Over-the-top talented actor and writer Alan Cumming has put his East Village co-op on the market for $2.2 million. Cumming and his husband, artist Grant Shaffer, bought the apartment in 2005 for $1.7 million.

The full-floor apartment on East 10th Street overlooks Tompkins Square Park and features four bedrooms and one bathroom, a flood of natural light, and wide-plank hardwood floors. The prewar unit has a formal entry foyer and expansive living and dining areas. The open, chef's kitchen features stainless-steel counters.

Douglas Elliman broker Noble Black, who is co-listing the apartment with Jennifer Kaufman Stillman, says the co-op is "super charming" and "character-filled."

"It's quintessentially East Village living," Black told us.

Cumming and Shaffer are getting ready to move around the corner into their nearly renovated townhouse, which they bought in 2013 for $4.65 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The Scottish actor has thrice been nominated for an Emmy award for his role as slithering Eli Gold on TV's "The Good Wife," which recently ended its seven-year run. Cumming won a Tony in 1998 for his portrayal of the emcee in a Broadway revival of "Cabaret."
