When Ocean’s 11 hit the screens in 2001 it was an epic sequel from its previous ones. The film depicts a group of smart buddies who steal a casino with their cool gadgets and without any violence.
Wish they could gang up with this cool gangster which was every fan’s dream. Remembering these Don Cheadle stated in a recent talk show that: “I’m in the trailer with a speech coach going over vowels and consonants and they’re all outside playing basketball and poker and shit.”
Don is amidst other legendary actors in the world who couldn’t spend much time with the vocal guide. This is because his accent for the role Basher was highly criticized and was considered to be a bad accent.
He also added: “From street-to-street someone would come up and say ‘love that character, mate, it’s great,” he says, laughing. “And the next street someone would come up and say ‘don’t ever do that again!” Someone did a u-turn to come to drive by me and cuss me out for the part.”
When asked whether his character was just an American guy who loves Cockney culture. To this Cheadle said: “Sure! Let’s go with that!”. “I get a little cover with that. Now I can say that, ‘he was an American, doing a British accent — you guys missed that?”
In the end, it was just an internet sensation that says that Basher was a “bloody yank.”
The show witnessed him talks about his career, his association with Soderbergh and so on.
