I hate it when americans try to do a British accent.
You met Simon Pegg? Of all the actors on the planet, he's one of a handful I'd actually like to meet in person.DazZ. said:
Yeah and he's not even American, he's Geordie. Which explains why at times, his accent in Sons of Anarchy isn't all that great either.Wadders said:The guy in Green Street. Not Elijah Wood, the other main character who gets his head punched in. His cockney accent was pretty bad. it made some of his lines sound really forced
I love it when Brittish people appear in american films. Independance Day for example:Fat Man Spoon said:Most Americans (That I know) seem to assume we all have the same accent.
And I too love the fake British acting.
Why did you necro a thread just to troll. First off, the guy was being sarcastic, second, he said that almost a year ago.seagoon said:you have got to be fucking wih me! hugh laurie is british you idiot! if you had ever been to england then you would know that hugh has a normal english accent and is a household name in britain! he puts on a fake yankey accent in house!Marq said:Hugh Laurie in the Blackadder shows. Such a fake accent.
I jest! But seriously, I love the British accents. Especially the girls. It's lovely.
It's actually 'Recieved Pronunciation'LopezMeister said:I speak like this (with the exception of Pip-pip), I'm not exactly upper class, it's just where you come from in the country. I move around a lot and have never really had the chance to develop a proper accent although my accent is a lot less "posh" than it used to be.chstens said:I love making fun of the stereotypical upperclass brit, and I always use phrases and words like "Tallyho!" and "Pip-pip!" Quite entertaining, of course, I have yet to meet a brit that speaks like that.
Also, the "stereotypical" British accent is called the "newsreader" accent. This is because it was the accent with which newsreaders on the radio/TV spoke. Presumably it became "stereotypical" because American soldiers stationed in Britain would hear the broadcasts and associate it with the British and then it stuck.
