Numb3rs: Robert Voets

Who’d’ve thunk Rob Morrow would be more believable as a tough-guy FBI agent than David Krumholtz is as his genius brother? Contrasted with a restrained Morrow, Krumholtz, while able, may relish his logic lectures a bit too much.

EXTRAS In a featurette, Morrow calls the show ” Rain Man but with an extra Jew,” and Krumholtz cops to failing algebra. Another reveals that Morrow and Judd Hirsch weren’t in the original, unaired pilot. And co-creator Cheryl Heuton admits that an inspiration was the ”Way Cool Scientist” segment of Bill Nye the Science Guy.
