Liked this from the comments:

You HAVE to see him as Teatime in Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather. He makes my skin crawl.

He was perfectly cast as Teatime. However, I don't even remember him in Band of Brothers. He must have played a 'good guy' in that one.

He was in episode 3, playing Albert Blithe, who was playing a shell shock victim. :)

There were a lot of Brits in band of Brothers.

It was an excellent series, I thought, although I came to it a bit late having been put off by the Hanks/Spielberg association.

Is it my imagination, or do HBO employ a lot of British actors in their productions? (Game of Thrones being another example.) :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

TONS. Seems that nearly every HBO series set in the U.S. over the past few years has had Brits, Irish,or Commonwealthers in main roles playing Americans. That includes, for starters:

The Wire: Dominic West (McNulty), Idris Elba (Stringer Bell), AIden Gillen (the Mayor)
True Blood: Anna Paquin (Sookie), Stephen Moyer (Bill), Ryan Kwanten (Jason)

Ironically, the best "British" actor on an HBO series--Peter Dinklage--is actually American! :D

To be fair, Anna Paquin has been doing american films since she was little.

Anna and Ryan are from Daahn Under somewhere. Can't remember if it's Oz/NZ.

I can't see Ryan without thinking of Vinnie. :D

I absolutely, totally DESPISED her in The Piano. Wanted to throttle the little brat's throat. Seeing her all grown up (and nekkid) in True Blood has reduced by antipathy considerably. :D
