that Hollywood is the biggest film production entity but I ask the question:
Why do British actors, who are “compelled” to act in American films, have to put on an American accent?
Are the Americans so insular that every actor who appears on their screens have to have an American accent?
What that says to me is that the American film industry is so scared of British actors, who are, I feel, the best in the world that they force British Actors to speak “American”.
It just goes to show how very insecure the American industry really is.
If one lined up, on an equal footing, American versus British actors, I believe that the British actors, having learned their craft for many years, would beat the American actors hands down but because the yanks have more money, they think that they can rule the roost.
THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS INSECURITY OF THE HIGHEST ORDER AND IS UTTERLY PATHETIC
AND THAT IS WHY THE YANKS SPEND TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND GET THEMSELVES INTO TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DEBT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES.
LET US FACE IT. THE YANKS ARE THE MOST BANKRUPT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD BUT NO ONE DARES PULL THE PLUG
