  Yeah, Charlotte.  I think "ham actor" fits well. Since looking at  

 

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/ham_2     it goes:

 

  [C] informal an actor whose style of acting is artificial and old-fashioned, often using movements and emotions that are too obvious.    

    ex: They had some dreadful old ham in the main part.

 

(Definition of ham noun (ACTOR) from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

   In Portuguese "canastrão'' - s.m.  Mau ator, ator sem talento.

   (Dicionário Escolar -da Acad. Brasileira de Letras)

 

----------

   There is, not necessarily playing his part, acting himself. But being unconvincing and not having any alluring "stage presence".
