Looks like IrishCentral movie critics had it right: legendary Scottish actor Sean Connery has the worst movie accent of all time, according to film fans.
Connery may have won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of tough Irish cop Jim Malone in 1987’s “The Untouchables,” but according to a new U.S. cinema ticket agency poll, his Irish accent in the film was less than to be desired.
The Edinburgh-born actor has often been criticized for failing to lose his famous Scottish brogue when playing non-Scots, like Irish cop Malone in “Untouchables” and Russian Captain Marko Ramius in “The Hunt for Red October.”
Right behind Connery in the run for worst movie accent is his “Untouchables” co-star Kevin Costner, whose English accent in “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” was the pits.
Tom Cruise’s awful Irish accent in “Far and Away” ranked in at third worst.
