Tom Hanks' Apollo 13 Character Is Listing His Texas Lake House For $3.5M

New, 1 comment

Houston, we have four bedrooms

Former NASA astronaut Captain James Lovell, who led the Apollo 13 mission and was portrayed by Tom Hanks in the move of the same name, has put his Horseshoe Bay, Texas lake house on the market for $3.5 million. The most interesting feature in the house, which comes fully furnished, are five stained glass windows depicting imagery from Lovell's space missions. There's also a massive fireplace. Lovell and his wife Marilyn (played in the movie by Kathleen Quinlan) bought the house in 1988 and hosted Hanks there for a weekend while he was preparing for the role, and learning how to most convincingly utter the now famous line, "Houston, we have a problem."
