Danny Devito stunned fellow diners at a New York restaurant on Friday night (29Mar13) when he ventured into the kitchen to chat with the staff and help dish out the food.

The Hollywood star headed to The Spotted Pig with friends and cast members from his U.S. sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the funnyman wasted no time in entertaining other diners at the eaterie after finishing his meal.

DeVito then headed into the kitchen to help out, and also posed for photos with restaurant staff.

A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "He just wandered in (to the kitchen) and asked if he could help. He was entertaining all of the customers on the first floor of the restaurant and the cooks."
