Consider a hyper, even if you're trying to match something that for some reason was boomed with a gun.
You have issues with actors actually “over projecting”?
I feel it is mostly the reverse getting them to project enough. Interesting.

As for mic choice and distance the room is the boss when it comes to adr. Unless you have a large well designed great sounding adr stage (I have yet to see one in person that ticks all my boxes) then this will be true IMO.
