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.
