    He’s very camp, which doesn’t help. Cockney people tend to be chirpy but on the flip side kinda tough and rough around the edges.

    Although terrible cockney accent, even if he was spot on he still would have not gotten the part. Bob a married man with children, would not have the mannerisms and voice of Marty. Good actor, but the role would not have suited him.

    I think he did reasonably well in the final readthrough with the coach, and then the “audition” portion he reverted to a lot of the old vocal habits….

    “Standard British” only spoken by less than 1% of the entire country. Also they were both shockingly bad.

    Who would av realised afta watchin this clip that the American accent derived from English – Mind you, I’m British and I’m totally useless at mimicking regional accents. I can just abou’t do a London (Cockney) as it’s lazy… if you think (fink) Cockney is bad, try the Geordie (South-East) or Brummie (Birmingham/Midlands). The ‘problem’ is, is that regional accents can and do change all over our fantastic small island – i.e. My grandchildren were born and are being raised 45 miles away from where I live and we still *sound* different.
