* ''GenerationKill'': Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard plays US Marine Brad Colbert. His accent isn't entirely accurate at times, but it lends itself toward Colbert's status as Bravo Company's "Iceman" and CulturedWarrior.

* ''Series/{{Moonlight}}'': Two of the main characters are played by Fake Americans Alex O'Loughlin (Australian) and Sophia Myles (British). In a subversion, Shannyn Sossamon, who is American plays a FakeAmerican character (Coraline was born in pre-revolutionary France). In fact, most of the older vampires can be considered to be FakeAmerican characters, especially the 700-year old Lola (played by O'Loughlin's then-girlfriend Holly Valance, also an Aussie).
