Don Cheadle is stuck with his "terrible" English accent for 'Ocean's Thirteen'.
The actor, who plays London explosives expert Basher Tarr in the heist thriller series, accepts he will be mocked again when the third installment is released this summer.
Don told Britain's The Observer magazine: "This summer, I obviously have to go out and upset all my British friends by repeating what they tell me is a truly terrible London accent in 'Ocean's Thirteen'.
"You know I really worked on that accent. I went to London and I spoke to people. I thought I got to know it, but it turns out I couldn't get it.
"I wanted to change it, but my agent said no. So I'm stuck with this thing and everyone laughs at me."
The 42-year-old star loved reprising his role as Basher Tarr because he got to hang out with friends George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, who he co-starred with in 'Ocean's Eleven' and 'Ocean's Twelve'.
Don revealed: "I had so much fun doing that movie. It's embarrassing to get paid to do it."
