>> YES JAMES YOU'RE KNOWN FOR A
LOT OF PEOPLE FOR PLAYING LOTS OF VILLAINS. DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE VARIOUS
NATIONALITIES? GERMAN, RUSSIAN, HUNGARIAN? IS IT EASY FOR TO YOU TUNE INTO
ALL OF THOSE ACCENTS? >> YES. >> YOU'RE AN EXTRAORDINARY
ACTOR! >> I CAME IN A LUCKY TIME. GOING BACK TO THE LATE 80'S, ALL
THE MINORITIES HAD BEEN OUTSIDE THE GATES OF BIG MOVIE COMPANIES
SAYING DON'T PORTRAY US AS VILLAINS, RAPISTS OR MURDERERS,
AND THE GUYS UP THERE, YOU KNOW IN SUITS, WELL, LET'S GET BACK
TO THE GERMANS AND THE EVIL SOVIET UNION GUYS.

>> James: YEAH. >> SO HERE COMES PETER TO
HOLLYWOOD. THEY'RE LIKE, CAN HE DO A
HUNGARIAN ACCENT? OH YEAH. AND I KNOW THERE'S ONLY ONE LINE
IN AMERICAN MOVIES, IT'S WHEN KEANU COMES TO RUSSIA. AND I'M RUSSIAN. THEN WE SWITCH TO ENGLISH. DO YOU WANT TO SEE THE LAB? >> YEAH. YEAH. >> THAT'S WHY I'M HERE FOR. OK. >> James: HA-HA. >> WAIT. WAIT. WAIT. WAIT. WAIT. WAIT. SO WERE YOU ACTUALLY DOING THE
ACCENT? >> NO. THEY DON'T KNOW. THEY DON'T KNOW. [ LAUGHTER ]
THEY DON'T KNOW SERBIA FROM SENEGAL. JAMES YOU'RE SAYING THE MOVIE
EXECUTIVES DON'T KNOW. THEY'LL GO, CAN YOU DO SERBIAN? YOU SAY, SURE. AND THEN YOU DO ANOTHER ACCENT? >> OH YEAH. YOU'RE BORN IN EUROPE, YOU'RE
SUPPOSED TO KNOW ALL THE LANGUAGES OF EUROPE. >> James: RIGHT. WELL, I HAVE TO SAY IT SERVES
