Birthdays & Michael in 2008! [Jan. 1st, 2009|04:02 pm]

Happy birthday to lisamdixon2002! Hope you had a Spike-tastic, Marsterriffic day!

Happy birthday to dawnybee! I adore your posts beyond words. Each one is a perfect entertainment digest, with pretty pictures of pretty men, combined with fabulously acerbic commentary. And since you've introduced me to so many bands, here's a song for you. Little Jackie used to perform as Imani Coppola (remember "Legends of a Cowgirl?) Her new song is called "28 Butts" and it's hip-shaking ear-candy!

And happy birthday to the other New Year's baby, ir3naus as well!

MICHAEL! I was looking back through old entries....he was a busy guy this year! Behind the cut, a sampling of favourite pics and quotes from The Sexy in 2008. Be warned: longwindedness!

The 'Baum in 2008!Collapse )

What a fantastic post to start the new year!!

Michael let the guys ask him a few questions:
Q: Will you do me a favor and tell Tom he has to wear the suit in the last episode of the series?

Michael: (laughs) I keep telling him that.

Q: And he keeps saying no?

Michael: (laughs) Yeah but we'll see.

Read: We'll see if he caves when I offer him sexual favors in exchange.

Tom Arnold notes: "Michael, you would not do well in prison. You'd be popular. They'd like you."

.:images from an imaginary SV/Prison Break x-over cloud her mind:.

It's still archived here, if anyone missed it:

Thank you SO much for the heads up!

About a "Slither" discussion panel, a fan wrote:
Eventually, Michael Rosenbaum got up to leave, which drew ire from the gentlemen on stage (James Gunn, Nathan Fillion). Rosenbaum turned around and said, "This movie has been out for a fucking year!" and then continued to walk toward the exit.

Gah, how does he pull off being this awesome ALL the time?!

Also in April: Michael announced he would not be returning as Lex, (and the fans went through the seven stages of grief!)


Michael was a bit "emo" too, revealing:
"I said goodbye to the crew, gave them all hugs, we were really close. I wasn't choked up, and I was like, well, okay, I'm not gonna get... so I went into the makeup trailer, and the last time she cleaned my head, because usually it's like an hour and a half process, putting makeup on, and at the end of the night she takes it off, because you're not supposed to see a hairline for Lex Luthor. So she takes it off, and she gives me a hug and she's... my makeup artist, her name is Natalie, she says, "I love you!" and she starts crying. So I was okay, and then I walk out the door and I turn around and I look at her and I know this is my last time walking, and I just lost it like a little puppy looking for its mama, I mean, I just started crying, I was like, oh my god, I'm crying, Lex doesn't cry!"

.:chokes up:.

Laura: "I'm too young to know that song."

Michael: "That hurt!"

Later on...

Michael: I write a lot. I have a project that I wrote, we have a budget for. We're looking to attract actors...

Laura: *raises hand* "I'm one of those actors you can attract!"

Michael: "You're a little YOUNG though..." *crowd explodes*

Michael on Tom:
"You know how many times we would goof because there'd be a moment - well, you guys know about the grabbing-ass thing? You saw those, like I don't think I regret....no one cares. I mean, he's my boy, man! And yeah, we're grabbing ass all the time, touching each other's butts. It's okay! We were buddies and sometimes we'd be in a scene and it's really intense and it's just...."you're so friggin' handsome!" (as Lex) "Forget about all my lies, your lies, let's just live this moment! Keep it real, brother. Keep it real."

Man, this quote NEVER gets old, does it? .:melts:.

Michael explains "kneel before Zod!"
"That line....I mean, I couldn't do it because...imagine me, standing there in this giant leather - I want to say something but I'm not going to - and it was 20 pounds and it was, like, purple and I was all "Omigod, where is my career going? KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!" You know that line, it was hard not to...when Tom got on his knees and I had to goof around. "KNEEL BEFORE ZOD and" (whispers) "suck it!" I had to say that on camera! 'Cause we're joking around, two guys fooling around.....(crowd laughs) Not like that!

I haven't even seen those episodes, yet, but I'm pretty sure the supposed 'seriousness' of the scene never really stood a chance with me. Especially not after THAT. O_O

Keep it real, Clark. Keep it real. He liked that."


Asked by a Fan about SV's most touching moment:
Michael: "That's a good question...that's good. You know the last one was very hard for me, because it was the last episode, the last moment and it's the last time....and I looked at Clark and I added that line, my very last line of the show for Lex, for Lex in the series, when he looks down and says "I loved you like a brother" and that wasn't written. "I love you like a brother...."

I'm actually considering skipping S4, S5 and S6 just to get there, ready to bawl my eyes out Schindler's List-style...

how forever-smitten I am with his Lex Luthor,

I truly wish him as much success in his future career as, say, Cary Grant, because he's so damn talented, but I have no doubt in my mind his Lex is going to be one his best roles ever.

Michael talking about Tom & Clex is always the Best Thing Ever!

It's a hard road, but there are a few great eps along the way: Nemesis, Transference, Cure etc

Amen to that!

Then I guess I'll have to be a brave little girl and face the music. ;)

That said, if you had to mark the exact episode where it all started to go downhill, which one would you pick?

He's a sweetie-pie! Hope he continues to go to Cons - I'd love to see him again.
