Mario Lopez is Hunky Colonel Sanders in Lifetime / KFC Watch ‘Film’ Trailer
The first person to say “Lick your fingers well” can be friendly.
Lifetime and KFC announced Monday that Mario Lopez will star Colonel Sanders in A Recipe for Seduction, which is touted as the “Lifetime Original Mini-Movie Presented by Kentucky Fried Chicken,” but is certainly just a long commercial. I mean, let’s accept that. (To update: It’s a 15-minute mini-film indeed, I’m sure of it.)
“Some people bring their secrets with them to the grave, but Colonel Sanders is putting his in the deep fryer,” says the KFC Facebook page, while the “Movie” poster (below) has the teaser line “We All Have Our Secrets “is seen, His righteousness is … a recipe for seduction. “
The official summary on Lifetime’s website states: “Over the coming holidays, an heiress (played by Bosch alum Justene Alpert) is struggling with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother. When the handsome chef arrives with his secret recipe and a dream, he sets a series of events in motion that unravel the mother’s plans. “
The cast also includes Tessa Munro, Chad Doreck and Martin Mandela.
Lopez recently revived his role as AC Slater on Peacock’s “Saved by the Bell,” and now … he has.
