Craig Kilborn talks his way into a home sale
Talk show host Craig Kilborn has sold his house in the Hollywood Hills West area for $2.9 million.

The Spanish-style home, built in 1927, was owned by actor Dennis Hopper when he was working on the film "Easy Rider" in the late '60s.

Entered through a turret foyer, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom house features arched windows and doorways, Malibu tile stair risers and original sconces. There are terraced gardens and a swimming pool.

Kilborn, 49, hosted "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn" from 1999 to 2004 and was the original host of "The Daily Show."

Hopper, who died in 2010 at 74, used the address of the house as a title for a book of his photography.

Aileen Comora and Paul Lester of the Agency were the listing agents. Stephen Sigoloff represented the buyer.
