Dennis Quaid was born and raised in Texas. Now he’s selling his Pacific Palisades property in California and heading back to the Lone Star State where he and his wife Kimberly, along with their twins Thomas and Zoe, can live closer to extended family.
Quaid bought his California home in 1999 for about $1.8 million and, after transforming it into an “equestrian estate,” he’s selling it for $13.9.
“Dennis Quaid is here!” Every time I see him now I think of the hilarious hidden-camera segment he filmed for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” where she had him announced his presence to everyone in Starbucks and then make demands in the third person. “Dennis Quaid wants a coffee!” (You can see the video here. Cracks me up.)
I just watched The Rookie again with my family and we were cheering him on as the middle-aged man who gets a second chance at pitching for the big leagues. Also loved him as the sales exec who gets pushed aside for a younger employee in the movie In Good Company.
He was reportedly cast as the Reverend Shaw Moore in the updated version of Footloose. Should be interesting!
