I'm Michael Rosenbaum - most of you probably know me from my role as the supervillain Lex Luthor (the only one to fully shave his head to play the part - COMMITMENT!) on Smallville, as well as working on Hit and Run with Bradley Cooper. I have worked with a bunch of great actors from Christopher Walken and Clint Eastwood to Forest Whitaker and Kevin Spacey. I was also the voice of the Flash for many years on the Justice League.

What some of you may not know is that I recently made my directorial debut with Back In The Day - a movie that I am very proud of, which I also wrote and starred in with Nick Swardson (Pretend Time, Grandma's Boy), Morena Baccarin (Homeland), Isaiah Mustafa (much more than The Old Spice Guy), Sarah Colonna (Chelsea Lately) and Harland Williams (Half Baked). It's out in theaters today and on iTunes!

I also work for my charity - Echoes of Hope I'm playing hockey this Sunday at Sundance to raise money for it. Check it out and help out in any way if you like. I also work with The Ronald McDonald House in Seattle


I'm on Twitter

Bring it on, ask me anything - Poolhall Junkies, Lex Luthor, Hit and Run, Sweet November, Urban Legend, The Flash, Back in the Day, and anything else!

EDIT: Guys, thank you all so much - I had to go and deal with everything I have to do today with Back In The Day premiering in theaters. You were all incredible, and I wish I had had more time to answer you all. It's awesome to see how many great fans I have, and how many people care about my work. Please support indie movies and see Back In The Day!

As the best live-action version of Lex Luthor of all time, how much influence did you have over the direction of his character? Smallville's Lex was so much more of a match for Superman than Hackman or Spacey, which isn't a dig at their acting so much as the character.

You absolutely aced Lex over the years, so I really hope Zack Snyder gives you a call.

ImMichaelRosenbaum42 karma

thank you a million times over. i never imagined in my wildest dreams i'd be playing lex luthor. i'm such a silly person. But the fans have been great and it looks like i did not let them down. i didn't do any research for the role. i remembered Mr. Hackman from the Superman movies but i knew if i was going to play this character for a long time, i'd have to play it real... grounded. I hope Zack at least lets me read so i can at least say i read for it. haha

NCR-Patriot30 karma

Hi Michael I'd just like to say that your voice has become the Flash in my mind in the same way Kevin Conroy is the de facto Batman. As for my question, what comic book character would be your dream to play if you hadn't been cast as the Flash?

ImMichaelRosenbaum36 karma

batman. i could do it. i can make my voice deeper

jgp1128 karma

I loved the interactions between you and John Glover on Smallville. The show was not nearly as good when you guys were gone.

How did you feel about the way Lex was handled at the end of the show?

ImMichaelRosenbaum37 karma

much obliged my friend. John is a genius and made me a much better actor. he is not only a gifted actor but an incredible guy. just had dinner at his house a few months ago. love him. he's like a dad. a good one though.


What episode of Smallville was your favorite to work on? And what was it like playing a character that changes from being a person trying to do the right thing to becoming Superman’s nemesis?

I also would just like to say your portrayal of Lex Luthor is easily one of the best acting performances on television! Smallville will always be my favorite show of all time.

ImMichaelRosenbaum21 karma

loved shattered.

the best characters are the ones that have an arc. that go somewhere. going from a man who is trying to do what's right to a man who's truly lost.... that was some journey. one long freaking journey

it's folks like you that make us successful. without you, where would we be? thanks for watching all these years.

yourpalthomps22 karma

thanks for releasing your new movie online concurrently with the theater release. are you getting the response that you had hoped for with the digital market and do you think that this is going to become a bigger trend in movie distribution?

ImMichaelRosenbaum21 karma

it's tough. for an Independent movie to be seen, you really have to get the word out. And before VOD and ITUNES, it was really tough. I'm just thankful that people get to see the movie. The digital market is the future. now and forever. I still want people to go see Back in the Day in theaters. It's different experience.

AllenHenry20 karma

Hi Michael! Loved your work on Smallville...

Was there a prop or memento you got to take away from your time on the show that you hold near and dear?

