Toni Collette's Watchlist: Which Classic Show Helped Her Perfect an American Accent?
Hostages star Toni Collette credits The Brady Bunch with helping her to perfect her American accent.
"Back in Australia we have a lot of American television programs, which is probably why I 'm OK at doing an American accent — I think it's from watching too much TV," Collette tells us in her celebrity Watchlist video. "One of them was The Brady Brunch. Every afternoon after school, "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha."

Collette admits she has a diverse taste in television that includes the original Danish version of The Bridge as well as Friday Night Lights.
"My goodness I absolutely love that show," she says of the NBC football drama. "I had my second child so I was somewhat hormonal, but I did a lot of crying and cheering. It was such a beautiful community."
