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

    Benjamin Waterhouse I totally agree!! EXCELLENT EXCELLENT MOVIE - ACTING -MESSAGE!

  • 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!

  • ellisdtrails420  1 years ago

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

  • Jared Wignall  23 days ago

    I’m able to tell what Daniel Day-Lewis looks like. Gary Oldman however, I really have no clue.

    @Jose Rocha gary sounds like a soft spoken working class londoner in real life

  • Tara G.  1 years ago

    What about James McAvoy?

  • rosey13136666  1 months ago

    His American accent is great but, I can barely understand him in his own accent. It’s like that with most accents in Scotland. I know they’re speaking English but, what the hell are they saying? LOL.

  • Chi Me  1 months ago

    His accents are very good too.

    Alan Rickman Britsh, English, Russian and a couple others and he speaks Spanish too RIP sexy Snape

    Good one - and German! Die Hard - Hans Gruber

  • comanchio1976  1 years ago

    Ariel L Alan Rickman could do British AND English accents!?! Well that's absolutely remarkable!

  • Jessie Fitzgerald  1 years ago

    Eric Bana not even an honorable mention. An Aussie who can do American, British, South African... Underrated talent.

  • Bryce Arnold  1 months ago

    @Karma Agreed. But, have you heard Andy Serkis? Sounds like he's straight out of Krugersdorp.

  • Matthew Patrick  2 months ago

    I'm with you Karma. There's 11 official languages in SA and each language has about 10 different inflections each depending on the province.

  • Ottawa3453  3 years ago

    There's no question both Michael Fassbender and Christoph Waltz should have been in the top 5 at least.
