Michael Rosenbaum Would Rather Play THE FLASH; Gives His View On Eisenberg

The man many see as the definitive on-screen Lex Luthor is doing his rounds for the upcoming Back In The Day. Howerver, where does the Smallville actor's heart really lie? He also threw in his two cents on Jesse Eisenberg's casting in Man of Steel 2. Hit the jump to check it out!



Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum, seen by many as the Lex Luthor is doing rounds promoting his new film Back In The Day. On his way he talked to Cinekatz about his favourite role in the DC universe and Jesse Eisenberg's casting as the next Lex Luthor! Here's what he had to say:

When asked which of his two characters he'd rather be, Rosenbaum went with the scarlet speedster!
I would lean toward The Flash kind of guy. The guy who wants to take light of the situation, when everyone is so upset and the world is dying he’s like, “Hey everything’s going to be alright! Let’s go bowling!”. That’s always been me. That’s kind of me and I’ve always had that temperance- the ability to make things better than they are. I think that’s my gift, honestly, is to entertain. I’d have to say I’d be closer to The Flash. I have some evil in me but I’d be positive for the most part.


Rosenbaum was then asked about passing the torch from one Lex to another. He had this to say about Eisenberg:
First off, I think he’s a really good actor. I don’t think he needs any advice from me, he’ll do his homework. Do it your way. I’m sure Zack [Snyder] has an idea. He cast you for reason. Jesse’s a good actor. He’ll do it his own way and that’s the best way. If you can do it your way, if you succeed or fail, you succeed because you are being original. If you’re trying to emulate someone, you’ll always be compared. That’s why I didn’t want to be compared during Smallville. I didn’t watch any of Gene Hackman as Lex. He’ll be fantastic. Great actor, no problem with it.
