Do Canadian actors playing American characters (and vice versa) REALLY count as Fake American? The accents are identical in most cases.

I'd say yes. The accents might be very similar but the nationalities are still different.

Plus, from what I get from online sources there are actually recognizable differences between both accents in vowels and the like.

Shouldn't there be something in this article about the dead giveaway of "extra" Rs? British people, along with other people with non-rhotic accents, when given two words without a consonant break (such as "sofa arm"), will insert an R in the middle (sounding like "sofar arm"). I don't think there's any American accent that does this, so when I hear someone say an extra R, I can immediately tell that that person is faking their accent. Worth mentioning? (it's like the "bloody hell" part of the British Accent article)

Idris Elba's accent in Prometheus... It's convincing, but what is it?
