There have been times when I was watching that movie (because its one of those I've watched numerous times) when I had to go back and be like; "they said he's from michigan right?"

And the scene in Requiem for a Dream makes me crack up when he says "Ma! Ah you takin upahs??"

Dick van Dyke's cockney accent in Mary Poppins is the worst.

Any American actor who tries to do an English accent in a sitcom.
