Rosenbaum Turns Down Return to "Smallville"
EW has learned that actor Michael Rosenbaum has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by producers this season to get him back on The CW's show to reprise his role as Luthor in the finale.
"He has put the show behind him and moved on," says a knowledgeable source. "He's pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved."
There's still a small window of opportunity for Michael to change his mind, with the show wrapping production within the next two months, but it doesn't look likely.
