Why is an Irish accent so hard to do in a movie. I have just come from seeing Mission Impossible III and Jonathan Ryers Myers a guy from Ireland and his accent was terrible. The audience started laughing when he spoke. Are actors told they must speak like Darby O' Gill?
Maybe that is a true Mission Impossible to get a decent Irish accent in a Tom Cruise movie. (Far and Away Anyone). As for the film itself. Think of Alias the movie.
