Fast food icon Colonel Sanders is known the world over and Kentucky Fried Chicken is doing their best to remind of us of his enduring spirit of hospitality with an ensemble cast of actors and comedians. Jared Cotter is now serving a bucket full of KFC colonels!

1.  Darrell Hammond

There's been a carousel of eight comedic colonels since 2015 and it all started with this hilarious comedian and former Saturday Night Live cast member.

2.  Norm Macdonald

This fellow SNL alumn and funny man donned the white suit just three months after Darrell.

3.  Jim Gaffigan

In 2016, out of nowhere, Norm flew the coop this popular stand-up comedian swooped in.

4.  George Hamilton

That summer of 2016, they hit the beach and found this legendary actor. Good thing he found some KFC sunblock!

5.  Rob Riggle

That fall, actor and comedian Rob jumped into the bucket of Colonels. The Step Brothers star saved the day as the Football Coach Colonel.

6.  Vincent Kartheiser

A month later this Mad Men star crooned his way onto the scene.
