    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

    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

    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.

    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...
