Birthday Wishes and Michael's guy pals! [Oct. 5th, 2008|02:40 pm]

Happy birthday, yellowwolf5! Hope it's a great day.


Michael has loads of friends - he seem to retain friends from every phase of his life! Behind the cut, twelve of his closest boy-pals!



James Gunn met Michael on a plane.Michael was already pals with Nathan Fillion and he & James instantly hit it off too. James recently posted on his message board, that though he has only known Michael a few years, he is "a good and loyal friend." Aw!


No idea how the friendship with Joey Fatone got started - but they certainly support each other's projects! Michael was in the studio audience to watch Joey perform on "Dancing with the Stars" and here's Joey at the "Kickin' it Old Skool" premiere!


Michael's friendship with Dax Shepherd seems to be of recent vintage, leading to a shared cameo in Kate Hudson's short film "Cutlass". Michael also made a poignant appearance in Dax's series "BroSearch." Don't know if it was meant to be poignant but the plaintive eyes break my heart:

Brosearch Episode 4 - Watch more free videos
And here's Michael enjoying a night out with Dax, Tara Lipinski and Chris:


Michael and Andrew Keegan have frequently popped up at events together: a Sundance party this year, a Morrissey concert last year. A person who attended the concert noted: "Andrew Keegan & Michael Rosenbaum": Saw these 2 actors at the show. In Garden boxes just a few in front of me. It blew me away that they are Morrissey fans, but made me ecstatic! Michael Rosenbaum Got up on a chair and was waving his arms around singing Please Please Please...it was awesome!

Michael and Andrew received "positive reviews" from a Beverley Hills valet, who described them thusly, in his blog: Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luther from Smallville and the coolest guy I've ever met. Second time in my life I've ever blushed)... Andrew Keegan (The snobby model from "10 Things I Hate About You" but is actually really cool. He came with Michael Rosenbaum)
(What did Michael do to make this guy blush? *wonders*)
http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=36433241&blogID=59741881

What I like about Andrew is that, although he's a very beautiful guy, in this photo he looks like a total goof next to Michael. I can identify with that. That was me in my SFX photo-op!

Want another try at posing, Andrew? Well, maybe not...

(He really is an attractive guy, though!)


Michael and Topher Grace seem to have been pals for a while. Here's a quote from gossip columnist Ted Casablanca, from a few years back:
Smallville hunk Michael Rosenbaum was waxing all sad and lonely 'bout his lack of a honey--seems lately he spends more time doin' karaoke with Topher Grace than knockin' boots. (No, I ain't kidding.) So, I suggested he hit on Debbie [Gibbson].

"What would I say to her?" he asked, all awestruck as a boy at an eighth-grade dance.

Dude. I think you're hanging with Toph too much, seriously.

(I don't! Please continue to cuddle each other in public.)


Cuba Gooding Jr is one of Michael's hockey buddies - they've played in lots of charity games together and often turn up at the same events. This photo inspires envy in me:


One of Michael's most enduring SV friendships has been with former producer/director Greg Beeman, who even got a shout-out in his goodbye note! "...Mostly, I want to thank Greg Beeman for directing the "Oh Sherry" video, by Steve Perry, back in the 80's...." They continue to collaborate on projects (and I would love to see Michael do a guest spot on "Heroes" someday!)


Michael seems to have stayed tight with both his "Sorority Boys" co-stars. Here he is playing with Barry Watson's hair...

and hanging with fellow hockey fan Harland Williams and a bunch of NHL'ers!


Think I'd leave this guy out? No! Michael: "I mean, he's my boy, man!" (Anything to add, Michael?) Michael: "We talk every day...."


Of course, there's another Tom...one who has been through a lot of ups and downs in his personal life and career. Michael has stuck it out with him:


They seem like a mismatched pair...but they sure do enjoy each other's company! Here they are at a Superbowl party, asked how they'll react if the Giants win:
MR: "I'm going to cry. And hold Tom."
TA: "He's gonna..."
MR: "And you'll hold me?"
TA: "Yeah."
MR: "Thank you!"
TA: "We'll spoon."
(Here's the link for the clip...Michael appears at the 33 second mark and again at the end.)

But among all the RosenFriends, there can be only one Best Friend Forever. And we all know who wears the crown...



I love that Chris has his own fan-following now :)

Thanks! It was hard narrowing the field to 12 guys! Poor Jensen didn't make the cut.

Happy Birthday!

Another amazing post from you! Anyone who has the privilege of calling Michael friend is lucky indeed. And I'm so happy for him that he has such genuine friendships in his life, people he can count on, and who love him for who he is, not his celebrity or Hollywood connections. Especially BFF Chris. I think those two are the definition of soulmates.

Thank you! He's certainly no fairweather friend and has been rewarded with loyalty in return.

Especially BFF Chris. I think those two are the definition of soulmates.
Awww! It's true. They're so cute & I love how Michael brings Chris to all these events.

isn't that nice? i mean, seriously, it's really nice. it speaks so very well of him that people remain devoted to him (and he to them). thanks for the smiles!

but yes, that video with him in the hat, looking for a friend... i saw it a while back and wanted to cry. it still hurts my heart. he's so loooooonely!

He's so genius at finding the underlying ache in these characters.

it speaks so very well of him that people remain devoted to him (and he to them).
And this is the short-list! I had to leave off a few cuties, like Jensen & Nathan Fillion!

Great post! I love that he seems to make friends wherever he goes and keep them - he's just so lovable. Also I'm giggling at his 'Happy Trees' T-shirt in the pic before last, which I've never noticed before.

OH, my gosh! "Happy Trees!!!" I'm so glad you caught that! That's Bob Ross, who used to have an instructional TV show on how to paint. He'd speak in this peaceful, Zen-like tone the whole time, and he would actually describe his trees as "happy" as he was painting them. "Let's just put in some little trees here....just happy trees....."

LOL!!!

This was all just so cute and sweet! :D It really is nice knowing that a celebrity can have such loyal friendships and genuinely cherish them. :)

And I wanna know what Michael did to make that valet blush too? lol

There are so many sexy possibilities...

I think it's one of his sweetest qualities!

What a wonderful, wonderful post! Michael has such great friends, and I think that it's because he himself is a wonderful, honest, and trustworthy friend who people can count on to open up to and talk to, no matter what. Anyone who can count Michael as a friend is, in my opinion, a very lucky person.

Indeed! Imagine getting to hug him whenever you wanted to? Wow.

Absolutely - and loyal too!

Thanks for all of the great Michael pictures! He looks so happy in all of them! The pictures of him holding his Saturn award makes me think about the hard time Tom was giving him over that during the Red and Rosetta commentaries. :-)

That's one of the all-time cutest Michael/Tom moments! "Well, when you're working with a Saturn award winner...."

Count me in on this, I love Chris. Especially after he told that Ricky Springfield story.

And you know when Michael was explaining who Chris is, "Bestfriend, slash, karaoke-er, slash, writing partner, slash", I'm sorry but I laughed.

He was so funny - I bet he knows all the best Michael-stories!

Ha! I missed that - how hilarious!
