Christopher Meloni, most well-known as Detective Stabler in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit but best known as Gene the troubled cook in Wet Hot American Summer, is not afraid of no ghosts. He's just bought the notorious Ozzie and Harriet house in the Hills, which comes with persistent tales of hauntings told by several former owners, all of whom are probably crazy or very gullible. More interestingly, the house was both the real and television home of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson in the '50s and '60s, and the television home of Entourage's Ari Gold in the aughts. It was first built in 1916 and designed by Frank Kegley and H. Scott Gerity; it's been remodelded recently and today has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a pool, and a three-car garage on nearly half an acre. Variety reports Meloni and his wife Sherman Williams paid $5.25 million.
