A LITTLE HELP OVER HERE…
Typically, it isn’t hard to assess where someone is from. Whether it be due to the color of their skin, their behavior in social situations, an accent, whatever! From time to time, an actor (say James MacEvoy) can have me thinking he’s American but as soon as I catch him in an interview I say, “Oh, okay, that guy’s British!” Done and done.
However, there are 3 celebrities that I just can’t place… maybe you guys can help me out. I’ve researched them but I’m pretty sure their bios have been forged. They happen to be 3 of the best and hardest working actors in the biz. So, can I get A LITTLE HELP OVER HERE… where are these guys from???
1. WILLEM DAFOE.
IMDB says he’s from Wisconsin… I’m not buying it!
I got to thinking about this the other day while watching Daybreakers. It was only half way through the movie that I realized he was rockin’ a mid-west accent. I didn’t even see the change. He’s also such a blank canvas that he can play everything from an eastern European arms dealer or a fem homosexual detective and I buy that too. So, which is it?
MY VERDICT: Based on his strange looks, I actually think Dafoe was built in a super secret labratory using left over body parts from fallen veterans of World War 2.
2. JOHN MALKOVICH.
IMDB says Illinois… that’s not right!
If Malkovich is American, than he’s the only American with an accent… well, him and Madonna. It’s funny cause he’s the only American playing a Musketeer in The Man in the Iron Mask and he somehow manages to sound more European than Gabriel Byrne and Gerard Depardeau (that can’t be spelled right).
MY VERDICT: Honestly… I have no frackin’ clue! I like to pretend he’s Russian like his character KGB from Rounders.
3. CHRISTOPHER WALKEN.
IMDB says New York… hold the phone!
There is just no way. I actually think if you were making a comedy about an alien who came to Earth disguised as a human and tried to blend in, you’d tell the actor playing the part to talk like Christopher Walken… and he’d be hilarious. What with all the unnecessary pauses in the middle of sentences and inflection on the wrong syllables… that’s it. I’ve got it.
MY VERDICT: Outer Space… I’m actually pretty certain on this one!
That’s it for now, Weirdos. Feel free to comment below. I never edit any of the comments. Remember, this was meant to be an interactive site, as much as I love the sound of my own voice.
