Yes, I must admit that Ryan O'Neil gave me more than a moments hesitation, but the rest of it looks so gorgeous, I just think I'll have to risk it :p .

although o neil is not up to the acting task, his performance doesnt take away from the film (something common to kubrick films). you get the feeling that kubrick got saddled with oniel by the studio and made due as best he could. what i can say is that oniel is "good enough" for the part.
