David Krumholtz is using the art of drag to become an online weatherman. The actor, perhaps best known for his lead role in the CBS series Numb3rs, has launched WeatherFrom.com, a website where he tells users their local weather while dressed as a stereotypical Jewish grandma named Gigi.

"The character's kind of based on my grandmother, and your grandmother, and grandmothers all over the world who have something »

Nearly two years after getting engaged, Krumholtz and Britting tied the knot May 22, 2010, at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel served as groomsmen »
