Sporting a cape like Liberace and hair like a demented Elvis, Jason Schwartzman visits Sesame Street for a quick turn in “Cast Iron Cook,” an Iron Chef parody. Starring alongside Elmo, Schwarzman plays the discerning and dramatic judge, Super Chef, a man prone to screamed exclamations and purple gloves. Good luck impressing that guy. We didn't think you could cook without opposable thumbs, but if Animal can keep a steady 8/10 beat, why couldn't Elmo make a credible ragout? Check out the video after the jump.
