->Another mafioso role for me. This time I played the head of Smoke Enders, [[SeriousBusiness using Mafia techniques to make people quit smoking]]. Dino De Laurentiis, the producer, had seen me impersonate wise guys in other movies, and he swore I was Italian.\\
[[KosherNostra "No, I'm Jewish."]]\\
"Unh-huh. You gotta be Italian, you got every gesture. Maybe your grandfather?"\\
"No, my grandfather was Jewish, from Russia."\\
"''His'' father?"\\
He simply would not take my word for it.

->'''Beverly D'Angelo:''' I'm a very, very, very Italian girl. My grandmother was a letter-bride, came over when she was 15; my grandfather came over, built railroads; I went to school in Italy; I ''speak'' Italian; I ''lived'' there '81-'85; my first husband...I'm as Italian as you can get, and I have ''never'' gotten offered or even considered for an Italian part! Because I don't ''act'' like what everybody thinks an Italian person acts like!\\
'''Cathy Moriarty:''' I'm not even Italian; I'm full-blooded Irish and I always get cast as Italian.\\
'''D'Angelo:''' I would KILL for an Italian role!

->In ''Literature/TheReader'', [[Creator/KateWinslet Kate]], English, plays a German, nominated.\\\
In ''Film/TropicThunder'', Creator/RobertDowneyJr, who was an American, playing an Australian, playing an African-American, nominated.\\\
Where's me?\\\
I'm an Australian, playing an Australian in a movie called ''Film/{{Australia}}''... [[AwardSnub hosting.]]

->I started out on Broadway in the original production of ''Yentl'' and won awards for it, and then when the move came out with BarbraStreisand they said, 'We wanna do it authentically, we wanna put all-Jewish people in the cast'....I went, 'I just did it for a year on Broadway!', and they said,'[[VaudevilleHook We don't care!]] You're Irish-Catholic!'

->Yes, 'Aram Fingal' from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

->I'm starting to get the feeling that Suki Yaki's actor, '''George Stone''', isn't really Japanese.
-->-- '''WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob''', ''The Devil with Hitler''

->The Creator/StevenSeagal of today is a bloated cartoon-Buddhist in a buttoned-up circus tent, a spiritual blues warrior, shilling his own-brand energy drink and raving about how Obama should be impeached. He's the ultimate in {{yellowface}}, clad in velvet and claiming to be [[NapoleonDelusion a reincarnated 17th century Tibetan Lama]]...With its cultural links to the colourful world of organised crime, Seagal is vocally proud of his Italian heritage, despite his Irish mother and Jewish father, and has an Asian grandmother on his father's side, lineage he deduced from a photograph Ė ''ďAll I have is a picture of my fatherís family, and theyÖ got pretty slanted eyes. And Asian clothes. I donít know what they are. [[AllAsiansAreAlike But something Asian.]]Ē''
-->--'''Stuart Millard''', ''Smoke & Mirrors and Steven Seagal''

->'''Chris''': To be fair, itís pretty understandable why Liu Kang would think that Raiden was a fraud, since most Japanese thunder gods donít tend to look like French dudes.\\
'''Matt''': Raiden was born in the United States, educated in the Swiss Alps, and then moved to Japan to become a god. [[MST3KMantra Makes perfect sense.]]

->So yes, our Cuban gangsters are currently being played by the priest from ''Film/TheAmityvilleHorror'' and Julia Robertsí brother. Making this even more glaring is that all the other bad guys in the film (with the exception of Ned) are played by actual Latinos. I guess Edward James Olmos and Andy Garcia were busy that year.
-->--'''''Website/TheAgonyBooth''''' on ''Film/TheSpecialist''

->Most of the reason for the mockery is for [[Creator/NicolasCage Nic Cage]] and his over the top Italian accent. '[[IncomingHam BELLA BAMBINA AT TWO O CLOCK!]]' You know, I donít begrudge an actor who knows he canít do a dignified job with an accent and just speaks English. In fact, I admire him. Itís when we get attempts like this that [[{{Narm}} we really laugh]]. I kept expecting Nic to exclaim '[[AdvertisingCampaigns Thatís a spicy meat-a-ball!]]' at the end of every line.

->It's set in Romania, but you'd never guess that from the hilarious butcherings of Olde Englishe accents exhibited by about half the characters. Some actors like Creator/MichaelMadsen [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent don't even bother trying]], much like Creator/KevinCostner and Christian Slater in their [[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves Robin Hood movie]]. But there's nothing, and I mean nothing more hilarious than watching Creator/MichelleRodriguez scowl and [[FakeBrit attempt a British accent]]. It's like watching your mother try to open a can of pickles.

->One of the prisoners is Samantha Mendez (Steph Song). Right. If her last name is Mendez, then Iím Kamala Muta Hassan. At least Paul Diamond put a mask on when he was part of The Orient Express. No way you could tell he was [[CanadaEh a donut-eating, curling-loving, moose-riding Canucklehead]].

->David Carradine is [[ElvisPresley Elvis]] of kung fu, having the honorable distinction of helping to pioneer western martial arts movies only by virtue of blatant racism. He is most famous for playing the lead in the 1970s kung fu serial, creatively titled ''Series/KungFu'', winning the part from Creator/BruceLee, even though Lee helped create the show for the sole purpose of acting in it. Apparently no one told Bruce that at that time Chinese people were considered 'too Chinese' to play Chinese people.

->I will say one thing negative about Boreanazís otherwise stellar performance, and that is his Irish accent needs some more work and is barely comprehensible at times (although this [[OnSecondThought isnít entirely untrue]] of Irish enunciation).

->Creator/PatrickStewart is British, Jean-Luc Picard is French. That said, heís played straightforwardly in an English accent, and the constant sense is that Gene Roddenberry may have had a [[GlobalIgnorance somewhat hazy]] sense of the fact that there was a material difference.

->Imagine [[Film/TheLastSamurai a movie about an honorable samurai clan filmed in New Zealand and starring an American]]. Am I the only person who sees a problem with this? Where do we draw the line? I mean, why not make a movie about Zulu warriors starring James Hong? Or a movie about US Marines starring drunken kung-fu master Simon Yuen?
