Jason Statham and Colin Farrell have Accents

Jason Statham wants to be the next James Bond.

However,  Jason has one problem…..his hard to understand English accent.

Sure, he has great looks, and a Bond like body.

But, the voice thing is a big problem.

Sometimes, Colin Farrell, who I think is the most amazing actor of our generation, is another actor with a thick accent.

But,  the last Colin Farrell movie I watched,  required my full attention, and sometimes my brain would not work with what I was hearing.  It was hard to hear him through his Irish accent.

I would skip over words, or just omit them from my thoughts, and say to myself, “Huh? What did he just say?”

I guess if Hollywood filmmakers put the dialogue on the bottom of the screen, that might help the “accent challenged person” like myself.
