'Chef': Jon Favreau shows his son how to cook (and lie to his mother)
Come hungry, leave happy.
That’s probably the feeling you’ll have after seeing Chef, the new movie from writer/director Jon Favreau. It premiered at last month’s SXSW festival in Austin, and EW has an exclusive clip of the food lover’s film.
Favreau stars as Carl, who quits his job as a chef at a top Los Angeles restaurant and decides to open a food truck in Miami to stir up his creative juices, sauces, and more! The cast includes Sofia Vergara as Favreau’s ex-wife and John Leguizamo as his friend who both helps out in the new culinary venture and with Favreau’s son, played by Emjay Anthony. In the clip, Vergara calls in to check on the progress of the other three men in a typical, overbearing, motherly way. Watch below:
The film will open in New York and LA on May 9 before expanding nationwide the following week. The all-star cast also includes Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson.
