Michael Rosenbaum Recalls Old Days

He spent a few years paying his dues on TV as Lex Luthor in Smallville, and he's snagged a few movie roles here and there. But now Michael Rosenbaum is stepping up to direct his first full-length film, Old Days.

He’ll step in front of the camera too, starring as Jim Owens, a frustrated actor who returns home from the bright lights of Hollywood to the slightly dimmer pastures of Indiana and his 15th high school reunion. Naturally, there are complications as Jim gets into trouble with his old friends and rediscovers his feelings for his high school sweetheart (Morena Baccarin, most recently seen in US telly drama Homeland).

Rosenbaum has also recruited Sarah Colonna, Harland Williams and Jay Ferguson for the film, which he’ll kick off shooting early next month. While it’ll be his first spin behind the camera for a film, he’s already got horror short Fade Into You scraping through post production and also wrote and produced fantasy short Ghild back in 2010.
