12. Jeff Axline vs. Vincent Cassel

This newest executive banquet chef at Hotel Zaza chef looks eerily familiar. Did we see him backstage at Swan Lake...or was it heisting a jeweled Fabergé egg opposite Brad Pitt? Wait, maybe it was at Brooklyn Athletic Club. We can't remember.

4. Johann Schuster vs. Gru

The Charivari chef reminds us of a happier, post-adoption Gru. It'd be despicable not to try his food.

2. Amanda Mcgraw vs. Laurie Metcalf circa the early '90s.

Rumor has it the former Brasserie 19 chef got her start at the Lanford Lunch Box with her sister Roseanne. Now you can find them both in Alaska.
