Actor David Krumholtz is still known to many people as Charlie Eppes, the FBI-advising mathematical genius he played for six years on CBS’ NUMB3RS.

Now Krumholtz is back on CBS in the half-hour comedy PARTNERS, created by David Kohan and Max Mutchnik (of WILL AND GRACE), which is based on the writers’ lifelong friendship. In PARTNERS, Krumholtz plays Joe, a heterosexual architect who is partnered at work with his gay lifelong best friend Louis, played by Michael Urie, and …Read On »
