We’ve brought it up before, but a lot of (hot!) British talents are taking over American roles. Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Kick-Ass; Charlie Hunnam in Pacific Rim — you get it. You won’t hear any complaints from us about it though… well, not a lot anyway.
While we fully commend a lot of the English for taking on an entirely different dialect than their own, there are some who are clearly masters of varying tongues and others… not so much. So, we’re rating some of the most notable British actors using American accents on a scale of 1-10. Follow along with us, then tell us your personal ratings for the hotties in the comments!
RATING: 2. Love you, Sam. Like, a lot. But it’s not the best thing we’ve ever heard.
Same goes for the accent in Catching Fire. “Do you wawnt a shoogir cewb?”
RATING: 8. He even keeps his accent the whole time he’s on the set. Gotta give him props.
RATING: 6. At least in the first film. The talent blossomed more and more as the saga progressed.
RATING: 9. Did you even know he was British while watching TSN?
And he’s even more brilliant in The Amazing Spider-Man, if possible.
RATING: 1. No, no, no, NO! Never do this again, Emma. EVER.
RATING: 9. He even takes on a Southern accent in The Butler, which is all the more impressive.
RATING: 4. Stick to traditional English there, Romeo.
RATING: 8. If it wasn’t for Skins, we prob would’ve thought this was his usual way of speak.
RATING: 3. Was he even trying to sound American? Not even sure.
RATING: 7. Kinda goes in and out of it, but it’s decent enough.
RATING: 9. His legendary papa should be proud.
RATING: 5. Maybe it’s the time period that’s throwing us off.
RATING: 7. He’s gotten a little better as Daniel Grayson on Revenge though.
RATING: 9. Come on, he’s Chuck Bass.
RATING: 8. Everything but the R’s is working in his favor.
RATING: 10. BEST! It’s Southern, so it’s like an accent on top of an accent. Bravo, Eddie. Bravo.
RATING: HAHAHA. This is more of a bonus, since they’re not exactly actors. We give major cred to Harry Styles, though, for his hilar portrayal.
Play ‘Would You Rather?’ with Sam Claflin!
