Actors: Lose Your Boston Accent In Four Weeks
But not every made-in-Massachusetts film is set in Massachusetts. Some, like Paul Blart: Mall Cop, are filmed in Massachusetts, but set in places such as New Jersey. No Boston accents required.
That’s why Boston Casting has started up a Boston Accent Reduction Class. Four weeks and $199 later, you can sound every bit as bland and vaguely midwestern as Tom Cruise!
We listen in on the first day of class.
