Stephen Fry on accents

He's written a column (sadly it doesn't seem to be online) suggesting that Americans have gone a bit over-the-top about British accents.

The Telegraph report on this and here a Guardian columnist with his take - suggesting Stephen might be jealous of his old comedy partner, Hugh Laurie!

That's baloney, & makes no sense:
A. Hugh is playing "American" (brilliantly) so viewers aren't getting blown away by his performance because of his "accent."
B. Go to http://www.fox.com/house/
look on the right side of the screen. Currently listed as #3 is a video interview of Fry talking about how he has always known how talented Hugh was, and now the rest of the world is finally getting to see it.
