Michael began his acting career in high school by landing a role in a play on a bet.  Born in Oceanside, Michael really did well in high school in drama classes.  He performed in college productions such as The Heidi Chronicles, and also acting in regional thearters during his summer breaks.  After graduation Michael moved to New York, where he quickly landed roles in off-Broadway productions and small independent films.

When Michael got the part of Lex Luther, he shaved his blond locks for the role he seems born to play in the series of Smallville.
