Michael for Lex in Man of Steel 2

Michael-Rosenbaum-sm03sm With the sequel to “Man of Steel” already greenlit and entering the planning stages, websites are already publishing their “who should play Lex Luthor” lists (ours is probably coming any day now). One such site is Buzz Focus, whose list got a little bit of a celebrity spotlight.


Yeah, that’s Michael Rosenbaum, the actor who portrayed Lex Luthor on the TV series “Smallville” for seven years. Judging by that tweet, he wouldn’t mind another go at the maniacal mastermind. He even takes a joking shot at fan favorite Luthor, Bryan Cranston, who has shown that he’s capable of unrelenting intensity and villainous focus on his show “Breaking Bad.”

But would Warner Bros. ever entertain the notion of casting Rosenbaum? It would be cool, to see the same actor offer up a different interpretation of the same character, stuffed inside of a new, larger universe. The biggest drawback, though, is that a lot of people wouldn’t be able to separate the “Man of Steel” sequel from “Smallville,” probably leading to a lot of unneeded confusion.

The rest of Buzz Focus’ list is interesting, particularly their inclusion of Jon Hamm and Joaquin Phoenix. Either of those guys would own as Lex Luthor. But let’s not forget the old rumors that Bradley Cooper would shave his head and tussle with Superman. At this point, with “Man of Steel 2” so early in development, anything is possible.

Michael Rosenbaum Also in the Running for Guardians of the Galaxy Lead

Michael Rosenbaum is no stranger to superheroes having provided the voice for The Flash in the Justice League, Teen Titans, and Static Shock cartoons, Deadman in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and playing Lex Luthor in over 150 episodes on the very successful CW series Smallville. But it seems Rosenbaum could make the leap to Marvel as he tweeted this message yesterday:


Rosenbaum isn’t the only new name to be added to the potential Peter Quill list as Joseph Gordon-Levitt is said to be on the short list of actors which also includes Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas) and Zachary Levi (“Chuck”).
The Quill character is likely to be the central protagonist of the film. Raised on Earth, Quill learns that his father was from outer space and is drawn into an intergalactic conflict that eventually leads to him becoming the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Also said to be on the movie team’s roster are the characters Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Racoon and Gamora. Check back for casting details on those roles as they emerge.

Michael to direct and star in movie about his home town

mro Michael Rosenbaum, a 1990 Castle High School graduate, will be directing and starring in a movie he wrote that takes place mostly in Newburgh and Evansville. Filming will begin early next year.

“I’m looking forward to showing the world what it was like growing up in Indiana,” Rosenbaum said. “It’s the foundation of who I am today.”

He did not want to reveal too many plot details, however.

“It’s about reliving the glory days,” Rosenbaum said.

He was honored at halftime of the Memorial at Castle football game on Friday night. Castle gave him a hockey jersey and other items to show support for his acting career and appreciation for his continued support of the school.

“It’s exciting to be honored by my old high school,” Rosenbaum said. “Andy Byers is a wonderful principal, and the school is even more beautiful than I remember.”

Rosenbaum, probably best known for his portrayal of Lex Luthor in the long-running CW TV series, “Smallville,” recently completed a movie due out this spring with Bradley Cooper and Kristen Bell.

In the spring, Rosenbaum appeared in the new Fox sitcom, “Breaking In,” starring Christian Slater. Although it was on the verge of cancellation, Fox renewed the half-hour series and was expected to order 13 new episodes. However, Rosenbaum has not made any decision whether he will return to the show.

Rosenbaum and his younger brother, Eric, joined forces to create “ROSE and BOMB Productions.” Michael Rosenbaum’s first project with the company was “GHILD” an award-winning coming of age tale about a boy who is born a giant. Rosenbaum wrote, produced and starred in the fairy tale short, which was shown at film festivals throughout the nation.

Rosenbaum has appeared in several movies, including “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” “Urban Legend,” “Sweet November,” “Poolhall Junkies,” “Sorority Boys,” “Bringing Down the House,” and “Kickin’ It Old Skool.”

Its official Fox renews Breaking in

mro Just a day after rumblings began to circulate online, Fox has officially announced it’s rescuing the Christian Slater sitcom Breaking In from cancellation, ordering a 13-episode second season that will debut in 2012.

The comedy, which also stars Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley, Odette Annable and Michael Rosenbaum, centers on Contra Security, a company that tests its clients’ security systems by breaking into them.

Created by Adam F. Goldberg (Fanboys) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), the half-hour workplace comedy has a history with the network dating back October 2009, when executives made the initial pilot commitment. The series was officially picked up in November 2010, but didn’t premiere until April 6, 2011, where it served as a midseason replacement following American Idol. Breaking In was canceled in May along with Human Target and a handful of other series, but talk of a reprieve emerged almost immediately.

“Breaking In is a creatively vibrant and wildly adventurous comedy,” Fox’s President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly said in a statement. “We are looking forward to bringing it back for a second season and continuing our relationship with this incredibly talented cast and these fantastic creators — Adam Goldberg and Seth Gordon. We can’t wait to see where they take these characters next year.”
