Yes. To echo what was being said upthread, Brooks is a highly eccentric person, and although the emotional scenes are often overwrought, for the most part he plays the character as extremely level headed, considered and commanding of respect, and he does a great job of it.

I love Avery's acting. What a bland world we would live in if every actor had the same style.
Indeed.
