You’re not seeing things if you think The Colonel looks and sounds different lately.  Ladies and Gentlemen: Meet your new Colonel Sanders, Rob Lowe!

The former West Wing and Parks and Recreation star is the new face of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Of course the original Colonel Harlan Sanders was known for his white hair, mustache and goatee starred as himself in many commercials before his death in 1980.

In the new video released Friday, Rob (as the Colonel) presents a new spicy “Zinger” chicken sandwich which will debut in all U.S. locations beginning tomorrow.

KFC has had a few “Finger Lickin’ Good” actors who portrayed Colonel Sanders, most notably Darrell Hammond, Norm Macdonald, Jim Gaffigan and George Hamilton.

Take a look at the Zinger announcement featuring Rob Lowe here:
