As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins and Dick Van Dyke's famously awful attempt at a cockney accent, we look at other actors who didn't fare well when it came to other vernaculars...
Wahlberg wants Fighter follow-up
Mark Wahlberg played Irish-American boxer Micky Ward
Mark Wahlberg wants to make a sequel to The Fighter.
The Departed star played Irish-American boxer Micky Ward in the biopic, and would now like to make a follow-up focusing on Micky's classic series of fights with Arturo Gatti, which are celebrated as some of the most spectacular in boxing history.
Mark, who also co-produced the film, told Extra TV's Mario Lopez at the Oscars: "Now we're going to talk about doing number two. We're going to do the Ward/Gatti trilogy and make it real."
The Fighter starred Christian Bale as Micky's brother and Melissa Leo as his mother, and both scooped Oscars for their performances. If the sequel goes ahead they would be expected to reprise their award-winning roles.
The film has been a box office hit, so Mark is hoping to persuade producers to back a follow-up.
He said: "The movie's been such a success, 90 million dollars at the box office already!"
