Michael Rosenbaum Joins BREAKING IN Full-time

Smallville - Michael Rosenbaum

Michael Rosenbaum has been confirmed to star in all seven episodes of Fox’s new comedy BREAKING IN. This workplace comedy is about a high-tech security firm that uses extreme methods to sell their services. The firm is headed by Oz (Christian Slater), a master of manipulation, who leads a team that includes sexy lock-picking, safe-cracking Melanie (Odette Yustman), logistics expert/jokester Cash (Alphonso McAuley), and young computer hacker Cameron Price (Bret Harrison).

As reported by TVLine.com, Rosenbaum will appear as Dutch, Melanie’s “enterprising” boyfriend (he peddles clean urine), who will possibly become part of the firm’s team. Rosenbaum gave such a successful performance in his cameo for the show’s pilot that producers saw potential in the character and decided to include Dutch in the entire season. Another character addition is Oz’s ex-wife, played by Alyssa Milano (Charmed). She appears in episode two in this potentially recurring role.

Breaking In will air Wednesdays at 9:30/8:30c, beginning April 6. (And remember that Rosenbaum’s much anticipated return as Lex Luthor in Smallville’s two-hour series finale airs May 13 on The CW.)
