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

    Sam Hart I totally agree.

    I agree. He was unrecognizable in Green Book, both his voice and his mannerisms... and had a PERFECT Italian Bronx accent. I hope he gets the Oscar <3

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

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

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

    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!

    Fulahno my god that’s ridiculous that’s like saying australian and New Zealand is the same for a start Canada has the same government as other commonwealth countries with a prime minister not a president and the accents are way different as well . Much prefer a Canadian to an American .

  • Michelle Flood

     (Mar 9, 2019)

    Rayzorbladez but he’s played by an Australian so it’s kinda not the point the video is making !
