Playing a character who's not like you

Yes, I've got another question. :)

Does anyone have any advice that a GM can give a player who's trying to play a character that's radically different from himself? I have a player in my tabletop game who wants to play a subtle, manipulative, scheming character, but the player himself is as subtle as the proverbial brick - and he plays his character exactly the same way (essentially, he acts like a bull in a china shop OOC *and* IC). While I applaud his attempts to try something new, some of the other players and I agree that it's getting almost painful to watch him try to be subtle IC and fail miserably - and then wonder why his character isn't the way he envisioned it.
