Samuel L. Jackson and wife are renting out a $15K-a-month NYC home

He’s everywhere! Samuel L. Jackson is the most prolific actor of his generation and one of, if not the, top-grossing film stars of all time — $30 billion in revenue generated to date and counting.

The “Secret Invasion” star’s hits run from “Pulp Fiction” to “Captain Marvel,” “The Avengers, “Jurassic Park,” “Do the Right Thing,” “Goodfellas,” “Patriot Games” and a handful of “Star Wars” spin-offs.

Most recently, Elon Musk’s Neuralink brain chip — which thousands have already lined up for — appears to have been pulled from “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” a 2014 British film that stars Jackson as an eccentric biotech billionaire, Business Insider eerily noted

Jackson, 74, also sometimes works together with his wife of 43 years, Tony-nominated actress LaTanya Richardson — who directed him in last year’s Broadway revival of August Wilson’s “The Piano Lesson”also appeared in “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Sleepless in Seattle.”

The couple, who share daughter Zoe Jackson, an Emmy-award winning producer, have rented their sprawling Upper East Side home at the Leonori.

The Beaux-Arts building, at 26 E. 63rd St. by Madison Avenue, was one of the city’s first pre-wars to convert to condos in 1983.

The 3,000-square-foot co-op combo was last asking $15,000 a month for a year down from its earlier $18,000-a-month ask. 

The couple had previously listed it for $13 million in 2018 after buying it for $4.8 million in 2005 from retired NBA basketball star Greg Anthony and his novelist ex-wife, Crystal McCrary.

The four-bedroom, 3½-bath home combines traditional qualities with a modern, streamlined sensibility. Details include 10-foot-high ceilings and lots of built-ins.

An open living/dining space connects to a sleek, eat-in chef’s kitchen via a wet bar nook and then moves to a den with a wall of built-ins. 

The 13-story, turn-of-the-century building features a limestone base. 

The couple previously owned a brownstone at 522 W. 143rd St., which they bought for $35,000 in 1981 and sold for $125,000 in 1997, according to the New York Times.
