Biography

Michael Rosenbaum est né à Oceanside, dans l'État de New York au sein d'une famille américaine et fut élevé dans l'Indiana. C'est très tôt (au lycée) qu'il découvre sa passion pour la comédie. À l'université, il continue le théâtre, et joue dans la pièce Bachelor of Arts.

Après ses études il s'installe à New York, et se fait remarquer avec son sketch : Amsterdam kids dans le Conan O'Brien Show. Il joue dans de nombreuses petites productions et obtient en 1997 un rôle dans le film The Devil & the Angel.
Ce sont ses rôles dans les films Minuit dans le jardin du bien et du mal de Clint Eastwood en 1997 et l'année d'après dans Urban Legend qui le lancèrent réellement.

Mais c'est grâce à la télévision qu'il sort vraiment de l'anonymat, particulièrement avec le rôle de Lex Luthor dans la série Smallville.

Wonder Woman uses her lasso of truth on the leader to find out who gave them the technology. The leader, despite being under the influence of the lasso, says that he doesn't know who gave them the technology. Martian Manhunter uses his mental powers to scan the minds of each member of the gang, none of them know the origin of the device. Meanwhile, Vandal Savage plots to exterminate the greater part of the human population and start a new civilization, having discreetly given the technology to the Gang in order to test it. To ensure that the Justice League is unable to stop him, Savage hires Mirror Master, who hacks into the Batcomputer and steals contingency plans devised by Batman to incapacitate his League teammates should they ever go rogue. When Mirror Master asks if he wants him to find Batman's true identity, Savage declines stating that he already knows the true identity of Batman. Savage assembles Mirror Master and a group of other supervillains (consisting of Bane, Cheetah, Ma'alefa'ak, Star Sapphire, and Metallo) with personal vendettas against the heroes and pays them to simultaneously attack the members of the League using the stolen plans, albeit altered to be lethal. When the supervillains agree with Savage's plan, he welcomes them to the Legion of Doom.
