Did anyone else burst out laughing at Eric Bana's delivery of that line. (in a good way)

Nero says it with the tone you would expect someone at a company picnic to introduce themselves, "Hey Christopher! I'm Nero. I work in accounting."

I don't know, I just loved that delivery. For some reason it just stuck out to me.
Nope, totally destroyed any potential sense of menace or threat Nero might have had. I actually found myself thinking it must be a gag-reel clip that somehow accidentally got spliced into the movie...

I mean, I like the idea that he's a blue-collar guy who just wants to talk man to man with no pretension, but his tone of voice is too sarcastically bright and chirpy for that.
