When Jason Schwartzman isn't busy sneaking around Brooklyn for Bored To Death, he's nuts on Sesame Street, donning a silk kimono suit, satin gloves, and some seriously gravity-defying hair to play the
Chairman "Superchef" of the Cast Iron Cook competition. He even gratuitously bites into a bell pepper! It's a thousand times better than the American remake of the Japanese original.
It's not the first time the actor has made a food-centric video, although his previous forays have been more environmentally-oriented than muppet-minded. Regardless, we hope the Superchef becomes a recurring character on the Street—he's way more fun than Lily. The Cast Iron Cooks episode (which also includes a guest appearance from Amy Adams) premieres tomorrow morning.
