    Early Miller: Birth of A Playwright

    Bruce Weber

    May 2, 2002: Unthreateningly handsome, with cornfed brawn, a polite-to-old-ladies manner and an earnest bleat in the voice, the young actor Chris O'Donnell certainly has the traditional mien of the All-American boy. He's a natural for the lead role in ''The Man Who Had All the Luck,'' Arthur Miller's 1940 play, subtitled ''A Fable,'' about America and the burdens of unmitigated good fortune, which opened in a stirring and rich revival last night on Broadway at the American Airlines Theater. I mean, he's really a natural. Known for playing sidekicks in popular films -- he was Robin in two of the ''Batman'' movies, and he starred with Al Pacino in ''Scent of a Woman'' -- Mr. O'Donnell had never appeared onstage before ''The Man Who Had All the Luck'' was produced last summer at the Williamstown Theater Festival.
