    Hugh Jackman could easily be Canadian, since the ethnic background of Australia is similar to that of Canada.

    I think Johnny Depp doesn't look Italian:



    Character name: Donnie Brasco
    Character ethnicity: Italian
    Actor name: Johnny Depp.
    Actor Ethnicity: Irish/Native American
    Movie: Donnie Brasco

    What do the Italians think about it?

    Positive. Streep always looked quite Polish to me, Eastwood young didnt but in old age can pass, Brando surprisingly ok, and Sturgess matches very well.
