Wanna Hear What Colin Firth Sounds Like With A Southern Accent?

| Filed under: Film FlickersOrlando BloomColin Firth

Uh, we guess?

Here's a trailer for a new movie called Main Street where all the actors are required to speak with Southern accents. Bad southern accents.

Starring Colin Firth, Orlando Bloom, Patricia Clarkson, Ellen Burstyn, Amber Tamblyn and (OMG WTF), Andrew McCarthy, the movie is about a "small town in North Carolina that is shaken by an outsider who comes in with a plan to reinvigorate the town’s suffering economy."

It looks more like the movie of the week on Lifetime, but who are we to judge?

To give Colin some credit, he apparently made this movie WAAAAAY before winning an Oscar for The King's Speech.

Check out the trailer and laugh softly tell us what U think.

    Wasn't this clip on here about a week ago? Anyway, I'm not from the south, so I am no judge of the accent, but it does look more like a tv drama than a big screen movie. I really like Amber Tamblyn - I liked her on House - better than Olivia Wilde.

    You should really stop having multiple people write this blog if you aren't going to check what has already been posted…you posted this same video like 3 weeks ago saying check out orlando bloom's accent…i'm pretty sure while checking his out we also were able to check out colin firth's..also in the earlier post you were much more optimistic about the southern accents saying he "nailed it" You have also reported the miley liam back together story twice like 3 weeks apart. get your shit together.

    Re: lovedove77 – is right. If you click on the "Orlando Bloom" link above the video both videos are there. The first post Orlando "nailed it" and the second he was "bad".

    Actually, he did quite well. If you were raised in the south, you would understand that different regions of the United States have different accents, which is why some of them have different accents. It's much better than Julia Robert's accent in that one crappy movie.

    Why are you showing the trailer for this film now? It's been out for quite a while. It was posted on torrent sites months ago.

    To his credit he doesn't do THAT bad of a job. It's just because we're just to him with an English accent.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Colin Firth, but that was the WORST southern accent I've ever heard! I've lived in the Raleigh area of North Carolina all my life and that was not even close!!!!!
    They should have cast more southern actors!!!

    bmeddington…..Julia Roberts is FROM the south–right outside of Atlanta. I'm assuming you're talking about Steel Magnolia's? Julia, Dolly Parton and Shirley Maclaine are the only actresses actually from the south in that movie. Now Julia might not have nailed a Louisiana accent, but she got it better than Sally Fields, Olivia Dukakis and Darryl Hannah.

    they all reminded me of Matthew McConaughey

    arent you from miami perez?? then i think you would be aware that a texas accent is different than a georgia accent….. just stop with the space-filler posts. they're annoying and ignorant. done with your site.

    I didn't think it was that bad. Southern accents are very hard unless you already have somewhat of a natural one. His is passable. You have to remember he is English and I don't think any reasonable person will expect him to totally nail it.

    He sounds like Matthew McConaughey

    another job outsourced

    I'm a Northerner, but his accent sounds fine.

    I AM from the South… like deep South. And, folks, let me tell you that Colin Firth's accent in this movie is BAAAAAAAAD. Seriously. Bad. Orlando's? Not so much…
