He was British in Dollhouse!

Many of the guest shots he'd be up for in U.S. shows are probably written as American before he's cast, in such a way that it wouldn't make as much sense to change it. Not all are, though. Crossing our fingers he gets a regular gig next pilot season, who knows what might get thrown his way. Thing is, the fact he does such a good American accent opens up tons more work to him, which is a plus. (For him AND us. ;) )

Joss Whedon doesn't seem to mind accents, part of what's to love about him. I know his ability to do the American accent well makes him much more palatable to a larger audience. I know my grandmother can't watch anything with accents. She doesn't understand "those foreigners". (please hear the implied closed-minded derision in that)

I guess I just came of age in the 80's when all the coolest musicians were British and MTV still talked about music so I'm used to it. British accents are a huge bonus. I'm trying to raise my kids on Doctor Who so they end up on the right side of this.

I think you and are are about the same age. ;) And I love a good accent as much as the next person (probably a tiny bit more). Still, I get that there are going to be certain characters where it just makes more sense; just going off the very brief clip here, the House character plays like your outwardly "perfect" upper middle-class WASP (possibly conservative) nuclear family man, so with that context (and what follows), in an American series it seems logical for him to go Yank.

Will totally grant you (per your comment below) that Perception seems like a role, from what little we know now, that might allow for him to use his own accent.

Ah, Midge Ure!
