“I’m not fairly comfortable acting in my accent,” Cody admitted to TV Line. “So it was very strange for me to use my own accent.”

He continued, “I don’t have Twitter, but I’ve seen feedback from people within the company who are sending me little tweets like, ‘He should stick with his plain white-boy American accent’ and, ‘Who does this Harvard grad think he is trying to do an Australian accent? He’s not Meryl Streep!’ I’m like, ‘You all need to calm down.’”
