Michael Rosenbaum Describes His Return To 'Smallville'

Michael RosenbaumAs the end of “Smallville” draws closer, those involved have plenty to say about their experience. This includes Michael Rosenbaum, the actor who will bring fan-favorite villain Lex Luthor back to the small screen in one of the series' final episodes.

In an interview with TVLine, Rosenbaum discussed his return to The CW's “Smallville.”

"I have to say, that was the most amazing time, going back," he said. "There were people who worked on that crew that aren’t even working on the show anymore that came to see me. It was like a family I hadn’t seen in a while.”

And while he may look fine on screen, even he got the jitters when he stepped in front of the camera again as one of DC's most iconic villains.

“People don’t know this, but I got nervous,” he said. “I was really nervous. To jump back into that role and start quoting Sun Tzu, and I’m looking at Tom [Welling]…? It felt so surreal. I was going, ‘Can I do this?’ And finally you just do it!”

Rosenbaum also commented on revisiting his alter ego's hairless look with a fresh perspective.

“Believe it or not, I’m actually glad I shaved my head all those years, because the bald cap [used in the series finale] is a bitch!” he revealed. “It took like 2-1/2 hours to get on, and it is not the most comfortable thing.”
