Comedian Jim Gaffigan is as vanilla as they come — at least that's how he and his wife Jeannie describe his appearance. While the boring, everyman look might pay off with some roles  — he played KFC’s Colonel Sanders earlier this year — it can lead to some less desirable results. Jeannie told the New Yorker, “The look he has, the God-given look that he has — is conducive to people coming up and telling him a racist joke.” Jim interjected, “People think I’m a Republican.” We're waiting to see if this plays out on the next season of the couple's The Jim Gaffigan Show.
