    +Jamie Weber As an American I notice he has a slight lilt on occasion

  • exslave nowfree  (Jan 24, 2019))

    Try arabic vocabulary for richness....12,300.00 words...

  • Sam Hart  (Aug 6, 2018))

    Viggo Mortensen is criminally underrated. He's a better actor than most of Hollywood. I wish he was cast in bigger movies more 😕

  • Kristi !  (4 hours ago))

    Ill forever love him in The Lord of The Rings and Hidalgo.

  • Trevor Shuff  (Mar 15, 2019))

    Sam Hart I totally agree.

  • Biosnap  (Nov 25, 2017))

    Viggo Mortensen speaks fluent Spanish with native Argentinian accent and can act with Spaniard accent... Movie: Alatriste...

  • dante ignacio  (Mar 16, 2019))

    And a fan of san lorenzo

  • Kári Simonsen  (Mar 1, 2019))

    And he is half danish

  • Rayzorbladez  (May 26, 2018))

    Wolverine is Canadian, not American.

  • Artemis Strong  (5 days ago))

    But dear Mr. Jackson wasn't speaking with a Canadian accent. His Wolverine talks like an American.

  • Raptor man  (6 days ago))

    Idk about that never heard him apologize for anything

  • Daniel Ponder  (Aug 24, 2017))

    Viggo is also a polyglot able to speak English, Danish, Norwegian, French, Italian, and Spanish

  • Rerh_Money S  (1 day ago))

    So is Daniel Bruhl

  • leah m  (Mar 11, 2019))

    Shifty Girl lmfao right tho

  • Paulo Alexandre  (Feb 16, 2018))

    I feel like Elba should have gotten a place in the countdown instead of just a mention. Dude is from Hackney, can make Baltimore accent, Sowetan accent, Jamaican accent and probably Chinese accent if you ask him to.

  • tshego mofokeng  (3 days ago))

    His South African accent was trash. Only South Africans hated it😂 but he's perfect at everything else

  • FergalCanada  (Mar 5, 2019))

    Absolutely. I saw the wire before guy ritchie's rock n rolla, and had no idea he was British until then.

  • VITTORIA ALBESIANO  (Jun 3, 2018))

    What about Cillian Murphy??! He's from Ireland but he fooled everyone with his American accent (in most of his movies) and with his "brummie" accent in Peaky Blinders... Most people don't even know he's irish!

  • Mark Lemley  (2 days ago))

    He had a good accent in Anthropoid

  • Han Drayss  (Mar 8, 2019))


  • Taron Egerton Obsessed  (Dec 16, 2017))

    Where is Johnny Depp on the list?

  • RD S  (Mar 6, 2019))

    +Sally Avis bitch you were the one that was rude to me, don't get it twisted. I said he's on crack and you took it personally because you can't handle the truth. So who's the keyboard warrior? The person with knowledge that an actor abuses drugs? Or the sad person who insults the other person because they have their whole identity wrapped up in following a ”career” of a celebrity that doesn't even know she exists?But as far as which actor I think is talented? Daniel Day-Lewis

  • Sally Avis  (Mar 6, 2019))

    +RD S why don't you go back to the stone you crawled out for. Under and stop with the stupid replies just as a matter of interest it would be interesting for me to know which modern day actors you think are as good or better than Johnny depp?

  • ellisdtrails420  (Jan 30, 2018))

    I honestly have no idea what Gary Oldman really looks or sounds like. Almost the same with Daniel Day Lewis.

  • V of Cups  (Mar 10, 2019))

    +Jason K oh well whatever, forgot it was from this clip. If you notice my first comment was 2 weeks prior, I didn't rewatch it.

  • Jason K  (Mar 10, 2019))

    +V of Cups Woah you watched the video?! No way!

  • Tara G.  (Jan 4, 2018))

    What about James McAvoy?

  • FergalCanada  (Mar 5, 2019))

    +Millie226 watch 'Wanted' again, and see if you feel strongly about that

  • H o n e y  (Feb 21, 2019))

    That man is basically gold, His many accents in split alone say it all!
