What’s the point of having an British accent if you aren’t going to use it? These days, it seems like every-other American TV character is played by a Englishman. From Chuck Bass to Bill Compton, our networks are a testament to the new British Invasion. We don’t begrudge these blokes their roles, but we also wouldn’t mind hearing a little London from time to time. Check out our gallery of the best Brits-as-Americans.
Stephen Moyer in True Blood: Stephen joined a cast of New Zealanders, Aussies and Swedes to play Southern vampire Bill Compton. True blood pudding, anyone?
Ed Westwick in Gossip Girl: Ascots, scarves and Oxfords — who could play the inimitable Chuck Bass but a Brit?
