Ex-President James LeGros Buys in the Bowery

point break Ex President James LeGros Buys in the Bowery

We think that's Mr. LeGros under the Reagan mask.

Surf’s up for Point Break actor James LeGros and his wife Kristina Loggia LeGros . City records show that the couple just purchased a new home at 5 East Third Street. Mr. LeGros, who plays Roach in the epic surf film, paid $1.7 million for the apartment, which was originally listed for $1.89 million.

Perhaps the new two-bedroom, one-bath will remind Mr. LeGros of frolicking in the summer sun with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze when Point Break was filmed back in the early 1990s. “Sparkling light fills the space from north, south and west all day,” according to a listing from Brown Harris Stevens broker Brahna Yassky. Ms. Yassky declined to comment.

The 1,900-square-f0ot home was previously owned by Carol Yoshimura.
