Playing the awkwardly awesome McLovin in Superbad
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large backyard
Christopher Mintz-Plasse, the actor who played the quirky and lovable one-named lady killer McLovin in the hit “Superbad,” has purchased himself a sweet little starter home in Los Angeles! Public property records show that Mintz-Plasse plopped down $515,000 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 924-square-foot home. The deal closed on January 9, 2013. While the property isn’t super luxurious, it’s a nice, cozy place to call home for a guy who got his big break in a major way. According to reports, the actor auditioned with two high school friends for the part of Fogell, aka “McLovin,” in the film Superbad despite the fact he didn’t even have professional head shots (he ended up taking one with his camera phone just before the audition). Since Superbad, Mintz-Plasse has had starring roles in Role Models, Year One, Kick-Ass, and Fright Night.
Instead of going the typical “child actor” route of blowing all his dough on a flashy pad, Mintz-Plasse started small, not far from where he grew up. His new place is a remodeled home in a prime Woodland Hills location with a large front lawn and brick walkways. Upon entering the space, you’ll find rich wood floors, beautiful moldings, recessed lighting, and an open feel. The kitchen has custom-built cabinets, black granite countertops, updated kitchen appliances, a tile floor, french doors, and views to the backyard. The master suite has a walk-in closet with even more custom storage, french doors facing out to rear grounds, and a remodeled master bath with double sinks and a large stall shower. The home’s second bath has also been remodeled. The backyard is complete with a fantastic redwood deck, brick masonry, a large lawn/play area, and a covetable detached bonus room, which also doubles as a guest room.
We’re sure Mintz-Plasse is McLovin his new home!
