Michael Rosenbaum still playing the bad boy

Everyone's favourite Lex Luthor of Superman on the small screen is returning to television once more. Michael Rosenbaum, who portrayed the villainous arch nemesis to the Man of Steel over the 10 years of Smallville's run, has been cast alongside funny girl Sara Rue (born Sara Schlackman )in TV Land's comedy pilot Impastor.

Fans of Rosenbaum last saw him in the short-lived Fox comedy Breakin-In which co-starred Christian Slater and Meagan Mullay (Will and Grace) as Dutch beau to Odette Yustman's Mel.

From the mind of Christopher Vane who was behind the Brooke Shields hit Suddenly Susan, Impastor follows a deep-in-debt scalawag named Buddy (Rosenbaum) who lies low in a small town by passing himself off as the gay pastor the local church recently hired. Rue will play Dora, Buddy’s prim and somewhat anal retentive assistant.

While it has not as yet been picked-up for a full series Rosenbaum and Rue are likely to make a very interesting on-screen pairing.
