              John Oliver looks like the evil archbishop in a historical renaissance drama and we love him anyways.

                    Too bad it was such an awful remake. The effects got so lazy in the second half.

                                            It's like American Audiences don't care, we're casting this character, who's aloof, and dignified, so we need a British accent. It doesn't have to be a Posh British accent, any British actor will do, we seem to think that TOWIE is like The Jersey Shore, only posher.
