Actor Tom Bresnahan has paid $1,680,000 to purchase a 3,218-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Silver Lake area. broke the story a few weeks back of the purchase in late December 2008 by the 43-year-old Bresnahan, who has had scattered, one-off roles on lots of big-name TV shows for the last 20-plus years -- from "Family Ties" to "Private Practice."

Built in 1935, Bresnahan's new house was designed by famed architect Paul Williams (although Blockshopper did not mention this very important point). The three-bedroom house has three baths, according to public records. The house sits on a 0.22-acre (9,435-square-foot) lot, according to public records. The house does not appear to have been on the market.
