Are The Brits Bombing Hollywood’s Acting Scene?February 14th, 2013
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.
