Ok, I wasn't sure where to put this one..

But, it was brought up in another thread, and has got me thinking..

Has anyone noticed that Mark and Donnie for that matter don't have their accents that much anymore?

I mean you can hear it every now and then, but where did there accents go.. I loved listening to them talk..

But, then again that goes back to me being a southerner and loving that Boston accent...

I KNOW, I KNOW!! Evil or Very Mad

I hate that they cover up their accents! i think the boston accent is the sexiest accent around. they probably decided to "lose" them for professional reasons.

i think some people equate boston accents with "blue-collar" tough guys and maybe directors would not be able to see them portraying any character other than that type. to lose the accent broadens their marketability as actors.

i think i remember mark saying that he worked with a voice coach for a long time to help loose his. Crying or Very sad

if you ever rent the dvd of The Basketball Diaries, there is a behind the scenes clip of mark talking about his character. his accent is really thick in this clip. its kind of funny watching it too because mark looks so young and inexperienced! but he looks adorable and sound sooo sexy!
