: I agree with Marcia- Dinnerbell Mel can handle an American accent. And I believe he does so easier than Daniel Day-Lewis since afterall Dinnerbell Mel is an American! He was born here. Also I believe he did not move to Austrailia until he was eight.
He was born here, moved to Australia as a child (closer to 12, I think, but I could be wrong), but I believe he considers himself an Australian citizen, rather than an American now. And when you see him in interviews, he speaks with a definite accent, so he still has to work on his "American" sound for films.
BTW, I, personally, don't think Daniel does a bad American accent at all, though there has been some discussion regarding that in the past.
And what does Dinnerbell Mel mean? Never heard that one.
