Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Chef director and star Jon Favreau!

Jon Favreau has taken a break from big-budget action-adventure films to tell a more personal story with CHEF, the delightful new indie releasing this weekend. In the film, Favreau plays an arrogant chef who is cut down to size when he loses his job and credibility after an unfortunate encounter with a food critic goes viral. The film is, in my opinion, the best Favreau has ever made - sweet, funny and brimming with all the obvious trademarks of a true passion project.

And the passion hasn't subsided at all, as you'll see during my interview with Favreau below. It was the day of the New York premiere of the film, and Favreau was clearly still feeling good about what he had accomplished, not to mention the fact that he was hours away from taking his parents to enjoy his latest feature, which explores the importance of family and friendship. (And, of course, food.) It was a genuine pleasure to chat with Favreau, if for only a little bit, about what is currently my favorite movie of the year.

Have always been a fan of Favreau ever since I saw Swingers. I thinks he's a really good actors and a really strong filmmaker and thought he did a terrific job with the Iron Man films and was really the starting point of getting the whole solo Avenger Universe going successfully.

The trailer was Chef was great even though the trailer revealed way too much and looks like a really good uplifting film. Hopefully i'll be lucky enough to see it in theaters near me or on iTunes.

I like the Favs as well but wish he'd lose some weight, the last couple of years he's become huge.

Love the Favs. Can't wait to see this flick. Also, I really admire the way that Eric Walkuski conducts these interviews and the questions that he asks. He always gets clips that you wouldn't expect to hear. Great, great job, Eric. Seriously.
