Rosenbaum takes on writing and directing
“Back in the Day” is a raunchy comedy about a guy trying to get out of a rut by reliving his glory days at his high school reunion. The story is loosely based on Rosenbaum’s friends in Newburgh, Ind., where he grew up. “Back in the Day” was filmed in Newburgh and Evansville, Ind., and includes locations at his former high school and hangouts.
Rosenbaum came to WKU on a scholarship and graduated in 1995. He has steadily built a résumé as an actor, including his critically acclaimed role as Lex Luther on “Smallville.”
He continues to return to WKU to inspire others.
Included in the cast of “Back in the Day,” playing the younger version of one of his buddies is Jonathan Stone. Stone, who grew up in Clarksville, Tenn., moved to Bowling Green as a teen and graduated from Greenwood High School.
He attended WKU on the same scholarship Rosenbaum was awarded and met Rosenbaum on one of his visits. Stone is continuing his studies at WKU, where he was recently nominated as best actor for his role in “Double” at WKU’s Film Fest. He is active in local theater.
