David Krumholtz Joins Michael Urie In CBS Comedy Pilot Partners
It was looking like NBC’s The Playboy Club was going to put David Krumholtz back on television as a series regular, and it did up until the show was cancelled. Perhaps he’ll have better luck with CBS. The Numb3rs star has been cast in a comedy pilot at the network.
According to Deadline, Krumholtz is set to join Michael Urie in the CBS comedy pilot Partners. Written by Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, the multicamera comedy follows two lifelong friends who are also business partners and architects. Urie is set to play Louis, who is gay, while Krumholtz will play Charlie, who’s straight. While Sophia Bush is set to play Charlie’s fiance, Brandon Routh is Louis’ partner.
As a fan of both Krumholtz and Urie, especially when it comes to the comedies they’ve starred in (Ugly Betty for Urie, Superbad and the Santa Clause movies for Krumholtz), I’ll be very interested to see how things go for this one, and if it goes to series, what kind of dynamic the two actors have as “partners” on the show.
