Have a Beer with "The Most Interesting Man in the World", Actor Jonathan Goldsmith in Los Angeles!

Widely known as “The Most Interesting Man in the World,” due to the wildly successful Dos Equis advertising campaign, Jonathan Goldsmith has become a pop-culture icon. Behind the classic scenes of him freeing a grizzly bear from a trap, boating with Miss Universe, or arm wrestling Fidel Castro, Goldsmith is a prolific actor, an accomplished business man, and a capable outdoorsman. This charming, bronzed, bearded gentleman has led his own life nearly as daringly as his on-screen alter-ego.

Born in New York City, Jonathan attended both Boston University and New York University before pursuing acting classes at The Living Theater. After doing improv shows and getting positive feedback, Jonathan was hooked. Goldsmith moved to LA in his early 20’s to become an actor, but he found that auditions were brutal and castings were scarce. All Goldsmith’s hard work and dedication paid off when he landed his first guest role on “Perry Mason.” Since then, Goldsmith has starred in over 350 television guest starring roles, including “Hang 'Em High" with Clint Eastwood, “Ice Station Zebra,” and “Go Tell the Spartans.”

In 2006, Goldsmith auditioned for and won the role of “The Most Interesting Man in the World” using his own personal experiences to help create the character: a cross between Ernest Hemingway, Bill Murray, Burt Reynolds, Royal Tenenbaum and Don Draper. The South American accent he dons when he delivers the remarkable pitch line “I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis” is inspired from Argentinian-born actor Fernando Lamas whom Goldsmith regarded as a very dear friend. A volunteer and advocate for Free Arts for Abused Children for over 35 years, Jonathan also harbors a passion for the outdoors, whether sailing, hiking, fishing or camping.

Whether lounging on his sailboat in the So-Cal sunshine, working on his new house in Vermont or hard at work on his career, The Most Interesting Man in the World rarely experiences an uninteresting moment!
