Bad Actor: Hamming it Up

A classic error of the beginning actor is "overselling the event."  The World pretty much agrees that Neymar is a superb soccer player, but a bunch of acting coaches say that he's a pretty bad actor.  His antics after getting stepped on didn't just offend football fans.  I personally hoped that the referee would take out a gun and shoot him, just to put the poor lad out of his misery.  No staged death scene in my memory has been so pathetic or ridiculous.

After a hard tackle, he rolled over so many times that I thought that he might be auditioning for a role as hedgehog croquet ball in Alice in Wonderland.
