I am a researcher and I am looking to record the voice of an actor performing a script; then, I would like to film that actor lip-synching to the audio of her own voice.

What would be the best way of recording the audio? Just a small audio recorder?

Also, as far as the method of doing this, do I just play the audio aloud and then mute the audio of the video and lay the original audio track over the video - in editing?

It's called Automated Dialogue Replacement, you can read about it here:

You need the gear & a nice acoustically dry studio, & even then it can be difficult if your acting talent is not that great.

 It's a very detailed process and the talent can get very frustrated.

Depending on the project GET YOUR DIALOG AS YOU GO.

Learn how to EQ dialog frquencies and have ambient sounds or music cover you when/if possible.
