Good Actor, Bad Performance
When a normally good actor gives a performance that's either phoned-in or feels "off" in some way.
See the Laconic Version. Ham and Cheese, Took the Bad Film Seriously, and What The Hell, Casting Agency? can be seen as subcategories. As the three aforementioned tropes are YMMV, then this one would also be in the category. I don't have any examples myself, but it's something that's been in my head for awhile and I don't really see it elsewhere.
Hello, Unknown Troper. You'll need to get known to lend a hand here.
