Check out the first clip, which debuted at Buzzfeed, from SXSW-bound comedy "Chef."

Rounding out the A-list cast are Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Emjay Anthony, Scarlett Johansson, and Robert Downey, Jr.

Adrift in Miami, Favreau's Carl Casper teams up with his ex-wife (Vergara), his friend (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.
