Val Kilmer’s Smokin’ ‘Entourage’ House in Altadena Hits the Market (variety.com)

People often gripe that Los Angeles has no history. But scratch the surface even slightly and you’ll find all evidence to the contrary. Case in point – tucked away on East Mariposa Street in the heart of Altadena sits an extraordinary Queen Anne Victorian originally built in 1887 for Andrew McNally, co-founder of the Rand McNally map publishing company. The massive 7,437-square-foot dwelling is largely obscured from view by shrubbery save for a small portion of its rear side and a whisper of its third-story turret which peeks above the pine trees on neighboring Deodara Drive. A hidden gem to most locals, locations managers are certainly familiar with the place as evidenced by its lengthy filming resume, which includes a stint playing the ranch home of the rhyming, gun-toting Sherpa (Val Kilmer) in an early episode of the hit series “Entourage.”
