Pilot Scoop: David Krumholtz Does Playboy

Former Numb3rs star David Krumholtz is set for a co-starring role in NBC’s drama pilot Playboy.

In the project — set at the Playboy Club in Chicago circa 1963 — Krumholtz will play the club’s general manager, a young Albert Brooks-esque bottom-line kind of guy.

The cast also includes Amber Heard (Zombieland), Naturi Naughton (Fame) and Laura Benanti (Eli Stone) as Playboy bunnies.

Krumholtz is also developing Igotchaback, a half-hour single-camera comedy for FX about an up-and-coming music industry manager tasked with representing an aging rap star mired knee-deep in an existential crisis. It’s loosely based on the lives of Wu Tang Clan founding member GZA and his publicist Heathcliff Berru. Krumholtz is executive producing and may star.

    Why?!??! Pretty safe to say no one will watch this show

  2. Steven says:

    I’d watch this. I love Amber Heard and this looks interesting.

  3. John says:

    You had me at Laura Benanti. Think she’ll be the bunny that dreams of being a singer? My ears sure hope so!

  4. John says:

    Oh, and since Krumholtz is EP on the other show, does that mean his role in this one is in “2nd position”?

  5. Scott says:

    I loved Numb3rs and hope that David Krumholtz has more luck than Rob Morrow did with The Whole Truth.

    Unfortunately, because this new show is on NBC the signs are not good.

    I hope he does well. Someone this talented (and hot) deserves more recognition.
