KFC has announced the latest actor to step into the role of 'Colonel Sanders'. The gig goes to 'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander, who follows many famous faces, including Darrel Hammond, George Hamilton, and Reba McEntire.
Ads with Alexander wearing the white suit are airing now, and KFC has debuted two of its new sitcom-themed commercials where the Colonel solves household problems with buckets of chicken...naturally.
Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer of KFC in the U.S., explains that there was “no better person” to portray the latest version of the Colonel - whom she calls the 'Family Colonel' - than Alexander, thanks to his sitcom experience.
