Pet peeve: fiction that uses foreign accents as a way to make villains stand out.

Dammit, Jim, they're foreign, not necessarily criminal thugs.

German accent: evil scientist

Russian accent: evil spy

Spanish accent: evil drug lord

French accent: evil seductress

I kind of wonder if these foreign stereotypes really are that prevalent in fiction or if I'm just listing my own prejudices.

@eldang @JordiGH Nah, evil businessman, but the particular business depends on what English accent

@matias93 @eldang @JordiGH I think it's the posh ones that are more stereotypically evil

@JordiGH no, this is the cast list for a James Bond movie, those stereotypes really are out there
