Actor Charles Grodin and his novelist wife Elissa Durwood have listed their Upper West Side co-op at 33 Riverside Drive for $3.2 million.

Grodin is known for his roles in films like “The Heartbreak Kid” and “Midnight Run.” He also had his own CNBC talk show (“The Charles Grodin Show”), worked as a political commentator for “60 Minutes II” and was even a playwright — penning a satirical off-Broadway play, “The Right Kind of People,” about, get this, a snooty Fifth Avenue co-op board. He also played the father in the lovable dog-centric film franchise “Beethoven.”

Grodin and Durwood bought the pad for $2.7 million in 2006, according to city records. The three-bedroom home comes with a 23-foot entrance gallery, large entertaining spaces, an eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room with custom built-ins.

The oversized living room features beamed ceilings, herringbone hardwood floors and views of the Hudson over Riverside Park. The building, which dates to 1928, was built by George Pelham. The couple, we hear, is spending most of their time in Connecticut.

The listing brokers are Michele Kleier, Sabrina Kleier Morgenstern, Samantha Kleier Forbes and Emilio Mora, of Kleier Residential.
