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.
