* Grissom on ''{{CSI}}'' is observed several times speaking sign language, as his character has a deaf mother, and it's a plot point in the early seasons that he's going deaf himself. Will Peterson, the actor playing him, had to learn the signs by rote, as he didn't know the language. Reportedly he did such a good job doing it that fans have gone up to him and attempted to sign to him, only to be confused when he confessed to not understanding it. Interestingly, one episode with a deaf schoolteacher tells Grissom his sign language is a little rusty, possibly as an InUniverse justification for any flubs the actor makes.

* In the second ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sOMvf5fBAU Kaji and Mari speak English]]. Mari does OK, but Kaji's accent is practically unintelligible without subtitles.

Judging from some of the expressions on the faces of the people he's talking to, it's possible that [[RealLIfeWritesThePlot the character's English is as bad as his actor's]].

* While Christoph Waltz really does speak the German, French, and English required of him in "Film/{{Inglourious Basterds}}", for the scene in which his character speaks Italian he learned his lines phonetically.

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' has the first ending and a number of scenes with Italian dialogue. Every time it's grammatically correct but with the pronunciation so off that actual Italians watching the original dub mistake it for Japanese.
