The accent of Leonardo DiCaprio as Danny Archer sounded different in the Blood Diamond Film. I have seen quite a good number of Hollywood movies, so I have become familiar with their accents. When I heard Danny speak in Blood Diamond, it seemed different to me. For example, he says "bru" for "bro" and "Are you craze" instead of "crazy" to Commander Zero. He also uses of "huh" with every sentence. In fact, he pronounces his name as "Aurchor" for "Archer". All of this sounded different to me. I am not sure if I am right about the accent thing, but if I am correct, why is it so? Danny said "He belongs to Rhodesia". So as he is from Rhodesia, was his pronunciation changed in the movie for the sake of the character? I already looked around a bit, but didn't find any explanation.
Yes, he was trying to sound like someone from Rhodesia.
