    Which brings me to: Why isn't Indian-English accent included? Some people find that sexy.

I didn't know this, since he never had an accent in any of the movies I'd seen. I thought I was going to keel over when I heard that accent. Had to go take a shower and some me time.
    Gerard Butler for me. English and a gaelic lilt goes together like butter and hot toast. Imagine being amongst a Scottish regiment full of 6 feet tall men wearing kilts (with knifes in their stocking too) and hearing them all talk with that accent.

    NO WAY IN HELL! I work all day with a company full of Indian-Americans (250 people, 85% Indian-American) and their accent drives me to suicide. It is the worst.

    Actually, the chinese language (Mandarin) is what drives me up the wall the most. I usually like accents and foreign languages, but not in these two situations.
