Comic actor David Spade has listed his Malibu beach home for $13.5 million. It joins more than three dozen other houses for sale in the coastal city priced at $10 million and up.
The two-story house features a cylindrical staircase, four fireplaces and beach-facing balconies and decks. Built in 1996, the four-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom home of more than 3,700 square feet sits on a quarter-acre lot with a pool.
Spade, 47, stars as single friend Russell on the romantic comedy "Rules of Engagement" (2007 to present). He is in the recently released film "Jack and Jill" and "Grown Ups" (2010), which reunited him with several former costars from his 1990s "Saturday Night Live" days. Among notable skits, Spade played Dick Clark's receptionist, repeatedly asking, "And you are?," and an annoying flight attendant who utters "buh-bye" as passengers disembark.
Public records show Spade bought the Malibu property in 2005 for $9.3 million

Time to live his 'one life' elsewhere
Actor Ryan Phillippe has put his home in the Sunset Strip area up for sale at $7.45 million.
With a master suite that takes up an entire level, the gated five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house contains 7,600 square feet of living space. Among its features are a gym, a media room and separate guest or office space. The more than half an acre of grounds includes a swimming pool, spa, sauna and an outdoor kitchen.
Phillippe, 37, starred in "The Lincoln Lawyer," released this year, and "The Bang Bang Club" (2010). He got his start in the early '90s on the soap opera "One Life to Live." Other acting credits include "Flags of Our Fathers" (2006) and "Cruel Intentions" (1999).
Public records show he bought the property for $7.175 million in 2008, after his eight-year marriage to actress Reese Witherspoon was over.
Penny Warren and Kathleen M. Holland of Coldwell Banker's Studio City office are the listing agents.
Even the pantry is super-sized
Consultant Shary Nassimi and his wife, Esther, have listed their six-acre Malibu estate at $15 million.
Shary Nassimi, of Nassimi Consulting and Gjenius Productions, envisioned the home for his family. Features include a 28-foot-tall foyer, a wine cellar, a gym and a swimming pool. A heated central courtyard connects living spaces for large-scale entertaining. The subterranean garage has room for as many as a dozen cars and extra storage. A 300-square-foot pantry and walk-in refrigerator sit near the elevator.
But not all the spaces are massive. "I brought down some areas to make them cozy," Nassimi said. "The den has a smaller-home feeling."
A portion of the kitchen ceiling appears to float to create a warmer environment, and the bedrooms have a more cloistered feeling, he said.
The more than 9,000-square-foot house, completed in 2007, includes seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
Nassimi, whose varied pursuits include acting, photography and inventing, was previously a chief executive at Universal Wireless Solutions and, before that, at International Electronics.
Alla Furman, Connie Blankenship and Jeffrey Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, are the listing agents.
He put his own spin on the place
Record producer Ralph Sall has placed his Sunset Strip-area house on the market at $2.95 million.
The remodeled Spanish-style house, built in 1926, features iron work, interior archways, French doors, balconies and an updated kitchen. The close to 3,300 square feet of living space includes five bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms in the main house and an attached guesthouse. Extensive decks and patios, a loggia and a saltwater swimming pool complete the grounds.
Sall is president of Bulletproof Entertainment. He has worked as a producer and songwriter with singers and bands including Paul McCartney, Jewel, Smash Mouth and Sugar Ray.
The property last changed hands in 2009 for $1.66 million, according to public records.
Sharona Alperin of Sotheby's International Realty's Sunset office is the listing agent.
A new cast for Topanga compound
A Topanga compound built in the early 1930s by Oscar-winning film director Frank Lloyd has been sold for $3.85 million.
The nine-acre property includes the original main house, a carriage house and a guesthouse. The main house features seven wood-burning fireplaces, a billiards room, a library and a walk-in refrigerator. There are four bedrooms, five bathrooms and about 4,900 square feet of living space.
Lloyd, who died at 74 in 1960, was a founder and president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1929, he was nominated for three Oscars for silent and talking films. A silent feature called "The Divine Lady" won. He also won for "Mutiny on the Bounty" (1935).
The property, which had been listed at $4.3 million, was last on the market in 1955.
