    I don't know Hank Williams but if it's got Tom Hiddleston I'll probably give a watch.

    According to British persons a southern accent is way easier to pull off then other North American ones.

    unless i am mistaking, southern accents, is just a variation of a british accent.

    well all considering which southern accent you're going for.

    I like what Craig Ferguson says... folks think they can imitate a southern and a Scottish accent very accurately..... NO they can't. :lol 

    Since so many southerners can claim British ancestry (Irish, Scottish especially--due to slavery, indentured servitude) it seems most of the time folks from the UK pull off the southern accent fairly well. Aussies too. :D 

    DK.... let's hope they're not going for a Honey Boo Boo accent. *shivers*

    Tom H. looks the part for sure... I think he'll pull it off fairly well.

    He does look a bit like Hank Williams. Hiddleston is going to rock this role. I'm not the biggest fan of country music anymore, but Hank Williams was some of the first I ever listened to and liked when I was a kid.

    It's actually due to the highland (and Irish) clearances.
