Hmm. Good point. Not sure whether he's got beef with the WG's accent in particular, or American Accents in general.

I just meant that when you're doing Euro-retro cabaret-style stuff, a European accent goes over better than an American one. For similar reasons, if you're doing Hogwarts and the whole British boarding school thing, you'd do well to insist -- as JD Rowling did, apparently over the heads of some important studio people -- that the actors in the Harry Potter movie all be British.

That makes sense then. You can't be all "Grand Funk Railroad" if you're in a Kraftwerk tribute band.

*JK* Rowling, Nick. You of all people should know author's names, no matter how unimportant they are to you!

Also, in 8th grade I heard about the casting call for Cho Chang, and since I was in that age bracket (at the time), I was considering trying out. Except I wasn't British and I wasn't Asian. >:O

Oh, I've seen that series!

(Also did you get that comment about you appearing on LJSecret from me? I thought it was hilarious seeing you in between secrets like "I've never been kissed and I'm 12!")

You would find things quicker if you read digg almost daily like I do! Then you could be as hip and happening as those youngsters!

You're welcome! It was a pleasant surprise seeing you out of nowhere! Plus, I could say to whoever made that secret "yeah, I'VE TALKED TO WHIMSY. BEAT THAT!"

Alternatively, when the movie comes out, I can brag to my friends that I've spoken to the author of the book it was based on.

Nah, but you can fake it much better if you can do the Euro-spiel, obviously!

That's what I was going to ask, except I didn't have much time what with having to get ready for school and all (I happen to be in my school's library at the moment). He kind of made it seem like he didn't like American accents at all, instead of what he said about "Euro-retro cabaret". I was about to spam him with my American accent if he did mean that.

Ah, yes, I shall listen to it when I get home! I also have sung songs, although my voice is terrible and my microphone is as bad as my voice.
