There’s a new Colonel in town.
Norm Macdonald has taken over the role of Colonel Sanders, replacing his fellow Saturday Night Live alum Darrell Hammond, who started appearing in KFC commercials in May. The ads play off the fact that Macdonald is the new face, with his Colonel Sanders decrying imposters from Hollywood pretending to be him.
