i wanted to put something like, "but when i do, i'm not playing an american". but then i thought it was pretty silly to rip on americans when i'm american... check it out man, anytime he plays a british dude, he's wearing velvet.
guy from hannibal? american and therefore, no velvet.
dude from red riding? had an english-ish accent and wore a flippin velvet dress.
commissioner gordon? even though his accent goes from heavy brooklyn in batman begins to sirius black voice in the dark knight, american which means no velvet.
sirius black? well, look at the photo...
