David Krumholtz was paired up alongside a host of “Playboy Club” bunnies last fall on NBC, but this coming fall season, the former “Numb3rs” star has just one gorgeous lady in his TV life – Sophia Bush — in “Partners.”
“My girlfriend is played by the amazing Sophia Bush, one of the hotter women in the world,” he told Access Hollywood at the CBS Upfronts in New York City earlier in the week.
“And she flaunts it,” David, who plays Joe on “Partners,” joked. “She holds it over me, as she should, and I kind of bow to her. I’m kind of a little frightened and intimidated to work with [her].”
And when Access suggested it’s not bad to have to kiss and cuddle Sophia, who plays Ali, Joe’s fiancee on the show, David agreed.
“Not bad to kiss and make out with, yes,” he laughed. “I’m married, so that’s all I’m gonna say.”
But while Sophia is Joe’s fiancee, it’s “Ugly Betty’s” Michael Urie, who plays Louis, Joe’s partner on the show, which was inspired by the friendship and working relationship of David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, who created “Will & Grace.”
“Partners” actually finds David and Michael playing business partners in the architect world, and it takes a look at their strong friendship.
“It’s a mega bromance. It’s an ultra bromance,” David said.
But Michael’s Louis isn’t without love in “Partners.”
His boyfriend on the show – Wyatt – is being played by former “Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh.
“My partner is Brandon Routh… The very, very homely Brandon Routh plays Wyatt, the vegan nurse,” Michael said, joking about Brandon’s looks that are anything but homely. “My character doesn’t like that he’s a nurse. He hopes that he’ll eventually be promoted to doctor… and he also doesn’t drink, so it’s a very funny dynamic between them.”
“Partners” will air Mondays at 8:30 PM this fall on CBS.
