Big Brother is cook­ing for home­com­ing Colin

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

Big Brother is not watch­ing you, but cook­ing for you. Or at least, he is for Colin Far­rell... The afore­men­tioned big bro, and Ir­ish dance guru Ea­mon will be cook­ing Christ­mas din­ner for Colin and the rest of the fam­ily when they fly in from Los An­ge­les in three weeks’ time.

Those in hun­gry at­ten­dance at Ea­mon’s swish Yule­tide repast at his and hus­band Steven Man­nion’s Sandy­mount home will in­clude, among oth­ers, proud mammy Rita Far­rell and her hus­band Joel B Michaels (she mar­ried the film pro­ducer — the man be­hind Ba­sic In­stinct 2 and Ter­mi­na­tor 3: Rise of the Ma­chines — in the sum­mer of 2013 in Colin’s house in LA), plus Ea­mon’s sis­ters Clau­dine (with her film di­rec­tor boyfriend Mark Steven John­son) and Cather­ine (with hus­band Kevin) and their kids. This is to say noth­ing of Colin him­self. “I’m cook­ing,” Ea­mon ex­plained. “It is the first year in 10 that all the fam­ily are home for din­ner in our house. We were sup­posed to be in LA last year but Ste was sick.”

The afore­men­tioned Steven, an artist of some note, is, says Ea­mon, “em­bark­ing on a ca­reer as a mo­ti­va­tional speaker”.

Ea­mon was equally proud, re­lat­ing that “my won­der­ful, marvel­lous, pow­er­house step-dad has just had his new movie, Af­ter The Wed­ding, an­nounced as the open­ing night premiere at this year’s Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val! No one de­serves it more. It is a stun­ningly beau­ti­ful piece of art”.

As doubt­less will be Ea­mon’s culi­nary of­fer­ing on Christ­mas Day in Sandy­mount.

“It will be a full tra­di­tional din­ner,” Ea­mon re­vealed. “Turkey, ham and salmon for the pescatar­i­ans!”

“I’ll be do­ing all the cook­ing. Ste won’t be cook­ing. Ste will be do­ing the en­ter­tain­ing.”

Will there be an in­ter­mis­sion?

The ques­tion re­mains: will Colin be dress­ing for din­ner?
