  1. As for Pitt's Traveler accent in Snatch—the commenters are right, of course. I had always thought it was a Traveler accent (not one I'm very familiar with), but Brendan Gunn (Pitt's dialect coach on the film) has said they started by working on (and in!) Belfast. At a certain point that shifted, obviously. Blame it on a bit of careless, over-hasty research on my part.

  2. Dr MLKs voice power almost blew my eardrums out….lol. A bit of a change in vocal volume. But still, he has a strong voice for good reason.

  3. For Heath ledger as the joker in the dark knight that wasn’t actually his voice it was and Italian guys who dubbed his voice so heaths voice never was in the movie

  4. Thank you for explaining the russian accent because im russian and both of my parents are and whenever they speak english they sound nothing like that dude that was the actor.

  5. I've watched this video and the other two by Singer at least a couple dozen times each. I've always found one thing about this particular video odd in an otherwise awesome video. The voice that Heath Ledger used for creating the Joker is called a "New York accent" when there's clearly nothing "Noo Yahkee" about it. Ledger himself already said that he was simply evoking the natural voice of the singer Tom Waits.

  6. If i ever become famous, good luck imitating my voice. I literally sound different every day, and just all around suck at talking.

  7. This is so interesting! But I would like you to pick out a whole scentence that you would like to improve, and say it correctly yourself, for us to really hear the difference of the whole sentence and not just a few chosen words. Otherwise a great video!

  8. So there is a number of distinct southern accents. Mts of NC is MUCH different then anywhere else for instance. id love to see the south broken down further.
