I’m Michael Rosenbaum, I’ve spent the better part of the last two decades in and out of film and television - mostly known for playing the bald dude on the show Smallville. I’m the guy that you probably don’t know by name, but when you see my face you might say “oh, that guy from that thing.” I’ve befriended some of the most talented people in the business, but it wasn’t until I started inviting them into my home that I realized, I didn’t really know these people. What started as me having some fun, quickly evolved into something I’ve fallen in love with. What I’ve discovered is that all these people aren’t that different from you and me. They have the same insecurities and flaws that we all deal with every day. In a dark, yet enlightening way... I find a lot of comfort in that. I invite you all to join me while I get inside each of these fascinating people.

    True Blood’s DEBORAH ANN WOLL: Confidence Log

    Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood, Daredevil) joins us this week to share her process as an actor in taking pride and enjoyment in your performance, but not lingering on it after the fact and letting the opinions of others make you defensive in your next role. This idea of other’s opinions gets expanded as Deborah shares her experience being bullied as a teenager and how the isolation and trauma still lingers with her to this day. We also talk unfinished Marvel projects with Daredevil and the Punisher, guarding your confidence, and the legacy of True Blood.

    Napoleon Dynamite JON HEDER: Constantly an Outsider

    Napoleon Dynamite JON HEDER: Constantly an Outsider

    Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory) joins us this week and talks about the feeling of ‘constantly being an outsider’ coming to Hollywood from a humble upbringing in the PNW and then heading back to Washington after years in the film industry. Jon shares some crazy stories from his family history that helped shape him into the anxiety and stress free man that he is today. We also get into (of course) our shared bond of horror, why Napoleon Dynamite never had a sequel, and Jon’s memorable run-ins with Will Ferrell, James Cameron, and Ali G.

    Smile’s KYLE GALLNER and SOSIE BACON: Building Chemistry

    Kyle Gallner (Outsiders, Smallville) and Sosie Bacon (13 Reasons Why) join me this week to talk about the genius of their new horror film SMILE and what went into the project to get it bumped into theaters from its streaming origins. On top of talking about the twists and turns on and off the screen with Smile, Kyle and Sosie talks about what sorts of insecurities and nerves they carry with them going into every role. Sosie clears up misconceptions about her parents’ (Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick) role in her desire to become an actor and what it was like growing up with negative influences in Manhattan. Kyle shares his suburban bad boy roots and talks about how the stigma around actors performing in horror roles has been obliterated nowadays.

Best Podcast Available!!

Inside of You is hands down my favorite podcast to listen to. Michael Rosenbaum not only welcomes diverse and appealing guests onto his show, but he meets each guest with a genuine empathy and sincere intellectual curiosity that drives the conversations forward. Michael has an innate ability to create a safe and comfortable space for his guests to open up about personal conflicts they face which can be difficult for anyone, let alone celebrities where admitting to anxiety or depression can seem taboo. Hearing how his guests not only face the same challenges and personal difficulties that all people do, but doing it in a positive and productive way must be as therapeutic for his guests as it is for us as listeners. Definitely a show you’ll want to listen to every episode of.
