Michael Rosenbaum's new show, Breaking In, hosted a set visit for TV journalists today, during filming of an episode in which the security firm is hired to protect a copy of Goonies 2 that is being screened at Comic-Con.

Breaking In needs more Michael Rosenbaum. I have a fever and the only prescription is more Rosenbaum.
Heading on over to the Breaking In set to talk to Christian Slater, Bret Harrison, Odette Yustman, Michael Rosenbaum and more.
Oh, Christian Slater. I will always love you because of The Heathers and you lived up to my high expectations.
Breaking In's version of Comic-Con is amaaaazing.
You can't get my hopes up like this, Breaking In!
My all-time favorite picture. It's me protesting in Sloth's honor! #goonies4eva
Breaking In's version of Comic-Con. I want to live here.
Odette Yustman liked my sparkly nail polish. She's cool like that.
Rosenbaum just entertained the set by singing some Michael McDonald. Respect.
Bret Harrison and I bonded over Idol. We're both rooting for Paul McDonald. #goodtaste
[Breaking In is] on FOX. It premieres April 6th. Very funny.
Um, Michael Rosenbaum is awesome and says penis a lot. Smallville fans will love him as Dutch on Breaking In.
Tierney also sat down to chat with Michael one-on-one. A few of my favorite quotes:
He describes [Dutch] as "complete douche on the outside, nice guy on the inside," who wears Uggs, bleaches his hair and wears two watches at the same time.
"The first fan reaction would be like, 'I like him better as Lex. He looks better bald. He shouldn't be on this show. He should be Lex forever,'" he teases affectionately. "that would probably be their first reaction. Hopefully some of them will go, 'Oh, he's actually kind of funny. This is good,' or maybe not. I think one thing they'll appreciate is that whatever character I do, I go balls out."
Obviously, we had to be greedy and ask Rosenbaum for even more scoop on the series finale of "Smallville," and while he wouldn't reveal too much -- like if he shot any scenes with anyone besides Tom Welling -- he did say you will be seeing more of Lex Luthor than you might have originally thought.
"We did four different things. Two nice scenes and then two other specialty things that I won't tell you about. I'm a part of the finale and I think it's important."

Last call for questions for Michael Rosenbaum/@mrosenbaum711 on my Breaking In set visit. I hear he was on a show called Smallville? ;)
On Breaking In set. Under the weather Christian Slater elbow bumped instead of shaking hands. Sick Joshua Jackson did same on Fringe set once.
Breaking in is doing an episode set at Comic Con, which is why I just took a photo with Ecto-1!

On the Breaking In set. Odette Yustman *may* be in costume as a Sexy Popcorn Vendor.
Breaking In spoiler: Bret Harrison is wearing a mustache. Also, Odette Yustman is pretty.
Sadly, Odette Yustman is a Mets fan.
True Fact: Michael Rosenbaum does a reasonably good Michael McDonald impression.
And if you haven't seen them already, here are two promo pics of Michael as Dutch, courtesy of SpoilerTV. You can see a peek of his Man Uggs in the second one. :) Click for BIGGER.
