KFC is introducing a new Colonel Sanders on October 10, 2016 to promote the return of Nashville Hot Chicken, and new Nashville Hot Chicken Little sandwiches.

Vincent Kartheiser, best known for playing Pete Campbell in Mad Men and Connor in the WB TV series Angel, is set debut as the chain’s newest Colonel on Monday, October 10. Kartheiser will be part of a new advertising campaign promoting the return of Nashville Hot Chicken and new Nashville Hot Chicken Little sandwiches.

Kartheiser joins what is now becoming a long line of celebrities to play the famous Colonel, including Darrell Hammond, Norm Macdonald, Jim Gaffigan, George Hamilton, and Rob Riggle.

The new Nashville Hot Chicken Little sandwich is priced at $1.69, while individual Nashville Hot Baskets, with cole slaw and a biscuit will be $5.49.

First introduced in January, 2016, Nashville Hot Chicken features spicy, smoky, crispy chicken topped with pickles.

As an aside, earlier this week Chew Boom reported Jack in the Box is offering a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich of its own, in Las Vegas.
