It's not a mystery. It's called the Atlantic or Mid-Atlantic accent -- a blend of standard American and RP (British). It's a common thing for stage actors to pick up for their accent case, I recently used it playing a Wall Street Executive in a show set in the 30's. I describe it to those not familiar with it by "Think of Thurston Howell."
