Actor-director David Schwimmer has put his home in Hancock Park on the market at $10.7 million. The roughly 11,000-square-foot gated Mediterranean sits on slightly more than an acre. The house was built in 1926 by architectural firm Koerner & Gage. Along with John Austin and Frederick M. Ashley, they also designed Beverly Hills City Hall. The restored main home features nine bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wood-paneled library, a den, a state-of-the-art screening room, a formal dining room, two powder rooms, five fireplaces and a butler area.

David Schwimmer is describing an awkward moment that occurred during a recent rehearsal for "Turnaround" at the Coast Playhouse and the creative suggestion that co-star Jonathan Silverman made on how to break the ice. In "Turnaround," Roger Kumble's extremely dark new comedy about Hollywood that opens Wednesday at West Hollywood's Coast Playhouse, Schwimmer plays an unscrupulous industry sleazeball who'd sell his soul for a six-figure deal, his name above the title or a line of good cocaine.

Despite its resemblance to "The Graduate," a '60s movie in which a struggling college graduate falls for a girl but is seduced by her mother, most kids said "The Pallbearer" reminded them of the television show "Friends," in which David Schwimmer plays Ross, one of a group of struggling, postgraduate buddies. The movie "was, like, 'Hi, I'm Ross, but I'm in a movie,' " said Andrea Wallace, 18, of Coto de Caza.

Re "Hollywood Is Taking Charities for a Ride," Dec. 10: Frankly, I agree that celebrities should donate their services free to these charities -- as many do. However, Steve Lopez should aim his gun turrets at the event organizers who are dangling the perks instead of taking cheap shots at David Schwimmer. Calling Schwimmer a "weasel" and degrading his work makes me wonder who is really lacking the true spirit of charity. Are you listening, Steve? Nonie Breen Calabasas Hills

Actor David Schwimmer's second feature-directing outing, "Trust," shows clear commitment to its vital and sensitive subject matter. Unfortunately, this well-acted cautionary tale is hampered by a lack of visual finesse and a script (by Andy Bellin and Robert Festinger) in need of a narrative rethink and a dialogue polish. In suburban Chicago, the seemingly idyllic Cameron family — ad exec dad Will (Clive Owen, excellent); Realtor mother Lynn (Catherine Keener); and three kids, including 14-year-old Annie (a fine Liana Liberato)

Sometimes, Simon Pegg betrays too much suppleness, physically and otherwise, to convince you that he's packing a paunch as Dennis the lovelorn, chain-smoking slacker in "Run, Fat Boy, Run." But he's such a good actor that he makes you believe anything -- anything, that is, except the notion that any sentient male Earthling, no matter how stupid or scared, could leave a pregnant woman looking like Thandie Newton standing at the altar.

You've got to hand it to David Schwimmer. Not only did he sign on as an executive producer of "Kissing a Fool," he also turned over the picture to his co-star, Jason Lee, who made a strong impression in last year's "Chasing Amy." That's because Schwimmer's Chicago sportscaster, Max, is too often obnoxious rather than likable while Lee gets considerable opportunity to reveal charm as Max's best pal Jay, a budding novelist.

Paparazzi aplenty thronged the sidewalks outside the Coast Playhouse on Wednesday night. The occasion? The star-studded world premiere of Roger Kumble's "Turnaround," featuring David Schwimmer, best known as the diffident Ross Geller on the long-running television series "Friends." Such hoopla surrounding a sub-99-seat theater venue is rare. However, does the play inside stand the glare of public scrutiny as well as the tanned, toned celebrities who turned out on opening night?
