whenever i'm watching Three Kings and hear Jonze say "f***ing crazy" i recognize that it's kind of a "strange" accent. where is he coming from? can anyone tell me?

thank you!!

You didn't think that was his real accent did you? lol Spike's from Maryland. As for TK and Conrad Vig - he was supposed to be a southern hill billy, thus the accent.

i'm not from the US, so i don't know what's his real accent or what country that movie-accent belongs to.

so he just talked like that for the movie?

Yup, its called acting. Couldn't give you a specific state as I'm not from the area, but I think its a stereotypical/generic accent of people living in the Appalachian/Smokey Mountains of the Southern States of the US.

Hi Kiddo. I am from England but now live in the US. Having spent 6 months in Alabama (southern state in America) It is very easy to pick the accent up! Spike Jonze was great in Three Kings, voice and all You're from Austria! I spent many a happy holiday skiing there

i hate skiing *g* but i love Three Kings. it's not a typical action movie i think. in a typical action movie they'd say that wars are cool. this movie is so different and it's great!
