In 2015, Rob Lowe famously spoofed himself for several DirecTV commercials. Now, he is making his return to the commercial world for KFC. The fast food giant unveiled Lowe as their latest Colonel Sanders to promote their new Zinger chicken sandwich. Lowe is joining the likes of fellow comedians and actors including Norm Macdonald, Rob Riggle, George Hamilton, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Zane, and Darrell Hammond as those portraying the KFC icon. Lowe of course adds his own twist and individuality to the character by dressing as an astronaut, Mission Commander Colonel Sanders. He announced KFC’s plans “...to explore beyond our known horizons. To push KFC’s spicy crispy chicken to new heights.”
