Michael Rosenbaum's Quotes

  • I was pretty much a homebody; didn't really go to school dances, never went to a prom. I was a bit of a loner, a geek.
  • Lex refers to his past that he was this bald headed freak at an elite prep school. Well, I was, like the shortest kid in my high school - really nervous and kind of weird - so I can relate.
  • I was a mechanic at a go-cart place, a deejay at a roller rink, a telemarketer in New York, a grocery bagger. I worked at Pet Land Discounts in New York, cleaning up bird crap at seven in the morning.
