Hollywood actor Jerry O'connell is so excited about the approaching Christmas holidays, he's already covered his house with lights.

The KANGAROO JACK star, who shares a California, home with fiancee Rebecca Romijn, got a headstart on decorating for the season - and he hopes to out-shine all his neighbours.

He says, "I jumped ahead of schedule and did the lights on my roof this weekend. I am that guy on the block. I wanted to have more lights than anyone."
