Overrated Film Actors, No. 6

Ryan O'Neal

I disagree on two grounds:

1) How is he overrated? Who ever said the guy could act? And have they seen Barry Lyndon?

2) He is one of those wooden actors (a cigar-store Indian emotes more) for whom just the right project comes along and he's used perfectly. Known as KRMS (or Keanu Reeves Matrix Scenario), it happened twice that I can think of: What's Up Doc? and Paper Moon. He rose to the challenges of being less annoying than Barbra Streisand and convincingly playing Tatum O'Neal's father.
