    Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead.

    His Georgian accent has improved, but it still sounds weird to me.

    Sean Connery's "Irish-American" accent in The Untouchables. It sounded nothing of the sort.

    Russell Crowe in Robin Hood. Truly awful, fluctuating between American, English, Australian and more.
