the word for the wrong actor

what is the one word substitute for”he or she is the wrong actor for that part or role?

Does misfit or unfit suit the purpose?
I would like to know the noun for the sentence


The usual way to say

Kim is the wrong actor for that part or role.


Kim is miscast in that role.

Lexico has miscast as a verb, above is the adjectival use of the verb.


1 Allot an unsuitable role to (an actor)
he is badly miscast in the romantic lead

Lexico does not classify miscast as a noun and it would be very unusual to say

Kim is a miscast.

as if there is a similarity with misfit, which anyway is not used in this context.
