Michael Rosenbaum is a Zero!

Although it puts another nail into any hope of him reprising his role of Lex Luthor on Smallville, the good news is that Michael Rosenbaum is developing his return to television in the form of Syfy's Saved By Zeroes.
Writes The Hollywood Reporter, "Rosenbaum and Jonathan Silverman are set to star in the project, created by Rosenbaum and based on his personal experiences. It revolves around two friends, former actors on a science fiction show that has since developed a cult following, who have hit rock bottom and must work together to get their lives back on track... [Syfy Senior VP Andrew] Plotkin said the network's brass were instantly drawn to Zeroes because of the involvement of Rosenbaum, Silverman and Happy Madison, but it was the concept that sealed the deal. 'This is such a personal idea of Michael's stemming from his experience on Smallville,' he said. 'There is a lot of character depth to it.'"

Calling the show a cross between Galaxy Quest and Eastbound & Down, Rosenbaum is quoted as saying, "Through drugs and drinking, (the characters played b Rosenbaum and Silverman) didn't save money and, years later, the only thing they have left are the conventions, all they've got are their loyal, devoted fans. Our show is not about being in the business, it's about being out of the business; it's the 'Non-tourage.' We're the losers you want to see back on top."

I don't know why he is so against returning for even just a few episodes at the end of Smallville. Hopefully he'll change his mind!

this show sounds cool. but i agree bamf7. i just dont get the attitude about smallville. its what put him on the map and allows this new show to even be made. i dont get what a one or two episode return would hurt.
