From 2005 to 2010, ‘Numbers,’ entertained audiences on CBS through its six seasons. The show, created by Nicolas Falacci and Cheryl Heuton, featured Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz as brothers solving FBI cases using mathematics.
While it had some already-established actors in the cast, the show helped some names rise to fame. Still, in 2010, CBS canceled ‘Numbers’ after the ratings significantly dropped, opening the door to new gigs for some of the cast members.
Rob Morrow As Don Eppes
Already known for his role in the ’90s series’ Northern Exposure,’ Morrow portrayed a very different character from Dr. Joel Fleischman. Although Gabriel Macht was the initial name chosen for the part, he played the FBI’s lead agent in Violent Crimes Division for 118 episodes.
The Actor’s Gig After ‘Numbers’
Shortly after the show’s end, Morrow appeared on HBO’s ‘Entourage’ as the attorney of Ari Gold. In addition to film projects, the actor took part in TV shows like ‘American Crime Story,’ where he played an attorney who was a key figure in the OJ Simpson case. He last appeared as a guest star in ‘Shining Vale’ and ‘Super Pumped.’
David Krumholtz’s Part In The Show
David Krumholtz had a well-established career in Hollywood before ‘Numbers.’ He started acting at 15 and had a series of roles in films like Disney’s ‘The Santa Claus’ and ‘Slums Of Beverly Hills.’ As he also appeared in TV shows, the actor took on the role of Professor Charlie Eppes, as the character helped his brother solve crimes through mathematical modeling.
Krumholtz’s Career Following The Show’s Finale
Although he appeared in more comedic roles throughout his career, Krumholtz went for more dramatic and serious characters after ‘Numbers’ ended. He featured in TV series such as ‘The Newsroom,’ ‘Mom,’ ‘The Good Wife,’ ‘Master Of None,’ and HBO’s ‘The Deuce,’ while his film catalog included the likes of ‘This Is The End,’ ‘The Judge,’ ‘Hail,’ and ‘The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs.’ The actor’s latest role was Isidor Isaac Rabi in 2023’s ‘Oppenheimer.’
Judd Hirsch And Alimi Ballard After ‘Numbers’
Most of the other cast members also found success in different projects following the ‘Numbers’ cancellation. Judd Hirsch appeared in films like ‘This Must Be The Place,’ ‘Tower Heist,’ and ‘The Muppets,’ and TV shows such as ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘The Big Bang Theory.’ Meanwhile, Alimi Ballard secured roles in ‘The Fast And The Furious’ franchise and the CBS crime drama ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.’
