Jason Statham wants to be the next James Bond.
And, I am completely ok with that.
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.
