Mario Lopez is a finger-lickin’ good Colonel Sanders in ‘Recipe’ movie
What … the actual … cluck?!
Sprinkled in with 11 secret herbs and spices, “Saved by the Bell” star Mario Lopez is serving up a big bucket of finger-lickin’ good lovin’ as none other than Kentucky Fried Chicken’s signature spokesman, Colonel Harland Sanders.
Deep-fried by forbidden flames, sizzling hot and juicy Lopez — coiffed with the Colonel’s unmistakable silver comb-over and well-groomed goatee — steams up the small screen as a saucy chef with the hots for his evil, albeit well-to-do boss’ daughter in Lifetime’s original mini-movie “A Recipe for Seduction.”
Turning up the heat with “mystery, suspense, deception, and ‘fowl’ play,” the 15-minute romance comes as a creative collaboration between KFC and Lifetime in an effort to gift consumers with the “perfect distraction” from all things 2020 this holiday season.
And online lovers of Lopez, 47, are eating his sexy Sanders up!
“LIFETIME IS RELEASING A HORNY KFC MOVIE STARRING MARIO LOPEZ AS COLONEL SANDERS I WILL NEVER RECOVER,” an enthused tweeter exclaimed on Twitter. “I don’t like KFC, Lifetime movies, or Mario Lopez, but together-magic. Thank you 2020!,” tweeted another.
Colonel Sanders’ Southern-gent swag was previously remixed toward sex god vibes for Mother’s Day in 2017, when KFC released the romantic novella “Tender Wings of Desire,” starring the fried chicken joint’s mustached mascot as a muscle-bound lover boy.
Lopez as Colonel Sanders in “A Recipe For Seduction” premieres Sunday, Dec. 13, at 12 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
