Ah, I worked on this last year. I remember that the CLT balance finally shifted away from the accented IMDb-mined variant to Obba Babatunde on September 26 (on that day there were 89 "e" titles vs. 88 "é" ones). Credits I can confirm:

Obba Babatunde:
- After the Sunset
- Boston Legal: Season Four
- Friends: The Complete Third Season
- Married to the Mob
- Multiplicity
- Undercover Blues

I my collection I have and just checked the discs of:
Necronomicon - NO accent
How High - with accent
John Q. - NO aceent
Tales from the Crypt Season 4, Disc 2, ep. 10 Maniac at Large - NO accent
Also note for some reason my Tales season 4 has a full cast list for the parent boxset as well as the discs themselves, so this would cover all Tales from the Crypt entries (I have all other seasons and he's not in any other episodes).

I had him with accent for common, but just changed that. I can easily see where this is going, and it's just another stupid imdb-cloned accent that ever made it common. In reality, it's not common at all, although I'm impressed I actually have one title with the accent proving they aren't all wrong.

Caution! The cast member was verified with the release for a RC2 locality.
