    Jessica Wohl, writing at Ad Age, on the new pitchman for KFC:

    Vincent Kartheiser, better known as Pete Campbell to “Mad Men” fans, is the latest actor to step into a Colonel Sanders role. He’s playing the Nashville Hot Colonel and viewers can expect to see Mr. Kartheiser appear in a variety of ways in subsequent commercials. […]

    Mr. Kartheiser gets to wear an embellished version of the Colonel’s white suit, including sparkling studded lapels. But you’ll have to look carefully to find him in the first spot –he does not act in the first TV commercial, but appears throughout the 30-second spot on album covers, posters and other decorations in the bedroom of a teenage girl seemingly in love with the Nashville Hot Colonel and his chicken.
