Self-assured and possessed with a rapid-fire sense of humor, Michael Rosenbaum shaved his blond locks for the role he seems born to play: a young Lex Luthor on The CW's television series, "Smallville."

Born in Oceanside, New York, and raised in Newburgh, Indiana, Michael Rosenbaum excelled in high school drama classes. Once hooked, Rosenbaum took on lead roles in college stage productions such as The Heidi Chronicles while attending Western Kentucky University and performing in regional theater during his summers.

Upon graduating with a degree in Mass Communications and Theater, Rosenbaum packed his bags and headed for New York to pursue acting. Rosenbaum quickly landed roles in off-Broadway productions and small independent films, and soon segued into regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" in a sketch called "The Amsterdam Kids."

Rosenbaum's first real break came when he got a series regular role on The WB comedy series, "The Tom Show," starring Tom Arnold. The relationship with the network continued as Rosenbaum was cast as Jack in the New York comedy "Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane."

Keeping busy over his hiatus, Rosenbaum appeared in the feature film "Bringing Down the House," opposite Steve Martin. He can be seen in the independent film "Poolhall Junkies," with Chazz Palminteri and Christopher Walken. Other film credits include "Sorority Boys," with Barry Watson ("7th Heaven") and "Sweet November" with Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron. Rosenbaum also starred in the hit thriller "Urban Legend" and appeared in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Kevin Spacey and John Cusack. Rosenbaum also appeared in Wes Craven's thriller "Cursed," with Christina Ricci.

Rosenbaum currently resides in Los Angeles. When not working, he belongs to an ice hockey league, a sport that he has played since childhood, and is a dedicated New York Rangers fan.
