Excellent; another favorite comedy-stalwart Amy Sedaris has joined the cast of Jon Favreau's upcoming film Chef, announced once more through Vine.

The actress was shot in her makeup chair, with the caption "New cast member. #Chef." Sedaris will join the already A-list cast, including Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, and Favreau himself, in a film about a disgraced chef who opens a food truck. The latest reports say Chef is slated for a May 2014 release.

This isn't to be confused with John Wells-directed movie, Chef, which stars Bradley Cooper and has signed on Gordon Ramsay as a culinary adviser. Favreau's film is most likely a lighter, humor-focused movie (the cast helps), while Cooper's most recent acting experience suggests a slightly darker turn, as Cooper stars as a chef who lost his Michelin star and is working to earn it back.

Check out Favreau's latest Vine videos below, including a video of Los Angeles chef Roy Choi prepping the food.
