Back in November of last year, Wired uploaded one of their most interesting videos. They had dialect coach Erik Singer critique the accents of some of Hollywood’s biggest names. He looked at Will Smith’s accent in Concussion, Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote, and several other actors.
If you still haven’t watched the video, you can check it out at the top of this page. It’s incredibly fascinating, which is why we are so glad they brought Erik back to break down more accents/impressions.
Wired describes their latest video:
“Dialect coach Erik Singer takes a look at idiolects, better known as the specific way one individual speaks. To best break down this concept, Erik analyzes some actors playing real people. Just how close was Jamie Foxx’s Ray Charles? What about Cate Blanchett’s portrayal of Bob Dylan? Is Daniel Day-Lewis’ Lincoln accurate?”
It’s Wednesday, and you all are figuring out how you’re gonna make it two more days at work, right? We understand, and we are here to help.

They’ve had some huge names participate in this, including, Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, Amy Poehler, Al Gore, Steve Carell, Morgan Freeman, and many more.
This series is 10x better than a standard interview, where the stars must answer the same, boring questions about their movie over and over again.
