Chef Filming in Miami: Behind the Scenes with Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo

Usually, when film or TV projects come to town, the directors are extra-secretive about their sets. (Looking at you, Iron Man 3.)

Jon Favreau is not one of those directors.

While he was in Miami filming his upcoming movie Chef, Favreau took plenty of time out to update his fans on its progress, using a series of video clips showing Sofia Vergara shaking it to Cuban rhythms, John Leguizamo getting down and dirty in the kitchen, and plenty of onlooking Miamians making their own surprise cameo.
