David Krumholtz has landed another pilot, after the cancellation of his latest series 'Partners,' which lasted a mere ten episodes. Krumholtz will appear in the CBS pilot 'Brenda Forever' in a guest starring capacity, however should the series be picked up, Krumholtz will likely be kept on as a regular.
Krumholtz is best known for his starring role of Charlie in the drama series 'Numb3rs,' which ran for 119 episodes. The actor transitioned to TV comedy with several guest appearances on 'Marcy,' 'Raising Hope' and 'Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23' but still kept his dramatic chops with appearances on 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' and 'The Newsroom.'
'Brenda Forever' is about a thirty-one year-old woman named Brenda, naturally, who "does her own thing." The pilot will focus on how Brenda went from being a chubby, confident thirteen year-old to the woman that she is today. The title character will be played by Ellie Kemper, of 'The Office' fame. So where does Krumholtz fit in? Krumholtz plays the best friend of Kemper's Brenda, meaning it's possible we could see a child-aged version of his character as well.
'Brenda Forever' also stars Stephnie Weir ('MADtv') and newcomer Da’vine Joy Randolph. Here's hoping Krumholtz' latest ends up closer to 'Numb3rs' than 'Partners.'
