Jerry Bruckheimer's $23 million pad is the latest in the rumor mill for high-payed producers. The television and movie producer behind hit films like "Beverly Hills Cop," and shows like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," is close to buying a pricey home in Beverly Hills.
A report on Jan. 5 from TMZ.com says that Bruckheimer made an offer on a 19,590-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills, which was formerly owned by Hary Cohn. Cohn is the former president and production director for Columbi Pictures, who passed away in 1958. The home is currently being sold off by Guess founder Georges Marciano's trustee, since Marciano lost the home due to bankruptcy.

While a bankruptcy judge is cool with Bruckheimer's offer on the house, he'll need to wait for an official hearing to take place. That's scheduled for Jan. 17, and during that time other buyers can try to offer a higher bid on the home to swipe it from Jerry.
The huge home and property is perfect for a producer like Jerry Bruckheimer. It features a screening room, card room, billiards room and sunken tennis court, as well as a swimming pool. The home was originally built by Cohn back in 1927, so it would be quite a place for Bruckheimer to end up with.
Bruckheimer's television credits include his production of hit shows such as "CSI," "Criminal Minds," and "Without a Trace." He's also been known to bring out a classic movie or two such as "Top Gun," Flashdance," and Beverly Hills Cop."
