Stars: Jon Favreau
Sad fact: Very few people are cool enough to casually hang out with celebrities. Whether that's something to lament or not is up to the respective person. For those who long for the chance to shoot the shit with famous peeps like Ben Affleck and Peter Dinklage, Jon Favreau's IFC series Dinner For Five is the closest they'll ever get to small-talking with the stars.
Without cue cards or pre-rehearsed bits, Favreau invited four other names per episode to riff on whatever topics available-think the pleasantries of Inside The Actor's Studio, only with more recognizable faces and no interview format. Considering that a venerable who's who of Hollywood elite joined Mr. Favreau on various occasions (including Martin Scorsese, Alec Baldwin, and Zooey Deschanel), Tinsel Town's best appreciated the opportunity to kick back.
