David Krumholtz has landed a double bill with producer Judd Apatow that involves Universal Pictures and Columbia Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The “Numb3rs” star will write and topline Attorneys at Raw for Universal and Apatow Productions. He also has signed on to co-star in Columbia’s John C. Reilly comedy vehicle Walk Hard, which Apatow also is producing.
Based on Krumholtz’s pitch, “Attorneys” is described as a comedy that focuses on two young attorneys who decide they want to become rappers.
Meanwhile, Krumholtz will play a slippery record producer in Walk Hard, which chronicles the messy life of fictional music legend Dewey Cox (Reilly). Jake Kasdan is directing from a screenplay he wrote with Apatow. Jenna Fischer and Kristen Wiig also star.
