The two sides of Jon Favreau can't be better exemplified than by two recent projects. The writer/director/producer/actor is currently gearing up his little "indie" flick "Chef" (starring A-list types Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara and more) but has found some space between "Iron Man 3" and his next feature effort, to shoot a little commercial for a videogame company. Dude knows how to multitask and keep his toes in the commercial and not-so-commercial worlds.

Bungie and Activision are lauching "Destiny" this fall, a brand new buttonmasher that kind of looks like "Halo," but then again the last videogame I played was on the PlayStation 2. Anyway, he ropes in the always excellent Giancarlo Esposito (whom he directed in the pilot episode of "Revolution"), in a spot that someone links "The Jungle Book" with taking a last stand in the last city on Earth. It's live action intercut with gameplay scenes, but it's all on a level a bit higher than your usual videogame spot. A curiosity worth taking a minute to check out. Watch below -- the game drops this fall. [Variety]
