Fake Brit: Averted. The only people in the main cast who actually play true to their nationality are the British family.
Fake Nationality: To complement the fake American, we have Australian Eric Bana and Irish Saoirse Ronan playing Germans. English Tom Hollander also dons a somewhat vague nationality as Isaacs (possibly German).
Cate Blanchett, the Aussie rose to end all Aussie roses, is a Smug Snake of a CIA agent who isn't afraid to shed some blood.
Tom Hollander, known for characters with a refined diginity such as the nice vicar from Rev, or his idiot politician in In the Loop, or his villainous role in the 2nd and 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
