Australian cutie-pie (pun very much intended, although I'm not a cannibal) Dave Wenham has been offered to take over the show after original star Jamie Oliver has retreated to publishing only.
The Aussie, known for his multiple appearances in the kind of flicks that allow a bloke to score on a movie date, has eagerly confirmed the news and said he was going to accept the offer.
During a recent interview for "Men's Vogue", Wenham admitted to being a fine cuisine aficionado, "having the belly to prove it". Lord of the Rings' "Faramir" seemed very enthusiastic about his new project, adding that he intends to slightly alter the format and actually cook naked.
He admitted to being the cook in his house, as well as to cooking for the other Rings stars back in the days. According to David, Sir Ian McKellen is a sucker for paella, Peter Jackson loves China-style steak, Viggo Mortensen and Sean Bean's shared guilty pleasure is lasagna and Karl Urban loves to be left alone with any defenseless dessert as long as it is not chocolate, to which Urban is said to be allergic.
The show is scheduled to begin airing in June on Euforia Channel, every evening at 8.30. My kids are going to be sent to bed early for apparently no reason.
