About Robert Downey Jr.’s role in ‘Chef’
[WARNING: Spoilers for a cameo role.]
[Please don’t read if you don’t want to know further.]
[EDIT: Fixed ‘cause I just read RDJ’s part of the script]
- He is only in one scene.
- His role is literally only five pages of script.
- He plays a character named Marvin.
- He is Sofia Vergara’s (Inez) first husband.
- Inez prods Carl Casper (Jon Favreau’s character) to take up Marvin’s help.
- He owns a bunch of companies including leasing catering trucks.
- Marvin provides Carl the beaten-down food truck, which Carl restores and is central to the story.
- He only shares the scene with Jon Favreau.
- Early consensus of the film is generally good.
- (Though IndieWire hated the crap out of it.)
Favreau is a gifted comic actor and he breezes through his scenes here with effortless charm, even when his character is being a shitty, oblivious dad. (Favreau is only upstaged by Robert Downey, Jr., whose brief cameo as Casper’s food truck financier reminds us why Downey, Jr. is one of the most charismatic actors in Hollywood.)
Robert Downey Jr.’s part in ‘Chef’ is only a cameo role where he plays one of Sofia Vergara’s ex-husbands.

We married when we were very young. Very young! I was 14 and he was 16. We had to, because the Japanese were taking over. They were raping the girls. I had to be married, and he loves me.

In light of that video of RDJ working out this Monday
RIP for now, RDJ’s tummy —
We’ll see you again after Ultron wraps filming.
My level of attraction to Robert Downey Jr. keeps on reaching an all-time high whenever he shows up somewhere or on something that I’ve never seen.
It’s been a serious problem for over four years.
I need to spend $1000 in “educational items” (i.e., textbooks) by May or else I lose that $1000. It doesn’t roll over for my 2nd year.
Apparently Robert Downey Jr. things don’t count as educational, even though I’m learning a lot.
For example— I learned that he only gets more attractive as he ages.
A quick shout-out to all those delivery guys and maintenance crew (ex. Comcast cable dude) who have stepped foot in my apartment and kept their mouths shut at the sight of Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man things that litter the place.
