any actor playing MLK doesn't need to try to impersonate him as far as accent of tone bc cultural practice comes into play. MLK has a very typical Southern black Baptist church voice, almost like a 50's broadcasting voice in that it's not in the accent but the custom of the practice of it. Any person that goes/has grown up in a black church would hear that voice, it's so cultural I love it. The only reason people think MLK's tone/delivery was different is bc we just hear the 'I Have A Dream' speech all throughout our lives on tv.

Costner is not a voice actor. He is simply good at playing Kevin Costner in different situations.

1:20 It looks totally fake to me. The voice is more or less right but overdone and it doesn't match his mimic at all. A good effort though.

Heath Ledger in BM was absolutely ROBBED of his Academy Award. I still think it is one of the most powerful performances I've ever seen in a film (and I've lived for quite a few years).

I had a lot of linguistics classes in school, one of which was Phonology, in which we studied language sounds. Phonology has a wonderful way of classifying properties of a sound into binary values (for example, "m" is +nasal while "s" is -nasal. "V" is +voice while "f" is -voice).

Incredibly, every sound of every word that Heath Ledger spoke was +excruciating and debilitating emotional pain. I didn't even know there was such a property for a language.

Totally agree, the N,Ireland accents he said were just Irish accents.

Brad Pitt was absolutely not attempting a Belfast accent. He is going for an English - Irish Traveller accent. a strange mix of Midlands Irish and English with unique traveller mannerisms. He went for generic mad irishman on this though!!

Gary Oldman and Daniel-Day Lewis are super good with accents.
The Prince of His Own Kingdom
Nic Cage's corny accent actually adds to the movie, given the script was just one-liners and explosion.
Also, Pitt's accent in Inglourious Basterds was *intentionally* bad. I'm surprised of this whenever an American viewer missed it.

Not sure why Hollywood doesn't just hire people with the actual accents. I mean, southern especially... Just go live in the South while you are preparing. We don't all sound like we have 3 brain cells and married our cousins.

in Snatch that is not meant to be a Belfast accent, that is an Irish Traveller accent he is going for.

Brad Pitt's character in Snatch was definitely NOT supposed to be a Belfast accent. He was playing a Traveller, which is entirely different.

The best Truman Capote I have heard is Toby Jones'. It was uncanny. Toby Jones also did Hitchcock to a perfect Tee. Amazing.

Wrong, wrong and wrongity wrong. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt were not doing a Belfast accent at all. Brad Pitt was doing a Pikey gypsy traveller which covers a wide swathe of Ireland and Tom Cruise was doing more of a southeastern Irish accent. Brad Pitt did do a fantastic Belfast accent in the 'Devils Own' in the late 90's. Neither actor was doing a Belfast in these films so if youre going to be specific, the critique isnt even close.

Tom Cruises "Belfast" accent was shite, obviously, but he also tried to imitate the wrong county. Not even close, -2/10
Also, Brad Pitt in snatch is not a Belfast accent, again its more Republic of Ireland. Though the travelling community carry that accent all about Ireland.
