Sean Astin has returned to one of his landmark and beloved roles….but it’s for a KFC commercial. Yes, this is a real thing that is happening, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.
Behold, “Rudy II,” an add in which Astin, as Rudy, sets out on a new life goal. To become Colonel Sanders.
“When KFC approached me to reprise the role of Rudy, but play him as Colonel Sanders, I knew this was something I couldn’t pass up,” Astin said in a statement. “Getting to recreate some of the film’s iconic scenes with a KFC spin was such a fun experience.”