ImMichaelRosenbaum25 karma

yeah. i stole this crazy piece of art from lex's office. i have it here. haha. and his long trench coat from the last episode ever. yes! didn't really steal. just sounds cool to say.

clexkate17 karma

Hello, Michael! This is a question I've been dying to ask you for several years. Clark and Lex were always destined to be enemies, but Smallville always hinted that Lex could have been a powerful ally to Clark under the right circumstances. So my question is if Clark had confided in Lex about his alien powers in the early seasons when they were still good friends, would Lex have been okay with it? Would he have helped Clark in understanding his powers and giving him protection, or would he have eventually used Clark for his own personal gain? I've wondered this for years and it would be great to hear your opinion! - Katey

ImMichaelRosenbaum20 karma

so have i Katey. so have i. i think if you're honest with someone from the beginning, there's a level of respect. Clark was never honest with Lex.... so the story goes. But i think that's what is great about this story. it's really left to the imaginations of the fans to think about what could have been.

AndyGurtch16 karma

Hey Mike! I just graduated from Castle, and watched your movie at Showplace. It was fantastic! My dad was actually an extra in the film, and he says thank you for the opportunity! It was really cool of you to film it in Newburgh, and we wish you the best of luck!

ImMichaelRosenbaum19 karma

i love you. not because you're a fellow hoosier or loved the movie... but because you're so darn nice. thank you. please spread the word.

jgp1115 karma

The Flash was one of my favorite characters on Justice League! I wish they had done more episodes focused on him or even spun him off into his own animated series. Did you enjoy working with Kevin Conroy and the other great voice actors on that show? Would you welcome more opportunities to voice him in the future?

ImMichaelRosenbaum18 karma

yes. they were a real treat. we were always goofing around. but most of the time i was filming smallville so had to do by myself. but i agree... i always liked to be focused on. :)

ImMichaelRosenbaum14 karma

We hit 400. wow. I love you all. Thanks so much. I'm out now to promote Back in the Day. If you had fun today, then maybe help a brother out. much thanks, Michael Rosenbaum (Your Lex Luthor)

ImMichaelRosenbaum14 karma

Guys, I'll be on for another half an hour or so. I wish I could stay forever. This is a blast. But Back in the Day opens today so i have to do a million things like feed my dog. But you can always tweet me @mrosenbaum711, instagram irvrules, or vine me at Michael Rosenbaum. I respond quite frequently. This has been a real treat. Those that know me, know I love my fans. See ya'll on the flip side. But i'm still answering for next half hour.

meteordes11 karma

Who do you think would make an awesome Lex Luthor if they decide to use him in the Zack Snyder Superman series? If it were me, I would cast you :P.

ImMichaelRosenbaum36 karma

Because I think.. and this is my opinion... that Lex needs to be dynamic and layered. I think he can be funny and insane at the same time. But it needs to be played with absolute conviction. I know I can do this. I think most actors are either serious or comedic. I like to think of myself as both. Unfortunately some people can't get past the fact that I played Lex on television, but i guarantee they would within the first five minutes of watching the movie. Sorry to toot the old horn, but it's honestly how I feel.

TheEmpressStar10 karma

How would you describe your latest movie "Back In The Day" - IN JUST 3 WORDS - to someone who hasn't seen it yet? Apart from AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME :)

ImMichaelRosenbaum9 karma

Hmm. Back in the Day....

Fun. Raunchy. Heartfelt. Farts. damn, that's four.

Robot62155889 karma

What was your favorite car that you got to drive as Lex Luthor? I seem to remember him owning a few Ferraris as a couple Porsches.

ImMichaelRosenbaum23 karma

i feel more comfortable driving a van or pick up truck but i didn't hate driving Lamorghinies. (i don't care about spelling)

mayphoenix6 karma

Speaking of vans, do you still have the Shaggin' Wagon?

ImMichaelRosenbaum8 karma

Is BITD going to be released in the UK or made available on DVD?

Fuck, marry, kill. Tom Welling, Tom Arnold, Tommy Lee.

For reddit, the credit you are looking for is Firefly...

ImMichaelRosenbaum10 karma

how dare you. hahahha

joelaflow8 karma

Hey Michael, big fan of your work and can’t wait for your new film.

My question would be, just how many doctors, lawyers, etc. did Lex have on retainer on Smallville? He seemed to always have plenty of people to assist Clark or others when needed.

ImMichaelRosenbaum14 karma

Wow. Good question. I wish i knew. let's say a crap load. I think the real question is "where the hell is his security team?" haha

malugargula8 karma

What's one character you'd never play and why?

