Watch the latest The Santa Incident Clip (06-The Santa Incident) on IMDb
Oh my god, he’s doing an abysmal cowboy accent in this, I’m so happy
(he’s in clips 6 and 7, by the way)
Oh, sweet baby Jesus, what is that accent he is trying for?
hahaha its like in the audition the producers were like. “McE , this character is a Texan———can you do a southern accent?” and he was like “…sure.” but seriously though why would anyone take that voice of his and change it on purpose?
Oh, one last thing. The Sunday Mirror “Radar” feature for Feb. 2004 has the following: “Actor Michael McElhatton, aka Rats from the flats, enjoying a coffee in Dublin shop Avoca with a stunning lady….”
Ah, that can mean so many things, and so exactly nothing :p Anyway, the other times he’s showed up in this feature he was: 1) hanging with friends somewhere, 2) “wolfing” down pizza, and 3) attending a Blur concert (<3).
ok 1 A BLUR CONCERT *screams and flails my arms*
and 2, “having coffee with a stunning lady” (hope for the sexual preference crowd-aka me)
"I’ll never play the prince," says McElhatton evenly and without regret. "Maybe his dad. But I can live with that. I don’t have burning ambitions. My ambition, such as it is, is not to get bored. Casting is so arbitrary: maybe you’ll get it, maybe you won’t. There’s only a handful of roles you’d give your eye teeth to do.
Most of them I could take or leave.”
An overnight success in his mid-thirties as a result of Paths to Freedom, the mock-documentary series that he co-wrote and in which he played the rapping former convict Rats, the 42-year-old McElhatton has slipped into middle age with little drama, much less a midlife crisis. “I suppose I am middle-aged,” he says. “Of course I don’t feel it. You never do, do you? I thought middle age didn’t happen these days until you’re 49. Reassessing my life? A little.”
