* ''Literature/JoePickett'': In ''Breaking Point'', the regional director of the EPA is named Juan Julio Batista and claims to be Latino. He is utterly ruthless and has advanced through the organisation by accusing anyone who opposes of him of racism. However, he is really an Anglo. Batista is his stepfather's name (his mother remarried when he was in his 20s) and he changed his named from John to Juan in order to take advantage of his naturally dark skin to deliberately play the race card.

* In ''Film/{{Clue}}'', FrenchMaid Yvette speaks with a French accent for most of the movie, [[OohMeAccentsSlipping although it's sometimes heavier and sometimes lighter]]. When she's away from everyone else however, and believes herself to be speaking with her secret employer, she drops the French accent entirely and speaks with an American accent. Miss Scarlet, who runs a brothel in Washington D.C., also confirms that Yvette used to work for her there.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/MelissaMcCarthy movie ''Film/{{Spy}}'' has Aldo, the hilariously over the top collection of Italian stereotypes, which includes fashionable dressing, [[LovableSexManiac inappropriate flirting with/sexual harassment of every woman in sight]], [[DrivesLikeCrazy driving like a complete madman]], etc. At the end of the movie he explains to the main character that his name is actually Albert, he's part of {{MI6}}, and Aldo was just a cover identity he got a little too into, apologizing for his behavior [[QuintessentialBritishGentleman like a proper British gentleman]] all the while. However, he then screws with her head a little bit by hinting that maybe he's faking being English instead, and continually switches back and forth between English and Italian accents, complete with different ways of carrying himself.

* In an episode of ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', Cookie enters a new class and decides to reinvent himself as a transfer student from Britain so the class will think he's exotic and cool. It falls apart when he reaches the class and meets [[IAmOneOfThoseToo an actual British transfer student]], who exposes him almost immediately. [[spoiler:Later, Cookie deduces that the Brit was ''also'' a Fauxrigner pulling the same trick he was for the same reason (he ''was'' a transfer student... from Ohio). He figures it out because, while Cookie did do some research for his role, the "Brit" [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage kept using American colloquialisms instead of British ones.]]]]
