Great article in the NewYorker on Jonathan Goldsmith, best known as the actor who portrays the lead character in Dos Equis campaign “The Most Interesting Man In The World.” Apparently his own real life experiences aren’t too far from being worthy of their own versions of the hilariously scripted adventures that the character in the ads plays.
Taken from the article:
A montage of highlights from the real life of Jonathan Goldsmith might include (had there been cameras present) footage of him rescuing a stranded climber on Mt. Whitney, saving a drowning girl in Malibu, sailing the high seas with his friend Fernando Lamas (the inspiration for his Interesting persona and, according to Goldsmith, “the greatest swordsman who ever lived in Hollywood”), and starting a successful network marketing business (“I was a hustler, a very good hustler”), which, for a while, anyway, enabled him to flee Hollywood for an estate in the Sierras. Among the outtakes might be glimpses of his stint as a waterless-car-wash entrepreneur. “I love the old philosophers,” he said. “I have a large library. I am not a die-hard sports fan. I love to cut wood.”
Here’s to you Mr. Goldsmith, you truly are the most interesting man in the world in my book!
