Amy on her role in Jon Favreau’s upcoming ‘Chef’

You’ll be able to catch Amy on the big screen next month in Jon Favreau’s new food truck film, Chef! In the upcoming indie flick about a restaurant owner who loses his job and starts a food truck, Amy joins fellow cast members Scarlet Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Dustin Hoffman, among others. Chef releases nationwide on May 9 (though this is an indie, so I’m honestly not sure that it will be playing everywhere). Check out the video below in which Amy talks about her part in the film (she plays a publicist, and everything on her is fake), working with Favreau and Leguizamo, and doing cameo parts in movies.

Amy to Co-Star in Jane Krakowski pilot for Fox!

UPDATED 5/7/2014: Bad news! I’m sorry to say that the Dead Boss pilot did not get picked up.

The Hollywood Reporter just posted some exciting news… Amy Sedaris has signed on to co-star in Dead Boss, a new pilot starring Jane Krakowski for Fox!

Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens (Krakowski) wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence.

Sedaris will play Mary, one of Helen’s nosy, fault-finding co-workers and the gatekeeper to their boss. She secretly loves the man and openly hates Helen.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a pilot… which means that it may or may not get picked up for a full season this fall. Of course, I’ll post anything I find out here, and fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing Amy on TV this fall!
