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.

Actor David Schwimmer's second feature-directing outing, "Trust," shows clear commitment to its vital and sensitive subject matter.

It's a nice life, if also an odd premise for a career: He is as famous for what he did as he is anonymous for what he's been doing. He burns to work with his heroes, like filmmakers Mike Nichols and Sydney Pollack. He's back to auditioning, as he did in his early 20s, when he was a waiter at various Daily Grills in the L.A. area, wondering whether he ought to quit Hollywood and go back to Chicago, where he'd co-founded a theater company -- Lookingglass, still extant -- as a student at Northwestern.
