Ah, "the evil Brit" trope (or is it?), how we Americans love thee.  Whether it's a silent film actor in a top hat, twirling his mustache alongside a railroad track, a cartoon tiger in a 1960s Disney film, or a serial killer with a penchant for fava beans and a nice Chianti, our cup runneth over with evil British villains in American films.  In this podcast, we're diving into the reason why so many of the "bad guys" in American movies have an accent.  Also, be sure to listen for a special announcement in this podcast.  And after you've heard today's episode, let us know why you think the villain in American films is so often portrayed by a British actor.
