With his diverse resume, actor Alfred Molina can clearly act in any type of film. But the versatile actor, known for diverse roles ranging from Boogie Nights opposite Mark Wahlberg to Spiderman 2 with Tobey Maguire, seems to have some serious real estate savvy too. He just listed his five-bed, five-bath home in the historic Sunset Square neighborhood of West Hollywood, CA for a cool $2.95 million. But that price tag will seem all the cooler when you hear this: He bought the home back in 1995, for just $565,000. That means Molina is set to make well over $2 million on the sale, if manages to fetch anywhere near his asking price. Now that’s a good investment!
