In celebration of Jon Favreau’s new film Chef opening in limited release today, we are bringing you two new clips. These new looks feature Favreau in the starring role of Chef Carl Casper … better yet, make that @ChefCarlCasper, since his character struggles to learn how to use the relatively new wave of social media. Even with Percy (Emjay Anthony) helping him out, Casper lands himself in hot water (so to speak) when a Twitter faux pas leads to a misunderstanding between Casper and a harsh food critic (Oliver Platt).
Open now in limited release, Chef also stars Bobby Cannavale, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr. Hit the jump to watch the new Chef clips.
Take a look at the new Chef clips below (via Mashable):
And here’s a follow-up clip from Yahoo!:
Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen — and zest for life and love.