ImMichaelRosenbaum8 karma

Well i've played a super villain, a super hero, a transvestite, a pool shark... what's left?

malugargula7 karma

Which one is harder to play: love, fight or hate scenes?

ImMichaelRosenbaum12 karma

love. for sure. always feel stupid gazing into someones eyes who doesn't really love you.

JustCaws7 karma

Loved your performance in smallville! It was brilliant. And justice league of course. My question is: What was the hardest thing you encountered in your roll/getting/preparing of Lex and how did you face it? Thanks!

ImMichaelRosenbaum8 karma

just thinking if i could actually pull it off. i was worried. and would i look like the dude from goonies when i shaved my head.

randsome017 karma

Congrats on Back in Day. Gonna watch it this weekend. I also want to commend you on having the coolest pad on MTV's cribs. Unlike some of the other places they've show, yours looked lived in.

Now my question is: Has there any been any role you went out for that you didn't get?

ImMichaelRosenbaum16 karma

funny story or long story longer... Sandra Bullock came up to me at a Kings game and said " you are so funny" and i said "what movie did you see me in" and she said "cribs". haha. anyway.. thanks for checking the movie out this weekend. i'll hold you to that. i have been up for many many roles that i didn't get. Saving Private Ryan, Good Will Hunting, and millions of others. But i was lex luthor so i ain't complaning. hahah

blueskidoowecantoo6 karma

Graduate of Castle here,

Even though I graduated a year too soon to be directly involved with the filming, I wanna say thanks for continuing to give back to the community you grew up in and remembering where you came from. I met you a long time ago with Mrs. Godeke and you were such a class act and humble. Way to put the burgh on the map!

Hm question. What do you miss most from small town Indiana?

ImMichaelRosenbaum14 karma

HEY CASTLE!!!!! that's exactly what i wanted to do. I wanted people to see where I grew up and admire what it's really like to grow up in a small town. i loved giving back. but really, it was my home that gave back. too damn generous.

Eannsu6 karma

Michael, do you know if there will be a Back in The Day DVD and Soundtrack?

ImMichaelRosenbaum9 karma

hell yes! i made sure of it! with loads of extra crap. so much fun. if you go see it in theaters, stay for the credits. 4 minutes of outtakes. I love when comedies do that. i want to see that crap. i'm a fan. and we will have an independent soundtrack for all the indie bands. and all the money will go directly to them. quick shout out to MOCK ORANGE from indiana.

Eannsu2 karma

Just finished Back in The Day, I did see the credits! I also love when movies do that. It's so funny! Loved seeing you be acting and directing at the same time! A man with many hats.

Hi Michael! First, thanks for getting me through boring chemo treatments (Smallville episodes)! We are both 80's kids, and are a little (okay a LOT) into music. So, I'm going to ask: What 5 discs would you take with you on a desert island? XoXo from coastal NC

Velorium_Camper4 karma

Hey Michael, I met you a couple years ago at Dragon*Con. I was going to get your autograph, but you were selling them for $20 and I couldn't afford to get it (I was a poor college student.) You told your assistant that you knew me and gave me a free autograph. I just wanted to thank you for being awesome and making my experience enjoyable. Keep up the good work. If you ever come back to Dragon Con, I can finally give you the $20 I owe you haha

ImMichaelRosenbaum13 karma

you owe me nothing. you're devotion as a fan is plenty. seriously. they make those rules, but i always find a way to break them with special cases. because i'm so special. :))))))

NotFredFlintstone4 karma

Between being an actor, director, producer, and writer, what role do you find to be the most difficult?

ImMichaelRosenbaum7 karma

individually... they are all difficult. but when you do them all at the same time.... that's a real bitch! Back in the Day was a handful and it was the first time doing all of those things together. but wouldn't trade it for the world. the next project i think i'll just direct and maybe play a smaller role if any. I really enjoyed just the directing aspect on those few days where I only had to direct.

Sisiwakanamaru4 karma


I heard you voiced this character on the first Yakuza series. What was the experience?

republic_of_gary3 karma

Michael, big fan. I saw Back in the Day and loved it. I recently read a tweet of yours that you wanted Leo DiCaprio's Star Wars collection of memorabilia. I've read you have an awesome toy/action figure collection yourself in your home office. Care to share a photo?

