We're a little late with this item, but actor Peter Gallagher and his wife, Paula Harwood, have paid exactly $3,000,000 for a 5,225-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood.

Back on March 20, Gallagher, 51, and his wife purchased the house at 1130 N. Bundy Avenue, which was built in 1948, according to public records. The six-bedroom house has four baths and a pool, all on a 0.62-acre tract.

We know that Gallagher is beloved for his portrayal of aging surfer and lawyer Sandy Cohen on "The O.C.," from 2003 to 2007, but for our money, he was at his best as Buddy Kane, aka, "The King of Real Estate," in 1999's "American Beauty."

Gallagher and Harwood have been longtime homeowners on the East Coast, most recently owning a co-op unit in the building at 171 W. 71st Street on Manhattan's Upper West Side, according to public records.

Their Brentwood purchase was recorded on Mar. 30.
