19 Fake Character Accents You Probably Thought Were Real
Jimmy McNulty from The Wire
Portrayed by: Dominic West
Believe it or not, Idris wasn’t the only Brit who flawlessly hid his accent on the The Wire. Dominic, who’s also from London, England, pretty much fooled fans into thinking he was American for a long time. But of course, that only came after he went through a bit of coaching.
In an interview he said: “Whenever I open my mouth in a room full of Wire fans I’m conscious of a sort of, rather deflation of ‘Oh dear… He’s not McNulty.’ But it’s nice that people thought I was American.”
