There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Michael will return to Smallville’s last season or not. As a fan of Lex Luthor would love Michael to return and reprise his role in the last series of one of my favourite TV shows. As a fan of Michael Rosenbaum I want to see him spread his wings he has a new TV series saved by zeroes and breaking in, a short film Ghild and a horror film coming our way soon and I would love these opportunities to be a fresh start. I go back and forth all the time and from talking to other fans I see I am not alone in this.
However the show’s producers as well as Tom Welling have publically been reaching out to Michael and trying to get him to return. Though recently we heard that Kristin Kreuk definitely will not reprise her role as lana lang we now hear that Welling and the Smallville producers are “cautiously optimistic” about his return as Lex Luthor.
With filming conflicts and potential problems like the distance to where they film Smallville it may be hard to secure Michael’s return but along with the Smallville cast and crew we can be ‘cautiously optimistic’ to see the best Lex Luthor ever back on our screens.
Michael will be part of a hockey game for charity at this year’s Sundance film festival the game takes place Sunday, January 23, 2011 at the Park City Ice Arena, participants of this year’s shootout include NHL players Luc Robitaille, Joe Sakic, Rob Blake, Derek Armstrong, Ian Laperriere, Marty McSorley, Glen Murray, Mathieu Schneider along with celebrities Michael Vartan , Michael Rosenbaum, Jason Thompson, Steven R. McQueen, Alan Thicke, Andie MacDowell, Ryne Sanborn, Treat Williams, and Tom Bernard. Olympic Speed Skater Allison Baver and the first and only woman to play an exhibition game in the NHL, goalie Manon Rhéaume are also scheduled to appear.
Michael Rosenbaum could be promoted to a recurring role on new Fox comedy Breaking In.
The former Smallville star makes a brief appearance in the show’s first episode as Dutch, who becomes involved in a love triangle with Melanie (Odette Yustman) and Cameron (Bret Harrison).
Executive producer Doug Robinson told TVLine: “[Rosenbaum] will probably do at least these six [episodes] that we’re doing [beyond the pilot].”
He added that the character could become a permanent fixture in the office run by Christian Slater’s character Oz.
“We’re thinking about bringing Dutch in the office and making him a part of the team,” he confirmed. “[We’ll] maybe play out that triangle a little bit more.”
The executive producers of Smallville previously revealed that they are struggling in their attempts to convince Rosenbaum to reprise his old role as Lex Luthor.
Breaking In premieres April 6 on Fox.
While Smallville viewers continue to hope that Michael Rosenbaum will reprise the role of Lex Luthor sometime before the CW series signs off forever, there’s good news nonetheless for Rosie’s biggest fans.
TVLine has confirmed that the midseason Fox comedy Breaking In has big plans for Rosenbaum’s character, a crafty peddler of “clean urine” who figures into a potential romantic triangle with the top-shelf computer hackers played by Odette Yustman (Brothers & Sisters) and Bret Harrison (V).
Though not a series regular, Rosenbaum “will probably do at least these six [episodes] that we’re doing [beyond the pilot],” Breaking In exec producer Doug Robinson told me on Tuesday at the TCA winter press tour.
The Smallville alum made quite the impression on the Breaking In team with his cameo in the season premiere. Yustman touted her on-screen beau as a “genius” during the show’s TCA panel, while Robinson called the actor “great.”
In fact, with production on the next six episodes set to start in late February in Los Angeles, Robinson said, “We’re thinking about bringing Dutch into the office and making him a part of the team [fronted by Christian Slater], and maybe play out that triangle a little bit more.”
The silver lining for Smallville fans? Though Rosie has yet to sign off on an encore, sources tell me the show continues to pursue him.
Fox’s Breaking In premieres Wednesday, April 6.

On the 17th of this month MRO has been a year online and to celebrate this I decided to get a new layout! Common practice I hear you cry but this time I wanted to combine this wish a chance to donate to a great charity Paws 4 a cause which is the yearly Ian Somerhalder birthday project run by Natalie from The vampire diaries: Blood falls A lot of fansites do a scrapbook or something for the celebrities birthday but she wanted to do more and after a lot of research came across St. Tammy humane society an animal shelter that Ian has been adopting his dogs from for years. This is a wonderful charity and thought up by a very ambitious and caring fan of one of MR’s friends. So if you have a wordpress blog you can go to Paws 4 a cause and donate a minimum of $10 and get an awesome layout like this one!
Well its January 2011 and on the 17th Michael Rosenbaum Online is one year online! The cover for this month reflects that and MR has so much going on this year I couldn’t fit it all on the picture!
So if Michael were to release an official calendar next year what sort of photos would you like to see?
Now that we are in a new year and in fact a new decade I realise what is missing from my life…an official Michael Rosenbaum calendar! Now how awsome would it be to have a calendar every month with a new official glossy photo of MR? We need one for 2012! I really think he needs to remedy this with maybe photos of him in 12 of his favourite 80s band Tshirts? Or his favourite sports? What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts here…
