Dialect coach Erik Singer once again takes a look at idiolects, better known as the specific way one individual speaks. Did Rami Malek do a good job speaking through prosthetics to become Freddie Mercury? How accurate was Jennifer Lawrence's Long Island accent in Joy? Did Christian Bale nail former Vice President Dick Cheney?

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.

7:55 what is the difference between that and lisping?
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

I love that he's on a nickname basis with Christian Bale. "So Bales actually said that.."

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.

IMHO it seems like I have never seen a good New England accent on screen. They always seem to go Boston or NYC. Or old dominion southern. Always off putting to me, since there are plenty of "Down East" examples out there...

It would be really cool if Erik looked at some old masters of accents/real person impressions like Rich Little - maybe something like that could be included next video? The clip of Rich Little on Carson doing a few politicians at the time of the Watergate scandal, as well as Carson himself, was amazing!!!

i like he talked about inconsistency that real people have. like i talk differently when im excited, my pronunciation will be more correct compared to normal state. and i have like three different hand writing depends on how i hold the pen. cuz when i was young i tried to correct my pen holding position so i end up with multiple writing habits. people are complicate and chaos.
