David Krumholtz is known for his vast array of characters over the many years, most notably in “Numb3rs” with Judd Hirsch (who played Krumholtz’s father). This summer he co-starred in the ensemble comedy “This Is the End,” and he recently starred in “Partners” and recurred on “The Newsroom.” Other TV includes “Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie” and “The Playboy Club.” Film credits include “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” “Superbad,” “Walk Hard,” “Bobby,” “Ray,” “Serenity,” “The Santa Clause 2,” “Slums of Beverly Hills,” “The Mexican,” “Sidewalks of New York,” “Scorched,” “Ten Things I Hate About You,” all three “Harold and Kumar” films and Barry Levinson’s acclaimed “Liberty Heights.”
DeVito and Hirsch are reuniting on the Ahmanson stage 30 years after they both starred in the landmark television series “Taxi.” In “The Sunshine Boys,” Willie Clark (DeVito) and Al Lewis (Hirsch) are former vaudevillian stars who, after a partnership of over 40 years, are no longer speaking to each other. When Clark’s nephew, Ben (Krumholtz), gets a lucrative television offer for Lewis and Clark to give one last show, the two are lured into a grudging reunion and sparks fly in this classic comedy of showbiz and friendship.
