Hey, look at that! It’s Sean Penn eating a sandwich with Anthony Bourdain. This is going to be funny! Well, not so fast. The clip is from the new season of No Reservations, which starts up this Monday on Travel Channel and will, according to a press release, feature “Bourdain [visiting] off the grid locations that challenge him with a better understanding of human existence and the underlying stories behind a locale’s traditional cuisine.” First up: Haiti, where, yes, Tony bumps into Sean Penn. But instead of making fun of the movie-star-activist stereotype, Bourdain notes that Penn has been sleeping in a tent for months, while his aide group, J/P Haitian Relief Organization, is helping house at least 55,000 people. So, it’s not exactly the same as getting drunk in Buffalo, or calling Alan Richman a douchebag. Check out the preview below.
