Well, the producers have tried and tried but actor Michael Rosenbaum is sticking to his guns. He’s not returning for the last episode of Smallville.
According to EW, a show source says Rosenbaum turned down the latest offer to return to the CW series, saying, “He has put the show behind him and moved on… He’s pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved.”
Apparently producers are leaving the door open just in case he changes his mind before the Smallville cast and crew wrap up production on the final three hours in the next seven weeks.
Tom Welling is surely hoping that his seven season co-star will change his mind at the last minute. Late last year he said, “I don’t know how you end this show without Lex Luthor.”
What do you think? Will Rosenbaum change his mind before time runs out? Should Lex Luthor be included in the finale somehow without him?
