Michael Rosenbaum talks Lex and Eisenberg

Michael-Rosenbaum-sm03sm Actor Michael Rosenbaum, best known for portraying Lex Luthor in TV’s ‘Smallville,’ has weighed in on the casting of Jesse Eisenberg in the role in the 2016 ‘Man of Steel’ sequel.

Having played a young Lex in 154 episodes of the ‘Superman’ prequel series, Rosenbaum is to date the most prolific live action actor in the role of Superman’s industrialist nemesis; John Shea, who took the role in ‘Lois and Clark’ AKA ‘The New Adventures of Superman,’ shot only 25 episodes.

Nor does Rosenbaum’s association with the DC universe end there, as he also voiced The Flash in 54 episodes of the ‘Justice League’ animated series.

Whilst discussing his feature directorial debut ‘Back in the Day’ with Cinekatz, the subject of Luthor and DC inevitably came up, and Rosenbaum clearly counts himself lucky to be part of that realm, having been the subject of fan campaigns to reprise the role in ‘Batman vs. Superman’ (as we’ll keep informally referring to the film until Warner Bros tell us different).

“I think the most loyal fans are the DC fans… It was amazing to see all of the fans reaching out on Twitter and all of the kind words to get me to be Lex Luthor again. I didn’t do anything, I just sat back and thought it was really sweet. I’m very lucky.”

Asked on his feelings about the divisive casting of Eiesenberg, and whether he had any advice for the new Lex, Rosenbaum’s response was similarly humble.

“First off, I think he’s a really good actor. I don’t think he needs any advice from me, he’ll do his homework. Do it your way. I’m sure Zack [Snyder] has an idea. He cast you for reason.

“Jesse’s a good actor. He’ll do it his own way and that’s the best way. If you can do it your way, if you succeed or fail, you succeed because you are being original. If you’re trying to emulate someone, you’ll always be compared.

“That’s why I didn’t want to be compared during ‘Smallville.’ I didn’t watch any of Gene Hackman as Lex. He’ll be fantastic. Great actor, no problem with it.”

Interestingly, though Rosenbaum remains most popularly associated with Luthor, that isn’t the DC role the actor feels the greatest personal affinity with.

“I would lean toward The Flash kind of guy. The guy who wants to take light of the situation, when everyone is so upset and the world is dying he’s like, “Hey everything’s going to be alright! Let’s go bowling!”… I have some evil in me but I’d be positive for the most part.”

Asked whether he’d been keen to play any other DC character, Rosenbaum clearly doesn’t aim low, replying, “I think I’d be a fantastic Joker. I think I could crush The Joker.”
