Viewers of the Golden Globes have noticed an uncanny – and unlikely – resemblance between Pierce Brosnan and KFC’s Colonel Sanders.

On Sunday night, the actor presented the award for the best motion picture, musical or comedy.

But Brosnan’s involvement in the ceremony was overshadowed by his facial hair, which fans said made him look strangely like the fast-food chain’s famous mascot.

The 66-year-old actor sported a moustache and beard that looked exactly like that of Sanders. Like the mascot, Brosnan was also wearing a bow tie.

“Uhm, that’s like the best version of Colonel Sanders. Ever,” teased one Twitter user.

Another added: “Pierce Brosnan is the villain in Goldfinger Lickin’ Good.”

One person riffed on Brosnan’s stint playing James Bond, tweeting: “Coming soon: Pierce Brosnan as Colonel Sanders in ‘Dine Another Day’”.

Brosnan presented the award alongside actor Will Ferrell, who interrupted him as he was introducing the nominees to say: “My god, you are good looking.

“It’s really something,” Ferrell continued. “I love everything that’s going on here. The hair, the beard. Thank you. It’s a real privilege.”
