    I'd say Rami Malek. I mean, he can do a British accent, a Southern accent and even British with a hint of Middle Eastern.

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

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

    @V of Cups I was surprised he was in Hannibal. I saw the credits and had to figure out who he might have been.

    What about James McAvoy?

    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.

    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!

    I think it's less accents for him and more just that he's native in multiple languages. Also, his tortured gurgling is heard at the end of the clip ㅋㅋㅋ

    Oldman doesn't get nearly the critical acclaim that he deserves; I'm glad he made #1.  He's brilliant.

    1) Oldman's always been just a half-step away from Daniel Day-Lewis, while everyone else--male actors, I mean--have been at least ten steps back; 2) he's not as striking-looking as DDL; and 3) Americans, apparently, can only account for one genius British actor* at a time, as if there were a quota. As long as DDL stays retired (which remains to be seen), Oldman will finally start getting some love--which he richly deserves. He can do it all--hero, villain, drama, comedy, period, contemporary, art-hou...

    Greg Scott yes I love Gary Oldman's acting. He is truly a great. I'm in my 20s and I'm just glad I have taste lol I know a lot of people my age that wouldn't find him entertaining. Its sad.
