Best Supporting Accent

Posted: January 15, 2013 by veeshir in Random Crap, The Big Screen

Just because I can actually watch the news doesn’t mean we need to get away from our core duties of answering life’s big questions.

In today’s exciting episode, we’re going to find out the celebrity with the worst fake accent.

Our first nominee paid attention to the small details, you have no idea where he’s supposed to be from.

Leon the Professional.

A few years ago told me he was supposed to be Italian, I had always thought he was Russian and I couldn’t figure out why he worked for Italians.

Next, a non-movie showing but no bad accent list would be complete without its inclusion.

Madonna’s ‘British’ accent.

That makes me giggle every time.

Another non-movie entry, Sean Connery doing a Scottish accent.

He makes me laugh every time. His accent is like Michael Jackson’s nose or skin color, it changes a lot over the years.

The next entry is so spectacularly bad, I would bet that it got some casting type fired, perhaps a whole slew of them.

Seriously, who thought Keanu Reaves doing Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan doing a British accent was a good idea?

The only reason that one didn’t win was because it just felt too cruel and the hilarity of it is reward enough.

I could have made this whole thing about the bad accents in Destry Rides Again, but too many were just bit roles. Everybody had an accent and they were all associated with a different country or region of Europe and not a one of the accents matched the region they claimed.

In that vein, Ladies, Gentlemen, people who read this blog, I give you the winner of the worst accent by someone we’re supposed to take seriously………………….

Marlene Dietrich as Lili Von Schtupp….Frenchy!

I love that movie, but the director obviously had a fever and the only prescription was more cowbe... bad accents.

  1. What about Kevin Costner in “Robin Hood”?

    His Brit accent was sooo bad during filming the director allegedly told him to just stop faking it and talk “normally”.
