Adept at playing the wiseguy, David Krumholtz has built up an impressive body of credits with roles as smart and sarcastic teens wise beyond their years. With the recent success of the CBS show Numb3rs, in which he stars, Krumholts is enjoying a transition into serious adult roles and is garnering high praise for his performances. David Krumholtz has distinguished himself with both talent and the sort of unconventional looks that allow him to be both nebbish and dashing at the same time.
He got his start at age 13 after attending an open call for Herb Gardner's semi-autobiographical stage drama "Conversations With My Father", winning the role of the youthful incarnation of one of the sons of a bartender (Judd Hirsch). A featured role in "Life With Mikey" as an obnoxious child star marked his film debut and was followed by a memorable turn as Wednesday Addams' (Christina Ricci) socially stunted love interest in "Addams Family Values" (both 1993). He went on to be featured in "The Santa Clause" (1994), offering a stand out performance as the elf who informs Tim Allen of his duties as the jolly one's replacement.
He broke out of the children's movie genre with "The Ice Storm" (1997), directed by Ang Lee, playing Francis Davenport, the Upper East Side brat who gets Katie Holmes drunk. The following year, he earned critical praise as Natasha Lyonne's older brother in Tamara Jenkins' "The Slums of Beverly Hills". With a part that included an unforgettable scene where he sings Luck Be a Lady while clad only in white underpants, Krumholtz turned in an impressive comedic performance. Krumholtz's profile further increased when he was cast in the superior teen comedy "Ten Things I Hate About You" (1999) as an enterprising high school student who helps lovesick new kid Joseph Gordon-Levitt win the heart of his beloved Bianca (Larisa Oleynik). The film was one of the genre's more critically and commercially successful excursions, and it provided a nice complement to Krumholtz's other film that year, Barry Levinson's critically praised "Liberty Heights".
The following years also found David in films like "How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog" (2000) with Kenneth Branagh, and "The Mexican" (2001) with Brad Pitt. But it was the role of Yussel in "Liberty Heights" that brought David to the attention of actor and filmmaker Edward Burns, who then cast him in the 2001 independent movie "Sidewalks of New York". Playing the romantic and slightly obsessive Benny, David was on a path to larger, more complex film roles. In "Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie" (2002) premiered on FX Networks that America got to see David in a leading role. "Big Shot" was a true story based on the Arizona State University basketball fixing scandal of the Early 1990s. David played Benny Silman, a college student and campus bookmaker who was jailed for his part in shaving points off key ASU basketball games. Benny was unlike any character David played prior, and earned well deserved critical praise for his performance, proving that he was not just a sidekick.
Also in 2002 David reprised one of his most endearing roles as Bernard the Elf in "The Santa Clause 2". After a year of less than successfull television projects, he returned to the screen with "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" (2004) and a brief but memorable part in the Academy Award winning picture, "Ray" (2004) along side Jamie Foxx. In September of 2005, he was seen in Joss Whedon's science fiction film "Serenity" as Mr. Universe.
Currently, David is enjoying his time working on the hit TV series NUMB3RS. He plays Charlie Eppes, a mathematical genius who helps his brother Don (Rob Morrow), an FBI agent, solve crimes using math. The cast of NUMB3RS also includes Judd Hirsch, the man who gave David his start in acting back in 1992 on the Broadway stage. Television critic Matt Roush (TV Guide) called David's work on NUMB3RS "probably his best TV work to date."
