BIG YIN'S GARFIELD KNEES UP
BILLY Connolly is hosting a Hollywood bash at his Scots mansion to celebrate landing a top movie role.
The Big Yin will play evil Lord Dargis in the sequel Garfield 2, due for release next summer.
And to celebrate he has invited a host of stars to a bash at his home at Strathdon, Aberdeenshire.
The party ties in with the annual Lonach Gathering near Billy's home later this month.
Now locals are eagerly awaiting news of the stars who will descend on the village games as Connolly is Laird of the Gathering.
Funnyman Steve Martin has already confirmed that he's returning.
And others who have joined Connolly in the past are Sean Connery, Ewan McGregor, Robin Williams, Dame Judi Dench and Michael Parkinson.
The source said: "There's a real buzz in the village.
"Steve Martin has already confirmed, so it looks like there's going to be a top turnout."