ImMichaelRosenbaum11 karma

Hi Michael, I guess the character of the questions will depend on what you're wearing right now...so assuming you're decent...here goes...what's the best AND the worst movie soundtrack ever that's left a lasting impression on you and why?

ImMichaelRosenbaum5 karma

caddy shack is great. so is footloose and breakfast club. worst? hmm. probably and remake of those movies.

fmarquez19943 karma

I am such a huge 90s fan, and I feel that you really spoke to me with all the 90s nostalgia through the music in Back in the Day. What was your scene in the 90s? How do you feel you represented the 90s in this film?

ImMichaelRosenbaum8 karma

i love music. mostly 80's and 90's, but i really wanted to give an energy to the movie and with songs like "sex and candy", "in the meantime" and "more human than human"... those were my favorites back then. They just speak to me like I'm assuming they spoke to you. Radical.

I really got a kick out of the film Sorority Boys. How did you get along with your 2 other co-stars? Did you guys get into any funny antics behind the scenes?

ImMichaelRosenbaum6 karma

always got into trouble. i loved when we were in drag and crew guys from other movies saw us from afar...and they would stare. but when we got closer they looked like they were going to shit themselves. it was great. we were not pretty women. nothing like jared leto. and i love reuniting with harland williams for back in the day . he's my pal

interpolite2 karma

First, I'm a big fan. I believe Smallville suffered after you left and there was a void that just couldn't be filled.

Were there any actors that helped influence your Lex Luthor?

Also, how was it working on Always Sunny?

ImMichaelRosenbaum3 karma

my relationship with my father helped. hahaahaha. sunny was amazing. great people. funny ass people.

How did you feel about Back In The Day being the movie for your directorial debut? Also, you seem to be heavily invested in movies at the moment, but will we ever see you back on TV?

ImMichaelRosenbaum4 karma

love tv. but i get offered a lot of crap. the best part of being on a successful series like smallville is that now i can be patient and do what i want. i'm very luck. i just auditioned for a Scorsese pilot. I would do that in a heartbeat. I just don't want to do NCIS Nebraska. not that it would be bad. just not what i want to do.

  • If you had to choose to be either Lex Luthor or The Flash in real life, which character would you pick and why?
  • There was a lot of rumor going around that you would be picked as Lex in the Superman v. Batman movie. Would that have been a role you'd be interests in reprising?
  • I host a podcast that has celebrity guests talk about hobbies and and things they nerd out about outside of their careers. Would you be interested in being a part of the show for an episode?

Thank you and look forward to your answers!

flash. he's so fast. get where i wanted so quickly. and he can travel in time. right?

Hanuh162 karma

huge fan! I have many things I want to ask but honestly, why does it seem like everyone that played on Smallville has acted as if the show was a burden? You're pretty much the only one who hasn't. Also, why doesn't anyone interact with Tom anymore? Congrats in the movie! Can't wait to see it!

ImMichaelRosenbaum6 karma

i complained sometimes. everyone does. but i'm sincerely appreciative at the same time. everyone has bad days at the office. i guess ours is just more public. Tom just does his own thing. that's okay. i mean we were working 12 hours a day together for many years. i know that when they called wrap.... the last people i wanted to hang with was my cast. haha. but we still talk. good dude

TBLacK4572 karma

Hey Michael, big fan of your work in Smallville, and Justice League! You were consistently the highlights of both shows. My question(s) for you is this:

What ran through your mind when you were asked to come back for the series finale?

And how did you think the series as a whole turned out, as far as Clark and Lex's journey towards their respective roles in the world?

ImMichaelRosenbaum7 karma

thanks again. i'm eating mexican food right now btw. just thought i'd say that. anyway...i had too. the fans wanted it. gotta make your fans happy. and i didn't want to hear "why didn't you go back" when i was 80 and dying. the series put me on the map. i'm forever indebted. it was a nice ending. It was no Breaking Bad, but what really is? that's my fave. haha

davidrolding2 karma

Hey Michael! First off I would like to say my wife and I are huge fans of you from Smallville! My question for you is this. In Season 2 was Helen out to betray Lex the entire time or did she make the decision as a result of Lex coming clean about stealing the blood from her lab? I thought maybe that made her hate Lex and turn on him or maybe she was just playing the whole time.

ImMichaelRosenbaum4 karma

playing him like everyone else in the world. poor lex. no wonder he had to get rid of em all. haha. EVIL!!
