    In retrospect it's pretty crazy to think just how well Lambert did with the English roles. By, like, Mortal Kombat not that many years later he's basically fluent - sure, you pick up on the accent, but he doesn't sound like a guy who only first started speaking the language in his late 20s.

    Haven't seen Greystoke in a long time though - is he totally dialogue-free in that (like not even picking up a few words here and there)? Think that was a couple years before Highlander.

    As far I can recall/understand, yep, not a word said by him in Greystoke, it was thought, his dialect and accent were so 'thick', he wouldn't be understood.

    The above four are accurate descriptions. Despite the contrary of virtually everything involved guaranteeing it fail it somehow worked.

    He had few lines but maybe he was dubbed in English.

    LOL In the spirit of insane Highlander casting, Henry Ian Cusick Chávez can play both MacLeod, and Villa-Lobos Ramírez.:woot:

    He is both Scottish and Hispanic(by way of Spain & Peru), he can speak both English with a Scott accent, and Spanish with a Euro-spanish accent (lived in Spain).
    So just make it a one man movie cast him for all roles:oldrazz:

    Haha, wow, I never even picked up on the Desmond actor being part Spanish. I can see it that you mention it though.

    Here's two things no-one mentions about Highlander: it's virtually a remake of The Terminator....and it's also a metaphor for being homosexual.

    Regarding the latter... can you explain? I’m not sure I follow.

    Director Chad Stahelski Provides an Update on ‘Highlander’; Could Be a Movie or TV Series

    He does make some valid points. Hope this comes to fruition eventually, whether through TV/Film.
