Last month, tax records reveal, “The Lion King” voice actor and longtime wife Lauren Miller also paid nearly $3 million for a mini-estate deep in the Hollywood Hills. The property was never on the market, so public photographs are nonexistent and details slim, but it happens to lie directly next door to a much larger compound that Rogen bought back in 2014 for nearly $8 million.

The fellas are down at SXSW to do some long-lead press and attend a Tumblr-sponsored Entourage bash featuring the musical stylings of Spoon.
