9 movie mumblers who still have clearer diction than Bane


4th January 2011

Debate is STILL ongoing on whether or not Christopher Nolan has cleaned up Bane's incomprehensible dialogue in The Dark Knight Rises: some say new scenes are crisper, others say he's more mumbly than ever. One thing is for sure, the following nine guys - even with their very different speech impediments - are still easier to follow than Bane.

Mumbles from Dick Tracy

Bertie from The King's Speech

Fenster from The Usual Suspects

Rooster Cogburn from True Grit

B.A. Baracus from The A-Team

The jailers from Monty Python's Life Of Brian

Jonah Hex from Jonah Hex

Beaker from The Muppets

The teacher from Charlie Brown

Sassen frassen rassen.

EXCITING UPDATE: Reader 'MarkShek' pointed out that we forgot Brad Pitt's mumbling Mickey from Snatch. In true Radio 1 DJ style, this one goes out to you, MarkShek! (*pushes giant lever for some reason*)

EVEN MORE EXCITING UPDATE: I forgot this one too.

THE MOST EXCITING UPDATE EVER: Couldn't let a feature on speech impediments go by without including this. Wow, I really didn't think this through when I wrote it.
