Sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to land a role.

“You pretended to be an Englishman to get a role in a film, and I want to say on behalf of my country, how dare you,” Corden said.

Levi explained, “When I was in Tangled for Disney which is such an incredible film, such an incredible experience, but yeah, they thought Flynn Ryder, the role that I ultimately played. They wanted him to have an English accent and they wouldn’t even see American actors.”


Amazingly, his gambit worked perfectly.

“And  then they gave me the job — based on my English accent,” Levi said. “And then later, they said, ‘You know what? I think we’re going to do it with an American accent. Can you do that?’ I’m not even kidding. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I think I can do that.’”
