Don't forget Connery was a Spainard in Highlander.
With a Scottish accent of course.

Egyptian, with a Spanish name and a Scottish accent.  Wink

Damien Lewis in Band of Brothers, Dominic West and Idris Elba in The Wire...

I don't see why an American couldn't play Doctor Who. Pierce Brosnan was Bond and he's an Irishman.

Costarring with a Belgian playing a Scotsman posing as an American. And yet, I love the movie.

Seriously though, I don't see why the Doctor would always need to be British, other than it's a British show. Eric Roberts played the Master, and I thought his performance was good campy fun.

So was Sylvester McCoy.

Scotland isn't much of a stretch. It's still part of the UK, which is more than can be said for Ireland.

And then we had Sean Connery playing a Russian sub captain with a Scottish accent in The Hunt For Red October.   Who seen that one comin'?

A little off topic, but Bond is an interesting example of an iconic English character who has been played mostly by non-English actors.

daniel craig - English
pierce brosnan - Irish
timothy dalton - Welsh
roger moore - English
george lazenby - Australian
sean connery - Scottish
ed nelson - American

Of course, this excludes 1966's "Casino Royale," and all the actors who played Bond in that film.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
