A big thank you to whoever uploaded this so we can all see Michael’s appearence on MTV today:
Zap2it caught up with Clark Kent’s ex-nemesis at the “American Idol” Top 12 party on Thursday night. Rosenbaum was fresh off of his first day on the set of “Breaking In.”
“Don’t you really want to ask the big question: Why are you at an ‘American Idol’ party? When I’m 38 years old?” he asks immediately. “My answer is it’s a FOX party. I didn’t even know it was for ‘American Idol.’ I just showed up, and there’s J.Lo pinching my butt cheeks.”
Once he answered that one, we got to the real big question. Why did he hold out so long before agreeing to come back to “Smallville”? It was a rough wait not only for the fans, but for the producers and his long-time friend Tom Welling.
“I always wanted to make it work,” he says, “but I was really busy. Adam [F. Goldberg], the creator of ‘Breaking In’ — he and I were creating a show that I created, that we sold to SyFy, so we’re still developing it. We also wrote a horror movie together. So we were just working a lot and I was doing a movie here or there.”
He sighs. “It’s so funny how the fans can get so intense.” He deepens his voice to an angry tone. “‘What is he doing that he can’t come back? George Clooney came back to ER, and he can’t? How big is he?’ I’m like, ‘Guys, God, relax.’ It’s not about that. So one day, I called the producers up, and I just said ‘Hey, I’m doing this new show, but I’d love to come back and finish what I started.'” He pauses and laughs. “Which I thought I finished three years ago, by the way, but, let’s do this. And they made it happen.”
Rosenbaum went to Vancouver about two weeks ago to shoot his final scenes, and he had a great time getting into character… with the help of a new accessory. “I had a bald cap that looked amazing,” he says. “I couldn’t shave my head because I was on ‘Breaking In.'”
He confesses that he did initially have a few reservations about going back to the “Smallville” set. “There were personal reasons why I quit ‘Smallville’ that no one really knows about, that I never really talk about. It was just personal things, that I just never talked about. It was nobody else’s business. But I never heard the end of it,” he says, chuckling. “Look, I always said I never thought it would last 10 seasons. I can barely have a relationship lasts 10 days. Ten years on a TV show? That’s a long time. But then they started calling me out. I finally said, ‘You know what guys? I want to do this. Let’s just do this.’ I want to do it the right way, I want to do it for the fans. I swear to God I did it for the fans. I never want to hear ‘Why didn’t you go back?’ I wanted it to end the way it should have.”
Now that all is said and done, Rosenbaum says he thinks that the final scenes between Clark and Lex are “excellent.” He was warmly welcomed back on the set by old friends. “It was so great. I went up there and guys that weren’t even working on the show anymore came to set to hang out. One guy brought me a joint,” he jokes. “I mean, it’s a real family.”
Rosenbaum and Welling had a great time working together again. “Tom and I had a wonderful time together,” he tells us. “We laughed a lot. I shot a couple of scenes with him.”
It wasn’t all laughter, though. Fans are going to have a very emotional finale experience come May — and they’re not the only ones. “I shot for 19 hours, and honestly, I had a tear in my eye at the end. I was like, ‘Man, this is really it,'” Rosenbaum says wistfully.
He did it for you, “Smallville” fans, and when “Breaking In” premieres on April 6 at 9:30 p.m., you’ll have the chance to repay the favor. “Hey, I came back, so now all I ask is I hope that my fans and everyone will tune into the new show,” Rosenbaum says. “I think ‘Breaking In’ is a lot of fun. I think it’s a really funny show. I love a good caper.”
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.
