If you meme your “Most Interesting Man” moments with booze-filled bravado, know these things about the man behind the legend.
He is a Jewish guy from the Bronx.
His name is Jonathan Goldsmith.
He is 72 years old.
He has a house in Vermont.
He wears tasseled loafers and polo sweaters.
He drinks Chianti.
He is not a sports fan.
He prefers philosophers and has a large library.
His wife got him the Dos Equis gig.
The “Most Interesting Man” character was inspired by actor Fernando Llamas – the father of Lorenzo Llamas.
He likes an early lunch in Midtown.
He was that guy on TV… the one who got killed in “Bonanza” and “Knots Landing.”
And now he’s “THAT GUY.” The one who gets recognized walking down the street in his tasseled loafers.
