Last night, Alex and I were riveted by this video of dialect coach Erik Singer analyzing the accents of 32 actors in movies. He breaks down their accents and points out where they could have improved. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt get slammed, but Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman are basically geniuses. Really fascinating!

P.S. The worst upstairs neighbors.
