Michael Behrenshauser is an actor in Scott Pincus's films, best known for his role as The Paleman in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, and the weatherman in A Fateful Forecast. Initially hesitant to appear in Scott's films, Michael made his acting debut with a cameo in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo in June 2015. In February 2017, he returned to acting with his role in A Fateful Forecast, and that summer he returned as The Paleman for Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption, in which he was the main antagonist.
In early 2015, Michael was asked to make a cameo in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, but he refused the offer numerous times as he wasn't a fan of acting. On the first day of the film's production, Michael agreed to make a cameo as The Paleman. He filmed a brief scene with Brandon Archibald, who played the film's main antagonist, Biscuit Savage. Later that year, Michael agreed to make an appearance as The Paleman in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam.
Filming for Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam commenced in May 2016, with Michael set to film his cameo alongside Russell Parkinson at some point in the next few weeks. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, Michael was unable to film his scenes, and The Paleman was cut frm the story.
In September 2016, discussions occurred between Michael and Scott about the possibility of making a fourth Bread's Crumbs film, with Michael reprising his role as The Paleman. Michael agreed to the role, though it wasn't until December that the film was made official.
In February 2017, Michael filmed a video project with LordStarscream100 for their Natural Disasters class. Titled A Fateful Forecast, the short film featured Michael as a weatherman frantically describing a series of unnatural disasters spreading out across the country. Despite using a teleprompter to film the video, Michael improvised parts of his dialogue.
The following month, Michael was officially announced to be returning as The Paleman, this time serving as the main antagonist of Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption. He began filming the project in May 2017, and finished most of his scenes in early June. He completed his role for the project after filming several short scenes in July, with the film ultimately being released in August.
