AceShowbiz - Former Seinfeld star Jason Alexander has signed on to portray Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Harland Sanders in a series of new TV ads.
Beginning on Monday, August 06, the actor will be seen in the fast food chain's new $20 Fill Ups TV and online commercials.
Announcing the news, Jason tells WENN, "As the son of two working parents, there were plenty of dinner times when a bucket of chicken and all the fixins (sic) saved the day."
"It's been fun to combine my personal love for KFC with my sitcom experience into a new take on the role of Colonel Sanders."
Alexander picks up the all-white suit from the likes of George Hamilton, comedians Norm Macdonald, Jim Gaffigan, and Darrell Hammond, Rob Lowe, and Ray Liotta in recent TV campaigns.
