That's the movie I was trying to think of! Yeah. He has this quality about him in these two movies in particular where I just wanna tell him,"look, I know you mean well, in your way, but you really are an asshole."

Something about his speech is also really good for technical, medical jargon. All the consonants maybe, the way they play off the resonance in his nose and the clicking of his teeth.

I'm not good with placing accents but something about the Northeastern feel of the way he talks gives his words extra credibility. I hear education and culture in a way few actors come across anymore. Christopher Plummer is another that comes to mind, regardless of what sort of accent he's affecting for a particular role.
