Chef Returns to "South Park" (UPDATED)
Comedy Central has announced that James McElroy, a.k.a. “Chef,” will be returning to South Park with this Wednesday’s 10th season premiere episode. The episode synopsis states that Chef returns to the town, but Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny “notice that something about Chef seems different.”
There is no word on who will be providing the voice of Chef in the episode.
UPDATE: A report by Roger Friedman on FoxNews.com, posted on Monday, suggests that Isaac Hayes did not quit South Park after all, but that “someone quit it for him.” As corroborating evidence, Friedman cites Hayes’ performance of a raunchy South Park song at the Memphis Blues Ball last November and comments about the Scientology episode in a January interview with Hayes at the Onion A.V. Club.
