Michael Rosenbaum is, of course, known for playing Lex Luthor in the Smallville TV series, but the actor also has a hero on his resume with The Flash.

Michael Rosenbaum voiced The Flash for the Justice League cartoon and Justice League: Doom animated movie.

Cinekatz.com caught up with Rosenbaum and chatted about his thoughts on new Lex Luthor Jesse Eisenberg as well as which DC characters he would want to play if given the chance.

Michael Rosenbaum states he would like to play The Joker either as a voice or on screen.

I think I’d be a fantastic Joker. I think I could crush The Joker.

Both [on screen and voice], actually. I don’t think anyone can top Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker. I don’t think that can ever be topped. I’d give it a shot, don’t get me wrong. The voice would be fun. And I think I could be Batman. Look, these are the ones I’d enjoy, but I’d do anything. Bruce Timm would always ask me to do this and that. It was always a treat “do one of your impressions”. I got to do many voices over the time. It was very fun.

Regarding Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Rosenbaum offered the following advice:

First off, I think he’s a really good actor. I don’t think he needs any advice from me, he’ll do his homework. Do it your way. I’m sure Zack [Snyder] has an idea. He cast you for reason. Jesse’s a good actor. He’ll do it his own way and that’s the best way. If you can do it your way, if you succeed or fail, you succeed because you are being original. If you’re trying to emulate someone, you’ll always be compared. That’s why I didn’t want to be compared during Smallville. I didn’t watch any of Gene Hackman as Lex. He’ll be fantastic. Great actor, no problem with it.
