WATCH: John Besh Enlists Freeman, De Niro, Douglas, and Kline as Sous Chefs on Today

Highlights: Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas want power tools with which to scoop out their pumpkins; Morgan Freeman breaks the hotplate; Kevin Kline tries to cook a saddle of beef wrapped in salt pastry using only the heat from his hands.

That’s right: it’s an old man party on Today! The cast of Last Vegas was kicking around the studio after their segments aired, and so John Besh enlisted them to act as his sous chefs in a holiday entree demo.

He puts them to work in a mini-cooking competition, but mostly everything falls apart, and Matt Lauer has to close the segment with “to see how these recipes are done correctly, visit”
