Of course there's gotta be at least one person who is a pain to work with. Everyone else nice but him.
I usually try to be optimistic with those kind of people. I've actually become good friends with people that at first came off as lazy, mean, jerks, etc. just gotta really get them engaged and try and find a way to grab and keep their attention. Also giving them room to say something no matter how dumb the idea.
Outside the project, I would also try to get to know them a little and just try and be cool with them, so they felt a bit more mature and responsible about their role in the team and didn't feel outcasted.
