Default Re: Character Accents: Should they be used?

I don't see why accents shouldn't be used. There are characters that have distinct dialogue due to their background - Gambit, for example - and there's no real reason to make them more generic. I can understand Colossus' American accent in X2 and X3 as, let's face it, how easy is it to find a guy big enough to portray him that is capable of a convincing Russian accent? (Unless you actually hire an English-speaking Russian that's about 6 foot 7/8, obviously.) But unless there's actually a reason for it, why shouldn't Gambit, to use him as an example again, be Cajun?
