Celebrity Jedi Chefs: Sci-Fi Crossover Madness!

There's no way to properly describe the website Jedi Chefs. I'll leave it up to them: "What do the Jedi Chefs do? We Jedi Chefs do the same sorts of things that 'normal' Jedi do, but we also cook." There's even a hierarchy, the top level being Jedi Master Chefs (of which there are 216), with a Jedi Chef Apprentice Program for those in training.

There doesn't seem to be much actual cooking going on. Instead the Jedi Chefs seem to hang out in hotel lobbies and conventions, taking pictures of themselves wearing chef hats, shooting Nerf guns (and what appear to be pulse rifles from Aliens) at each other, and swinging their light sabers around. They sometimes also appear to use what's commonly known as "the Force." Alcohol seems to play a nontrivial part.

But most amazingly, they've managed to get an impressive array of celebrities from various television shows (mostly sci-fi) to participate, from nearly the entire cast of Battlestar Galactica to Lost, Alias, Heroes, Stargate SG-1, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Doctor Who, on and on. Amazingly, they don't seem to have corralled any Star Wars cast members. What gives?

They even got Christina Hendricks from Mad Men, but she's only a Jedi Chef Apprentice.

Battelstar actors: clockwise, from top left: Leah Cairns, aka Racetrack; Rekha Sharma aka Tory Foster, one of the Final Five; Alessandro Juliani aka Felix Gaeta; Tahmoh Penikett aka Karl Agathon aka "Helo."

Heroes actors, from left: Sendhil Ramamurthy, aka Mohinder Suresh; Jessalyn Gilsig aka Meredith Gordon; David Anders aka Adam Monroe; Noah Gray-Cabey aka Micah Sanders; and Cristine Rose aka Angela Petrelli.

In even more random casting, they've got Fran├žois Chau who plays Dr. Marvin Candle in Lost (who, incidentally also played The Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze); Todd Bridges from Diff'rent Strokes; and Stephen Tobolowsky of Heroes and Groundhog Day.
