Dennis Farina visits the Tribeca Film Festival 2011 portrait studio on April 23, 2011 in New York City.

Actor Dennis Farina has died, according to the Associated Press. Farina, who served 18 years in the Chicago Police Department before becoming an actor, was best known for his role on Law & Order. Most recently, he played Nick’s father Walt on two episodes of New Girl.

According to IMDb, Farina was currently filming a movie called Lucky Stiff about a bachelor who must go to Monte Carlo to claim an inheritance from a rich uncle. The film stars Seinfeld‘s Jason Alexander. He is also in Authors Anonymous, currently in post-production.

Though his cause of death is unknown at this time, Farina’s publicist confirmed the actor’s passing, saying:

We are deeply saddened by the loss of a great actor and a wonderful man. Dennis Farina was always warm-hearted and professional, with a great sense of humor and passion for his profession. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and colleagues. We hope that he finds a new life where great roles are plentiful and the Cubs are always winning the pennant. We ask that the press refrain from contacting his family at this time so that they can mourn their loss together.

Hugh Jackman's NYC condo

Hugh Jackman has got that triple threat thing down.

Especially since he’s acting, singing and dancing all the way to the bank – and has so much stored away for a rainy day that he plunked down $25 million to live in the Big Apple’s lap of luxury.

In this edition of Real Estate Rewind, we’re going back to 2008 when the Aussie hunk moved into this massive modernist real estate masterpiece designed by internationally acclaimed architect Richard Meier.

And Celebuzz can give you a glimpse at the inside photos.

The 11,000 square foot, 3-level condo in the artsy enclave of the West Village was previously owned by billionaire Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy, who put it on the market for a whopping $40 million, then $33 million, until the Prisoners star snagged it for a steal (but still staggering) $25M.

And it’s only the very best for the superstar. The 5-bedroom spread is the largest in the building and is filled to the crown moldings with dramatic details – from expansive views of the Hudson River and 3 terraces to huge double-height ceilings and swirling staircase.

The digs include a professional gourmet kitchen, studio/exercise area (to get into tip top Wolverine shape), recreation room for his two kids Ava and Oscar, sauna, library and wine cellar. And we can’t forget the music room where he perfects those Broadway pipes.

Check out each room for yourself in the CB! gallery above.

Ryan Serhant knows you are who your friends are.

And with friends like Courteney Cox and David Arquette, the Million Dollar Listing New York star could throw an awesome Beverly Hills pool party courtesy of their $19.5 million dollar digs that just hit the market.

Cox and her ex hubby have kept the listing on the DL since they split in 2011, but now the contemporary manse is available to the mega-rich masses.

The newly-revamped 5,500 square foot abode has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and an incredible view of the L.A. skyline to gaze at while your floating in the sparkling pool.

So what kind of profit does Hollywood’s one-time “It” quirky couple hope to make if the sale goes as planned? Well, they bought the hilltop home in 2004 for nearly $5.5 million. So you do the math… It’s a lot.

Goodbye, New York. Ryan Serhant‘s moving Across the Pond. But don’t worry Celebuzz fans, it’s just temporary… with the help of a little internet time travel magic.

Newlywed Keira Knightley has listed her East London townhouse for 3 million British pounds (mathematical translation: about $4.8 million) to find a new love nest for her and hubby James Righton.

Knightley’s four-story Georgian mansion was recently renovated to reflect her famously chic style and passion for French d cor that would make Karl Lagerfeld proud.

The charming 3,200 square foot four-bedroom abode was built in the 1800s and is filled with tons of quaint character in every nook and cranny – from the colorful walls and elegant bath tub in the master bedroom to the fireplace in the kitchen and table for two in the garden.

Eliza Dushku buys a Boston pad

Eliza Dushku has the perfect cure for being homesick – earn enough money to live the bicoastal dream.

The Boston native just bought herself a pied-a-terre in Beantown, Celebuzz has learned.

And this little taste of home only set the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer ass-kicker back a modest (by celeb standards) $300,000.

The 31-year-old actress, who grew up in Watertown, Mass., purchased the new digs in late July, according to property records, as the perfect home away from Hollywood for her and longtime boyfriend Rick Fox. And it’s got all the New England charm you can get for a few hundred grand.

Located in trendy Beacon Hill just north of Boston Common, the 2-bedroom, 1-bath condo boasts classic brick Federal-style architecture with tons of historic character.

Each charming room has been remodeled and is just waiting for Dushku’s style-savvy touch. But we’re pretty sure there are a few things she won’t lay her hands on, like all the original details that have been kept intact, from the high ceilings to ornate moldings.

Just minutes from all the restaurant hotspots and shops on Charles and Newbury streets, the quaint space for two is a great investment as a rental for all the nearby Boston College, MIT and Harvard students or just a crash pad for Dushku’s family visits.

Though they see eye to eye on a lot of things, Katy Perry and her BFF, Rihanna, actually live very differently lives, according to the songstress.

Speaking with Elle Canada, the “Roar” crooner says she has no idea how her gal pal manages stay so flawless despite her late nights. (Come on, remember all that preparation for her Vogue cover?)

I think that Rihanna always looks so fresh and I’m like, ‘How do you do that? We all know how much pot you smoke! And you don’t sleep because you’re on Instagram at four o’clock in the morning!'” Perry said.

“People say you should work out 30 minutes a day-none of us works out 30 minutes a day!”

Well, not all of us scarf down trough of vitamins either.

There are only two episodes remaining of the best show ever (sorry, The Wire), so please enjoy this photo of Breaking Bad‘s hirsute hottie Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) at the ‘Halloween Time’ celebration at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., on Tuesday.

In the words of Joe Giudice, “happy wife, happy life.” Well, Melissa Gorga has almost four million reasons to be a happy housewife.

The Real Housewife of New Jersey and her hubby Joe Gorga just sold their Montville mansion for the full asking price of $3.8 million, even after a roller coaster three years on and off the market.

But Teresa Giudice‘s brother and sister-in-law aren’t going too far. The NJ natives are building brand new digs in Franklin Lakes where Melissa will be able to call Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo for a cup of sugar (or just gossip about Teresa.)

And if their new abode is anything like this one, it’s gonna be over-the-top.

The 13,500 square foot Chateau-style crib boasts more than enough room for their three little kids, including 6 fancy bedrooms and 6.5 baths, and all the dramatic details fit for a housewife.

Open the front doors to a grand two-story foyer with sweeping double staircases, 4 fireplaces, enormous kitchen, billiards room, screening room and library.

Carmen Electra House Hunts In BH

Carmen Electra is on the move.

And she’s got pricey properties on the brain… to the tune of $3 to $4 million bucks.

The former Baywatch star is on the hunt for a new home with a little help from Million Dollar Listing L.A.‘s real estate reality stars the Altman brothers, a source close to the actress tells Celebuzz.

“She’s been at her old place for a long time and she wants something new and different,” added the source.

The 41-year-old stunner currently calls Beverly Hills home and with that priceless view (above) we don’t quite understand why she’d pack up… but it seems three bedrooms with a pool that she bought in 2002 for just over $1.3 million is just not cutting it anymore.

She wants to keep the 90210 zip code, only she’s got more cash to splash. And bigger is better.

“She’d like to rent out her home now and she’s looked at a couple homes so far. One she liked but she didn’t take it,” added the source.

So Simon Cowell‘s ex still on the property prowl.

“She wants to stay in the Benedict Canyon area. She’s looking for something modern in the $3 to $4 million range.

“And she wants more closet space.” (Of course!)

We’re pretty sure for that kind of dough she’ll find plenty of room for her Louboutins.

“She’s updating her life,” said the source.
