James Gunn has revealed that Smallville actor Michael Rosenbaum will play a significant role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (out May 5). Gunn also teased the characters played by both Rosenbaum and Sylvester Stallone. The director made the announcement during an appearance on The Adam Carolla Show podcast.
“We do have a couple of characters who are very important to the Marvel universe, who are going to make their debut in Guardians Vol. 2, that people don’t know about,” said Gunn. “And Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters… But I will say that my friend Michael Rosenbaum also has a pretty decent role in the movie as well and it sort of works in tandem with Sly’s character.”
Rosenbaum subsequently tweeted about Gunn’s announcement. “I kept yapper shut 4 a year but can finally say what James Gunn announced on Adam Carolla,” he wrote. “I’m in freaking Guardians.”
Rosenbaum played Lex Luthor on Smallville and previously worked with the Guardians director on James Gunn’s PG Porn, a web series created by Gunn and his two brothers, Sean and Brian.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released May 5.

The media is invited to the team’s morning skate, where Rosenbaum will be joining them on the ice. The practice will be from 10-11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Ford Center. Interviews with Rosenbaum and players will be made available.

The Bakersfield Condors and Ontario Reign are set to head outdoors for the Condorstown Outdoor Classic on Jan. 7, but it’d be hard to blame hockey-heads if they were more excited for the NHL Alumni-Celebrity game that will take place the day prior.
It was announced in late-November that the contest, which will feature greats from the parent teams of both AHL clubs, would be captained by Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille, with ‘The Great One’ leading the Condors in the head-to-head against ‘Lucky Luc’ and the Reign group.
Gretzky and Robitaille won’t be the only Hall of Famers who make their way to Bakersfield for the outing, though, as they’ll be joined by 2014 Hall of Fame inductee Rob Blake and 2008 inductee and six-time Stanley Cup champion Glenn Anderson, who will suit up for the Condors.
The sheer number of Stanley Cup titles on the Condors/Oilers roster is overwhelming, too. Beyond Gretzky and Anderson, who have a combined 10 championships, there are another 18 Cup rings to go around. That includes six-time champion Kevin Lowe, four-time winners Craig MacTavish and Duane Sutter and two-time champions Dave Semenko and Kelly Buchberger.
The Reign alumni won’t have near the championship pedigree in the outdoor game, boasting only four Stanley Cup winners on their roster. That includes Robitaille, Blake, Sean O’Donnell and Tomas Sandstrom.
Other notables on the rosters include Mike Comrie, who will be skating with the Condors, and Bernie Nicholls, Nelson Emerson, Kyle Calder, Jaroslav Modry and Jamie Storr, all of whom will be dressing for the Reign.
There are also several notables suiting up in the contest who’ve never suited up for either team, but have made the cut as part of the ‘celebrity’ portion of the game. For the Oilers, the notables include Wayne’s son Ty Gretzky and David Pelletier, the pairs figure skater who won gold at the 2002 Olympics. The Kings will have a few more non-alumni suiting up, including Bones star David Boreanaz, Smallville’s Michael Rosenbaum and E! News’ Ken Baker.
The outdoor games will both take place at Bakersfield College’s Memorial Stadium, with the potential for 19,000 fans to be in attendance. Even if the stadium is sold out, it will be far from the most-attended in AHL history. The 2012 AHL Outdoor Classic between the Adirondack Phantoms and Hershey Bears drew an announced attendance of more than 45,000 fans to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

TV Land continues its transformation toward single-camera, edgier comedy with 10-episode series orders to both of its pilots: Impastor starring Michael Rosenbaum and Teachers, topined by improv group the Katydids on whose web series the series is based. Both are single-camera and will premiere in 2015. While TV Land, once known as home for classic sitcoms, kicked off its original efforts with multi-camera series, single-camera comedies now outnumber traditional sitcoms on the network’s original slate. The streak started with a series order to the single-camera Jennifer Falls in January, which has been followed by series pickups of only filmed comedies — Younger, the Jim Gaffigan show and now Impastor and Teachers. The network has only three multi-camera original comedies on the air: Hot In Cleveland, spinoff The Soul Man and The Exes.
“Impastor and Teachers are perfect examples of the type of comedies we’re looking for as TV Land evolves its original series – innovative, unconventional, and hilariously funny for an audience that enjoys smart humor with a hint of heart,” said TV Land President Larry W. Jones.
Impastor, from Christopher Vane stars Michael Rosenbaum, Sara Rue, Aimee Garcia, Mircea Monroe, Mike Kosinski, and David Rasche. It revolves around Buddy Dobbs (Rosenbaum), a gambling, pot-smoking slacker on the run from a loan shark who steals a man’s identity and ends up posing as the new gay pastor in a small, tightknit town. Although he’s tempted to immediately run off with the pastor’s money, Buddy has a change of heart when he realizes that the people there, including his prim church assistant Dora (Rue), actually like this new and semi-improved alter ego — and he kind of likes them back. Impastor is executive produced by Vane and Rosenbaum, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. Rob Greenberg directed the pilot.
