Love the Accent?

Toby Young insists in the Guardian that talent is everything and, contrary to Stephen Fry's assertion, Americans will not just fall over for a British accent in a film.
Um, Toby? Did you *see* Love, Actually? Granted, that didn't feature the character, Colin, going for a film role or anything, but I think it's still an apt association. We might laugh because Colin stumbled upon supermodels, but he was going to get laid just because of that accent... just like British actors will always be seen as a superior group.
