KFC debuted its new commercials in line with the NFL 2019 season. Sean Astin is the latest celebrity Colonel.
KFC is having fun with its celebrity Colonels. To kick off the NFL 2019 season, a new celebrity Colonel is in town. Say hello to Sean Astin, who is known as Colonel Rudy within the commercials.
The first commercial took place yesterday to mark the return of the NFL 2019 schedule. Colonel Rudy (because Astin is known for the 1993 classic sports movie, Rudy) made his debut in the commercial dubbed Rudy II.
Did you miss the ad? Don’t worry, you can catch it below and see the comedic actor in action.
We do have to admit that the commercial would make an excellent feel-good movie. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t be Colonel Sanders.

Of course, the release of the commercial has led to some fans coming up with new ideas to keep Astin in the commercials. One user on YouTube suggests Rudy III: Lord of the Wings. Hey, KFC, what do you think?
