* ''Series/TheWire'': Has several non-US actors including Dominic West (who plays Jimmy [=McNulty=]; is from Sheffield, England), Idris Elba (Stringer Bell; London, England) and Aiden Gillen (Tommy Carcetti; Dublin, Ireland) who attempt American accents with varying degrees of success.
** In the Season Two episode ''Stray Round,'' the show has an example of LampshadeHanging when [=McNulty=] ''fakes'' a British accent while going undercover to expose a prostitution ring. His Brit accent is [[HowsYourBritishAccent awful]] at first, but it ''improves'' (when the actor basically speaks in his natural British accent).
