When Bad Accents Happen to Good Actors

|We here at Accentz Central realize that not everyone can be Meryl "I Never Met a Dialect I Couldn't Mimic" Streep. And we're not blaming the Jessica Simpsons ("Dukes of Hazzard") and Arnold Schwarzeneggars ("Red Heat") of the world -- you hire an actor with marginal talent, and you get an accent of marginal believability.|
But some supposedly good actors -- award-winning, huge-salary-earning actors -- have assaulted our eardrums with the worst accents the silver screen has ever hosted. Some dialect coaches have a lot of 'splaining to do. But in the meantime, have fun with this easy quiz identifying these most egregious offenders.
