Who is in the KFC ‘dream’ commercial?
7. Rob Lowe, one of the best actors that have ever played Colonel Sanders – In April of 2017, the role of KFC’s Colonel Sanders was filled by Rob Lowe, the ninth celebrity to be cast in the role. The star of Parks and Recreation appeared in advertisements for KFC’s Zinger spicy chicken sandwich earlier this year.
Celebrities from all walks of life, including stand-up comedians, musicians, and actors, have enthusiastically participated in what has become a long-standing tradition at KFC: the company selects various actors to play the role of Colonel Sanders, who then dons a white suit and promotes the introduction of new menu items.
In exchange, KFC devotees receive delectable cuisine and nothing but smiles because to humorous ads that are constantly updated and reinvented.
