Are The Brits Bombing Hollywood’s Acting Scene?

February 14th, 2013

Michael Chiklis Hates Brits

Michael Chiklis Says Yes!

HSK Exclusive – The apparent foreign fashion that’s reported to be taking over Hollywood has led one seasoned out-of-work actor to blast the Brits for taking over the American acting scene. That’s exactly why insiders say Michael Chiklis faked an English accent during auditions for his soon-to-be-released film “Pawn”.

We’re told Chiklis – best known for his role of Jim Powell on ABC’s now cancelled comedy-drama “No Ordinary Family” – recently revealed his outrage over a belief that UK actors – like Daniel Day Lewis and Jude Law – are coming to the US to take the jobs which many American actors are more than competent to fill. According to the actor, it all boils down to that British accent that’s said to remain Hollywood’s a high-demand tongue.

Here’s the drop:

“Michael is telling all of his closet friends that the British actors are taking all the movie roles. A lot of people are riding with Mike, but remain quiet.

Mike is pissed that Daniel Day Lewis got the role of Lincoln.”

Are certain celebs known to have suddenly acquired an English accent overnight? Of course! Just ask Nicki Minaj and Madonna.

Chiklis is correct! This is why so many American movie actors are moving to television!

Spiderman, Wolverine, Batman and Superman were played by foreign actors. You will never ever see an American actor play James Bond!

I loathe British, Irish and Austrailian actors with a burning passion! I can’t stand any of them especially Daniel Day Lewis, Jonathan Statham, Christian Bale, Hugh Jackass, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Cate Blanchett, etc. Fuck all of them.

Hey,

I’m not getting into all the tit for tat….!

I am British, English (actually by birth) all I would like to say is I really rate Mr Chiklis, I regularly watch back episodes of the SHIELD and I think his character in Vegas is top notch.

I have to say, after watching his latest film “PAWN” (actually thought I was downloading something else….! hey hoo) I thought it was a sub plot in his character, in that later on down the line he returns to be yank… and that’s why he was faking the accent, I was wrong he kept it up all the way through.

I would liken his English (London Cockneyish accent) as he obviously spent time watching a lot Jason Stratham films (possibly Turkish in Snatch..?) and probably took the same vocal instructions from Brad Pitt’s tutor (with his Irish accent in both Snatch and The Devils Own.

I would like to recommend those who would like to learn from a great film “BORSTAL” with the young great Ray Winstone.

Not a bad film though (Pawn) held together well by Max Beesly (he is Engish) you can tell that from his demeanor in the film.

Long story short, Mike Chiklis great American actor… hilarious English impersonator… :) 😉

Whatever his reason, I was totally fooled by his accent, the best ever by an American actor.
