Michael in Father of Invention, Holy Takedown [Nov. 2nd, 2011|10:31 pm]

The director of Father of Invention gave an interview that mentions Michael and their upcoming film as well:

Are you a comic book fan at all? That Michael Rosenbaum vs. Kevin Spacey scene is a “Battle of the Lex Luthors!

That is funny. We joked about the Lex vs. Lex dynamic a few times the day we shot that scene. I was a comic book guy when I was a kid. Loved anything. Justice League. Spacey and Rosenbaum are hilarious in that scene. It’s some of my favorite stuff in the movie. And was good to get to know Michael Rosenbaum who I think is crazy-talented and about to really pop. We are now collaborating on a new Indie comedy called Holy Takedown! Kind of a Napoleon Dynamite-type movie set in the world of Catholic high school wrestling. Great script. Really excited about it.

RosenbaumMediaUS has made 'caps for Father of Invention - directors really love to put him in tank tops, don't they? (Not complaining!)

I'm really looking forward to the Lex vs Lex scene!! I wonder if they've given Chris Melloni (sp?) any tips?

Unless it's a fake-out, Meloni i playing a character called "Colonel Hardy." I don't think Lex has been cast yet...

I'm patiently waiting for this to be available from Netflix. Hopefully I'll be getting it soon. That pic isn't making me any less anxious to see it. lol

I always appreciate the tank tops!

Interesting to get a little bit more info on Holy Takedown as well. I wasn't aware that there was a world of Catholic high school wrestling, heh!

Wrestling is quite big in US schools - will be odd to see Michael in priest garb!

I always appreciate the tank tops!
He was built to wear them!

The Rosenchest is in fine form in this film! ROWR.

I loved finding out that Michael's participation in this film was not random, but rather that he was hand-picked for a cameo by the director, who was already a fan. And now they're collaborating! Michael continues to prove that to know him is to love him, and respect him as an artist as well. ♥

I hope you're feeling better!

He fills out that tank magnificently!

It's sweet, isn't it? I'd wondered if he was handpicked by Spacey - because the scene has "OldLex" putting "YoungLex" is his place: show that young puppy who's boss!

I hope you're feeling better!
Much improved, thank you! Although paradoxically, I sound worse because I'm coughing up the bad stuff now and am hoarse. So I got lots of undeserved pity today when in fact. I'm nearly back to normal!

And how have you been?
