Why are so many foreign born actors playing Americans on U.S. tv currently?
Are there not enough roles in there home countries or are American actors really that bad? lol

I heard that one of the reasons was that they were cheaper, and less interested in becoming a 'star' - especially when casting shows with an 'ensemble' cast like The Wire.
Also I would imagine that there are a lot more roles in the US compared to say the UK.Source(s): Article on BBC news website a few weeks back.

That's funny because within our borders foreigners really are replacing Americans.
