Lawrence is trash? What else is new. She's literally just playing herself, there was absolutely nothing convincing about that. She probably sucked off Harvey to get that role just like hunger games.

Do a Gary Oldman special episode!
Chekhov's Secret Serf
This video was tailor-made for me. I used to stammer when I was nervous about something. It was suggested to me that I study the way other people speak. All the things you talk about as a dialect coach, are very similar to Speech therapy.

I'd like Erik Singer to break down Matthew McConaughey's accent, and people who have more successfully done impressions of him, like Kate Hudson, that's always funny.

The Randy Malek guy could barely hold the denture in,he was constantly sucking it in and trying not to drool. That was really distracting,i kept laughing throughout the movie,because i couldnt get over the MOUTH lol.

Your'e right. lol. His Freddie was kind of exaggerated, more so than probably was needed. Freddie's real voice was somewhat softer, more relaxed. Unfortunately Malek reminded me more of "Austin Powers" doing Freddie! lol.

I'm curious though, even with all the practice, if the actors consciously change their accent the whole time or if the accent change comes naturally

As a sibling of an Autistic sister, i’ve also loved the Temple Grandin performance because of how well she captured her expressive nature.

Think JD Washington was using the stereotypical white person way when speaking on phone for appearance and less suspicion. He was trying to portray a white guy instead of himself. If it was opposite and a white actor was trying to portray a black speaker then he would be trying a stereotypical urban pattern.

Ok, this guy is absolutely fantastic at explaining this subject. Meaning he has a profound understanding of the subject matter, this is really impressive.
Also, Gary Oldman is a BEAST with his performances

After this video I feel I can play Nixon now, even though I have a very high pitched female voice, but I got this! xD

More please!!! I love this guy and every episode he does in this series. Suggestions: Jodie Comer's various accents in Killing Eve, John Lithgow's Winston Churchill, Jean Hagen in Singin' in the Rain (love that one, especially as they included an Easter Egg of her real voice and accent in the movie), Emma Thompson doing the various accents she has over the years - actually, you could do an entire episode on just Emma Thompson. Also, for interest, the way the cast of women playing Amazons all adopted Gal Gadot's Israeli accent to ensure consistency in Wonder Woman.

CB’s Cheney, I’ve ever seen a better impersonation. Julianne Moore with Sarah Palin and Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles came close.

Kind of disappointed that more music biopics like Walk The Line and Ray weren't featured, but at 25+ minutes this is long enough. I do hope there will be a follow up with with a 2nd video about this more music focused.
