What's wrong with him? He's a great actor would have been much more qualified to play such a significant role than Hayden Christensen. Yeah Romeo and Juliet wasn't great and I'm not really big on Titanic, but you'd be hard put to make the case he's a bad actor on any grounds besides personal preference.
Anakin should have been cast in the Phantom Menace, allowing the actor more time to grow and embrace the role, before having to introduce subtleties of Vader into his performance. Hayden was not given this comfort and given his relative lack of experience and Georges reputation of not being an "actors director" his performance suffered as a result. I really feel bad for him too, he does a pretty good job in Awake and he really hasn't gotten many roles since.
