    No offence to the amazing Bobby D, but ask an Australian about Australian accents. His is good but far from perfect. Kate Winslet has done two films as an Australian - Holy Smoke with Harvey Keitel, and The Dressmaker. In the first her Australian accent is excellent. In the second it is perfect. No small achievement - just ask Meryl Streep after her butchering of our accent in "dingo's got my baby".

    How are you going to mention Christian Bale, and leave out the fact that he played the lead role in Newsies when he was still a young actor?

    Peter Sellers' French accent sucks.
    As others have mentioned, Wolverine is Canadian.
    And Hank Azaria deserves a spot in there.
