Who Has a Worse Accent?

As bad -- Don Cheadle (according to the Daily Mail):

Don Cheadle reprises yet again his hilarious Dick van Dyke cockney, though belated realisation of just how bad it is means that he has altered it slightly.

It now sounds like Rolf Harris playing Martin Luther King.

Worse -- Sean Connery (according to Empire Magazine, as cited on the BBC web page):

"Whether he's a Russian sub captain (The Hunt for Red October) or even an English King (First Knight and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves), always that baritone Highland burr remains," says the magazine in its August edition.

Dick van Dyke's much-maligned efforts to imitate an east London cockney accent in Mary Poppins gained him second place in the poll.
