British Actors Are Taking Our Roles, But Not If They Require a Nebraskan Accent, in Cut SNL Sketch

There’s a metric ton of British actors and actresses who can seamlessly transition into a flawless American accent (well, until they have to yell, then the jig is extremely up.) In Broadway’s A Shout Unscreamed, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Cecily Strong star as two performers from across the pond who give their all — and then way, way, way too much more — in pursuit if delivering a convincing Nebraskan accent. This is actually the second Saturday Night Live sketch cut for time this week, making us wonder: who lost track of the clock over there? Not that we’re complaining. Nobody’s going to win a Tony for this play, but at least we got a little more Kyle Mooney and it forced us to look up what Nebraskan accents actually sound like in the wild. Just wonderful.
