* The vocalists of Alabama 3 are white Brits who do reasonably good impressions of southern African-American accents; on the album version of the TheSopranos theme "Woke Up This Morning", if it wasn't for some distinctly British pronunciations in the opening monologue, you'd never notice.

** Along the same lines, in the newest ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse'' series of 2013, Mickey is voiced by Canadian-born Chris Diamantopoulos, rather than hi usual voice actor Bret Iwan, who was given the role after (American) Wayne Allwine died in 2009.

* Quantic Dreams games ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' and ''VideoGame/IndigoProphecy'' were both recorded in Europe but with the cast all playing Americans. [[OohMeAccentsSlipping You can often hear the accents slipping through in both games...]]

* The very English Cary Elwes does a terrible Texas accent playing Donald Curtis in the Disney dub of ''Anime/PorcoRosso''. To his credit, he has admitted the accent is awful.

* In ''VideoGame/Portal2'', Wheatley (voiced by Stephen Merchant) temporarily affects an American accent in an attempt to thwart [=GLaDOS=] by speaking "outside her range of hearing". This being Wheatley, it's... pretty bad.

The United States has the largest natively-English-speaking population of any country on earth (about 300 million), and due to the tremendous global influence of American-produced media, most non-Americans are familiar with the country's dialects and accents, and assume them easy to imitate. Thus it's not uncommon for ''any'' actor to be asked to sound like an American for a part.
