* FakeAmerican: Britain's Anna Friel as Chuck. The end credits even make mention of her "dialect coach."
* MethodActing: {{Invoked|Trope}} by FakeAmerican Anna Friel, who played Charlotte "Chuck" Charles. Friel, who is English, took to using her American accent constantly whilst on set, and only dropped it for phone calls from her mother (as it thoroughly annoyed said mother).

Added DiffLines:

* TheCastShowoff: The producers find ways to use Creator/KristinChenoweth's and Ellen Greene's Broadway cred. (Averted, however, with Raul Esparza, who never gets to show his vocal chops onscreen).

*** This trope also applies to how it was handled in Britain; the series was bought by {{ITV}} and unusually for an American import screened in primetime on the flagship [[{{ITV}} ITV1]] channel - most American series currently bought by the channel are either relegated to off-peak slots (like ''InPlainSight'') or shown on their digital offshoots (like ''Series/GossipGirl'') - but the channel held back one episode because it would clash with a World Cup match. For which England failed to qualify. Needless to say, fans weren't happy.
