Benedict Cumberbatch’s awful accent as military prosecutor, Lt. Col. Stuart Couch in trailer for The Mauritanian is the worst Hollywood Southern accent since Forrest Gump Lainey, who used to love Ben, railed him on the accent. =======
And we all know she gets paid to share a certain opinion. But, she’s also Canadian, so what the fuck does she know about Southern Accents. She probably thinks there’s only one kind.
This is so lame. B is a great actor, so some people are trying to find something to pick at. Same thing was said about his accent in Doctor Strange, which was fine (apart from a few tiny slips). Give it a rest, already. I’m very excited about this film.
I’ll tell you what’s lame, the fact that Stans and Benedict’s Dollar General Team still refuse to see the rotting PR elephant in the room because let’s face it folks, this fauxmance was DOA. The truth is that SoFail’s non-stop fuckery is interfering with Benedict’s ability to perform. Ask yourselves why he did a much better job in August: Osage County despite being more inexperienced. He didn’t have to worry about that toxic slag’s demands and was entirely free to focus on honing his craft which includes working on regional accents. Ask yourselves why the press was a lot more forgiving towards him before? Because the errors he did make were small, they had a lot more respect for him then and are now as fed up with the ShamCircus as we are!
