Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon go house hunting in Silver Lake


Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon were seen house hunting in the trendy Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake on Saturday afternoon.

The couple, who have been married since 2007, were seen touring a contemporary home wearing blue surgical masks amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

As they looked for their dream home, the 43-year-old Silicon Valley star sported a black bomber jacket, a matching t-shirt and grey shorts.

Meanwhile, his other half rocked a belted, blue patterned dress with lightning bolts, clear glasses and a pair of red flats. 

She opted to wear her blonde hair down and stayed close to Nanjiani as they walked back to their silver Lexus.  

The comedian–turned–action star, who recently wrapped production on his upcoming Marvel film The Eternals, has been committed to fitness under quarantine.

Additionally, Kumail has been particularly vigilant with masking and social distancing throughout the pandemic as his wife is immunocompromised due to having Still’s disease, a rare auto-inflammatory disease.

According to the CDC, fully vaccinated people can now go mask-free in all situations, though they’ll still need to wear them on public transportation and in health care settings, and they’ll also need to follow local rules that are more strict.

The actor and his wife cowrote the 2017 dramedy The Big Sick, which dramatized the early months of their relationship and her illness.

Kumail starred as a version of himself, while Emily was portrayed by Zoe Kazan.

While they were still a new couple, she became seriously ill and had to be put into a medically induced coma before doctors were able to properly diagnose her and treat the illness. 

The couple married only three months after she recovered. 

Following his 2020 Netflix comedy The Lovebirds, Kumail will return to the big screen in early November to appear in the Marvel superhero film Eternals, which also stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, Brian Tyree Henry and Salma Hayek, among others.

The film follows a group of immortal aliens living in disguise among humans on Earth who have secretly protected them throughout the ages, though they’re forced to return to the job when another alien species threatens humanity.

Chloé Zhao, best known for her deliberately paced art film The Rider and her critical hit Nomadland, directed the film.

Although plenty of fans have been wowed by Kumail’s intense physical transformation for his role in Eternals, others have critiqued Marvel Studios and its parent company Disney for requiring their male actors to achieve Olympian looks that can’t be achieved without intense training sessions and various supplements.

In a March interview with Men’s Health, Kumail explain that when he was approached by the producers of The Eternals about taking a role in the movie, he told them that he was only interested in a leading role.

‘I was like, ‘I don’t want to be just part of a Marvel movie; I want to be a Marvel superhero.”

Since he wanted to completely change his physique for the film, he had to change his thinking about working out in order to cope with the intensity of his new fitness sessions.

‘I had to change my relationship to pain. You’re so designed to avoid it, but in that situation you really have to be okay with it. You have to want it. It’s almost trying to rewire your brain,’ he said.

The film also stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and Gemma Chan, among others.

Although Eternals is already in post-production, he may be keeping up the workout routine to star in his next Disney project, the Star War Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries.  

Coming soon: The actor and comedian will join a stacked cast in the Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries for Disney+

The limited show will be released on the company’s streamer, Disney+, and features an all-star cast that brings back Ewan McGregor as the wise Jedi knight, along with Hayden Christensen, who will presumably be playing some version of Darth Vader after playing Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels.

Joel Edgerton will also reprise his role as Luke Skywalker’s Uncle Owen, while newcomers include The Queen’s Gambit star Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Benny Safdie, best known as half of the directing team responsible for Good Time and Uncut Gems.

So far, Kumail’s role hasn’t been revealed.
