Actor Matthew Modine has purchased a condominium in New York's Chelsea section for $1.7 million.
Modine, 49, starred as Private Joker in Stanley Kubrick's 1987 film "Full Metal Jacket" and most recently has had a recurring role as a land developer on the cable-television series "Weeds." The 1,600-square-foot condo, in a converted industrial building with a brick facade, comes with 2.5 baths and a custom Italian kitchen. The doorman building includes a screening room and a gym.
The actor, who also owns a townhouse in Greenwich Village, recently founded Bicycle for a Day, a nonprofit that promotes cycling. Mark D. Friedman of Halstead Property represented Modine, while Stribling Marketing Associates represented the developer.
