'Numb3rs' Counts Down to Apollo 11

By Kate O'Hare

December 15, 2006

26747447.jpg

Buzz Aldrin

Fans of the math-based CBS crime procedural "Numb3rs" are very familiar with the outdoor bridge near the show's fictional version of FBI headquarters in Los Angeles, where the FBI agents do many of their expository walk-and-talks.

On this bright November day of filming on the bridge at the show's studios in a former office building in downtown L.A., there's a buzz in the air 8 ... literally.

In production is "Killer Chat," the episode of "Numb3rs" airing Friday, Dec. 15, and the guest star shooting his cameo appearances is Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the surface of the moon in 1969.

The occasion is the departure of Cal Sci (the show's fictional version of Cal Tech) astrophysicist Dr. Larry Fleinhardt (Peter MacNichol) to take his place among the crew of an upcoming space shuttle mission.

"We were thinking," says Cheryl Heuton, who co-created the show with husband Nick Falacci, "how can we send Larry off so that it's special? And somebody said, 'You should get a real astronaut.'"

The producers put out feelers to Aldrin, Armstrong and Capt. Jim Lovell, whose trip to the moon on Apollo 13 went awry in dramatic fashion.

"They sent back that Neil hardly ever does anything," Heuton says. "Jim hardly ever does anything, but Jim did say that he likes the show. He passed only because of scheduling issues. Buzz said he'd do it, so we put Buzz in here."

Aldrin, who says he mainly watches The History Channel and Fox News, had not seen "Numb3rs," but says, "I've talked to a lot of people who have [watched the show], and they think it's a really great show."

Asked what his role is in the episode, Aldrin says, "Larry's been waiting for some indication that he's been selected for a spaceflight. Then it looked like there was some reason in his background where maybe he wouldn't be eligible. So there's disappointment -- typical up-and-down. They reversed the decision. Somebody wrote in a letter or something like that.

"So he was selected, and I guess they're going to have a countdown. When I come to pick him up, we walk off together."

"Memorable," MacNichol says of shooting the scene. "Somewhere he's been is somewhere I've never been and never am likely to get to. Most memorable. He's a sweet man with an elfin smile, and I loved every minute of it."

Larry is the mentor and best friend of Cal Sci mathematician Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz), who uses his math skills to help his brother Don (Rob Morrow), an FBI agent, figure out difficult crimes. While Charlie initially scoffed at Larry's space ambitions, they're something that Judd Hirsch, who plays Don and Charlie's father, Alan, understands very well.

"I wanted to be an astronomer when I was a kid," Hirsch says. "I used to have scrapbooks of the planets. If I was about to go to college [then], and knew about the space program, I'm telling you, I would have been in it. I would have at least been trying."

"What was going on in your life that you didn't know about the space program?" asks Dylan Bruno, who plays FBI Agent Colby Granger.

"I did know about the space program when I grew up," Hirsch says, "but I was already too old. I almost joined the Air Force. I took the test for flying jets off Air Force carriers, but then I chickened out, went home and didn't go back."

Outside Aldrin's dressing room earlier in the day, Hirsch made a point of stopping him on the steps to say hello.

"You know what I really thought?" he says. 'I thought I'd get it wrong. I thought, 'If it's not him, I'm going to look like the prime dope of all time.'

Numbers Rips from Headlines! Plus: A Northern Exposure Reunion

by Ileane Rudolph

070105interview1.jpg

Rob Morrow and Teri Polo, Numbers

Though there are wives aplenty, there's no "big love" in sight on tonight's Numbers (10 pm/ET, on CBS). The polygamy here is definitely not HBO-style, with its separate-but-equal housing and cuddling. "It's a ripped-from-the headlines episode spun off the case of Warren Jeffs, who was on the FBI's Most Wanted List and has dozens of underage wives," explains executive producer Cheryl Heuton. (Jeffs, who was indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit sexual misconduct with a minor in Arizona and charged with rape as an accomplice in Utah, was recently captured.)

In the episode, a severely beaten teen girl found wandering in the desert sends FBI agent Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) looking for her missing "husband," a cult leader called the Prophet, played by W. Earl Brown (aka Dan Dority on Deadwood). The Prophet wants his woman back

Does Larry's Return Mean Kathy Najimy's Numbers Is Up?

by G.J. Donnelly

070427interview1.jpg

Kathy Najimy with David Krumholtz, Numbers

This Friday, April 27, on Numbers (10 pm/ET, CBS), Peter MacNicol returns as Charlie's chum Larry while Six Feet Under's Jeremy Sisto guests as a federal attorney in a story dealing with a death-row inmate whose motives for revealing the locations of missing bodies are questioned by Don (Rob Morrow). Holding down the fort in MacNicol's absence (he defected to 24 for much of the year) was Kathy Najimy, who tonight makes her last appearance of the season as Charlie's academic superior, Millie French.

TV Guide: Were you good at math?

Kathy Najimy: When I was younger I wanted to be a mathematician, but I think that's because I got a good grade on a test once. [Laughs]

TV Guide: Do you think Millie would like to get more involved in the Eppeses' cases?

Najimy: They brought Millie on as the viewers' conscience. Her purpose is not so much as a nemesis, but as a guidepost for Charlie (David Krumholtz). But I think Millie finds the FBI work sexier than the math work.

TV Guide: How will Millie's relationship with Alan, the brothers' father [played by Judd Hirsch], progress?

Najimy: Slowly. Don't you think they should kiss sometime soon? [Laughs] Something needs to happen or Millie's going to move on to one of the brothers. [Laughs]

TV Guide: You've voiced Peggy Hill on King of the Hill for 11 seasons. How has she changed?

Najimy: I don't know if Peggy has changed that much. The great thing about her is the writers don't write characters one-dimensionally. She is wise one moment and ridiculous the next. She's very self-righteous. Her confidence box is overflowing and sometimes it's warranted, sometimes it's not. [Laughs]

TV Guide: In the films Sister Act, Hocus Pocus and Soapdish you play offbeat, energetic characters. Do you seek out these roles?

Najimy: At this stage of the game, I run the gamut. A lot of times on television they show a very successful woman at work who goes home and eats pie filling out of a can with her nine cats! They hardly show successful women with balanced personal lives. That's what I like about Peggy and Millie, and it's what I insist upon. I look for what the character's life is like and whether that really reflects women, or whether it continues some stereotype that doesn't help us at all
