The KFC franchise released a new series of adverts earlier this month, and eagle-eyed netizens spotted a new face!

In the video uploaded to KFC's official YouTube channel, a family looks distraught at the dinner table as the mother informs them that she forgot about dinner. 

They are still contemplating their fate when the door bursts open, and the Colonel himself walks in with KFC's $20 variety special.

They wrote in the caption: "Knock, knock. The Colonel doesn’t knock. He’s barging in with four ways to feed a family for $20."

As fans might have noticed, the new Colonel is none other than Jason Alexander.


He joins the ranks of Reba McEntire and Billy Zane, notable Colonels who came before him. 

Alexander is most famously known as George Costanza in "Seinfeld," a role he portrayed for nine years during the nineties. 

He also had leading roles in "Duckman: Private Dick" in the part of Eric Duckman around the same time, as well as Tony Kleinman in "Listen Up" from 2004 to 2005. 


Fans of Alexander can look forward to his upcoming film projects. He'll appear as Dr. Michael Harris in "Harmony," and as the voice of Noah Brooks in "The Gettysburg Address."  


Whether he would return to his role of Costanza remains to be unseen. "Seinfeld" came to an end in the late nineties, but the show might still receive a reboot. 

Earlier this year, "Seinfeld" and "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" creator and actor Jerry Seinfeld promoted his new show on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." 

He replied that "it's possible" when DeGeneres asked if the original "Seinfeld" show would return to the small screen, much to the delight of the audience.
