David Krumholtz's Secret to Escaping Type-Casting: Playing His Own Grandmother
The concept for the new IFC comedy "Gigi Does It" is easy to explain, but also bizarre: A feisty Boca Raton grandmother gets a new lease on life. She also happens to be played by 37-year-old actor David Krumholtz, who normally you'd recognize from projects ranging from "Addams Family Values" to the CBS procedural "Numb3rs"... except he's playing Gigi with the help of pounds of prosthetic makeup. Read More: Review: 'The Spoils Before Dying' Is Two Pounds of Fun In a Three-Pound Bag Produced by Krumholtz, Ricky Mabe and Tim Gibbons, "Gigi Does It" was originally inspired by a project Mabe created that featured web videos of Krumholtz in character.

While David Krumholtz’s most prominent television role to date has been in the CBS show Numb3rs, the performer has also displayed an adeptness in comedic roles, from movies such as Superbad to guest appearances on Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 and The League, as well as a leading role in the short-lived sitcom Partners.

Krumholtz is slated to play the titular character, a 76 year old woman named Gertrude Rotblum, aka Gigi, who comes across a secret stash of millions and decides to use it to gain experiences she missedo out on previously.

IFC announced on Wednesday that it has commissioned a presentation (i.e. a whittled-down pilot) for Gigi’s Bucket List, which follows the titular septuagenarian from Boca Raton, Fla. as she pursues everything she deprived herself of throughout her life, after discovering millions in her dead husband’s bank account.

David Krumholtz Explains Why He’s Dressing Like An Old Lady And Talking About Weather

Between films like The Big Ask to 10 Things I Hate About You and television’s long-running series, Numb3rs, chances are you’ve seen a David Krumholtz joint. His latest project has him dressing in drag and talking about cumulus clouds, which is indeed a 180 from Bernard the elf.

Weather From is an online weather channel where daily outlooks are delivered by a delightfully frisky older woman named Gigi aka Krumholtz after four and a half hours of makeup. The comedy website is a new creation from Barry Sonders, Zach Golden and Ricky Mabe and features 35 pre-taped segments with forecasts from the National Weather Service. For Krumholtz, wearing prosthetics was a dream come true, and transforming into a fiesty retiree gave him a chance to pay tribute to his own grandmother. VH1 spoke to the actor about his latest gig, the sexual exploits of the Aarp set and a long-awaited grudge

The Wild Hunt (2009) Movie Review

The Wild Hunt” is a Canadian production from 2009, which having enjoyed a successful and award winning run at festivals now arrives on region 2 DVD. Marking the debut of writer director Alexandre Franchi, the film is set in the world of LARPing, or for the uninitiated (this reviewer included), Live Action Role Playing, which basically involves people dressing up as fantasy characters and running around in the woods with rubber weapons. Having been compared to “Lord of the Flies”, the film revolves around the premise of LARPers taking things too far, leading to violent and tragic consequences. The plot kicks off with a young guy called Erik Magnusson (Ricky Mabe, “Trailer Park of Terror”) falling out with his girlfriend Evelyn (Tiio Horn, “The Theatre Bizarre”) over her leaving for a weekend to join in a Larp game with his older brother Bjorn (Mark A.

The Wild Hunt (2009)

Directed by: Alexandre Franchi

Written by: Alexandre Franchi, Mark A. Krupa

Cast: Mark A. Krupa, Ricky Mabe, Tiio Horn, Trevor Hayes

As humans we are in constant conflict with ourselves.

We are constantly fighting against the social confines we find ourselves in (i.e. having a job, paying rent, monogamy) and our greater animal instincts, those supposed primal urges that we have been taught to so neatly oppress. This is exactly where humor and terror collide in Alexandre Franchi's The Wild Hunt, a movie that continually teases its audience as to where our social boundaries are drawn.

Based in and around the world of Larp, The Wild Hunt examines the blurred lines that occur when a scruffy hipster named Erik (Ricky Mabe) crashes a weekend long event in hopes of retrieving his girlfriend, Lyn(Tiio Horn), who's been distancing herself from Erik for some time. Also at the weekend

"We're on a ski trip, on our way back home and end up crashing into a mountain side and getting covered up with a whole bunch of snow in an avalanche. It's about what happens in the car after we all realize we're stuck down there," he explained.

Peepers (2010)

Once again, Peepers, a film I saw on Sunday at the Just for Laughs Film Festival, is a proof that in Canadian cinema, there are no taboo topics. As a matter of fact, Peepers adds itself to the growing list of smartly written Canadian comedies that deal with sexual desire.

A group of peeping toms led by Steve Sherman (Joe Cobden), a loser who lives in his mom's basement, enjoys taking Montreal's chilly rooftops during the night. Through the unshuttered windows, they want to have a glimpse at a “hottie hookup,” a “panty party” or a “big booty buffet”. However, the peeping toms' life is about to change when Annette Fulvish (Janine Theriault), an academic interested by "male gaze", enters the domain of peeping, which is dominated by men.

At the same time, some members in the group begin to question their interest for peeping. Bobby (Ricky Mabe), the youngest member of the group,

'Peepers' Will Premiere at the Montreal Just for Laughs Film Festival

As usual, Montreal's Just for Laughs Film Festival has two Canadian films in store and they both come from the province of Quebec. The one we're going to talk is called Peepers, a comedy that follows three peeping toms from Montreal.

Led by the eagle-eyed Steve Sherman (Joe Cobden), a rag-tag group of Peepers take to Montreal’s chilly rooftops under cover of night. They’re on the prowl for the perfect peep—desperate to glimpse a “hottie hookup,” a “panty party” or a “big booty buffet” through unshuttered windows.

But their lives are about to change. Enter Annette Fulvish (Janine Theriault), a brazen academic who turns the tables by setting her sights on the Peepers themselves. Soon it’s a battle royale for rooftop supremacy—will these die-hard obsessives manage to defend their turf, or will Peeping as they know it never be the same?

Afternoon Meme: Semi Precious Weapons Prepare for Spotlight, A Younger Magneto, and "Being Human" USA Casting

Plus Buffy's Nicholas Brendan's new gig, marriage equality in Iceland, and McDonalds goes gay again?

A moment to mention Senator Robert C. Byrd, who passed away last night. Senator Byrd was the longest serving member of Congress in history. He grew up about three miles from where I’m typing this. He was a product of his era, but wasn’t afraid to change his mind, slowly, first on race, and he was even now evolving on gay issues, despite his past history. I’ve met him many times, and he was a kind and decent man.

Michael Fassbender is going to star in X-Men: First Class as a young Magneto opposite James McAvoy as Professor X. His hairline already matches Sir Ian’s.

Robin Williams wants to play The Riddler in Christopher Nolan’s next Dark Knight movie. Granted, no one has asked him, Nolan hasn’t named the villain for the movie,
