      Built in 1961 and set on more than half an acre in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood, the house is described as a "Zen-like contemporary" in the listing. The 5,295-square-foot home features French doors that open to a deck, swimming pool and spa. There are six bedrooms and six bathrooms including maid's quarters.

      Williams, 74, starred in "Brian's Song" (1971) and "Lady Sings the Blues" (1972). Since he starred as Han Solo's buddy in "Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi" (1983), Williams has appeared on such TV shows as "General Hospital" (2009), "Diary of a Single Mom" (2009-10) and" White Collar" (2011).

      Public records show Williams bought the property in 1984 for $553,000.

      Michael Carter of Keller Williams Realty in Beverly Hills was the listing agent. Markus Canter and Cristie St. James of Prudential California Realty in Beverly Hills represented the buyer.

        That would be so cool. You go for a swim in the pool and then you press a button on the side and a man with a remote-controlled head set comes and hands you a beach towel.

        Then a slave girl enters and you say, "Now who might you be?"

        I know that neighborhood, it's pretty deep into Beverly Hills, it looks like he's getting a good price for it in this market since it's kinda mid-sized. He's doubling his original investment though, with inflation he paid only $1.2mil in today's dollars. I hope he is only doing this to get away from LA and relax.

        Looks like a nice place, I don't like the colors, and the angles on that pool seem downright dangerous, but the deck looks neat, and it keeps the theme up there of foliage that's a little out of control.

      How did you spend your Saturday?

      Work, ran, ate, napped, went by some friends along with 2-1B, Mrs 2-1B and their padawans. Home, bed, back up for more.

      Cool, you finally found it. I was going to check my local Target to see if they had it, but totally forgot about it when I was there this week.

      Anybody get psyched out by certain opening notes/sounds? This weekend, I got fooled into thinking "Under Pressure" was "Ice Ice Baby"
