Smallville's Lex, Heroes' Micah find roles

Maybe Michael Rosenbaum just wanted to get a role where he can have hair. The former Smallville arch-villain has found a new TV life much different from the part he played on the CW show. Also landing a new role is Noah Gray-Cabey, who played the machine-manipulating Micah on NBC's Heroes.

Rosenbaum will play a married man with an adopted son in an upcoming NBC comedy from producer Justin Adler (Samantha Who?), says The Hollywood Reporter. The domestic life is a far cry from his previous role as young Lex Luthor in Smallville.

Also joining the Adler project is Nick D'Agosto, who was last seen on Heroes as Claire's boyfriend West.

Young actor Gray-Cabey is lined up for ABC's Limelight, about a New York performing-arts school. He'll play one of the students and get a chance to show off some singing and dancing skills.

Elsewhere, veteran actor Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) has been added to the cast of ABC's drama Happy Town. Neill was previously seen as the scheming Cardinal Wolsey in The Tudors and also in NBC's Crusoe.

Well I think of Michael more like a comedian, maybe because the movies I remember of him were comedies, and was amaizing, specially in Soroty Boys, it was so silly but his character was freakin' hilarious.

That Limelight sounds like an American version of Britannia High, lets hope not cos that show was awful. It's good that Micah has got a job though and finally Rosenbaum gets something to do other than Smallville. You could clearly see in the 8th Season that he just couldn't be bothered anymore.

Well, Im glad for Rosenbaum, but I was hoping he would play a big part of Smallvilles 9th season. Maybe he can make guest appearances to reprise Lex.

Good for Rosenbaum to bad his Lex Luthor was legendary to bad im seing it "Smallville Have Lost One Of The Biggest Characters in History" (Not because of Lex Luthor but none will ever play Lex Luthor as Rosenbaum did it none...)

As long as Rosenbaum's hair looks better than it did in Sorority Boys, it'll be a good hair day for him. What Smallville needs is the villainy he portrayed so well as Lex Luthor. Hopefully they'll be a big guest spot still open for him in it's next season, and hopefully he does well in his current role.

I love Nick D'Agosto! I'm so happy he's returning to tv, even though his character was never truly resolved on Heroes.



As for Gray-Cabey, well, Micah was never my favorite...
