You’ve seen the guy from the Dos Equis commercials, right? The one they call “the Most Interesting Man in the World”?
He’s an actor, of course. His name is Jonathan Goldsmith.
And he appeared in the very second episode shown of the original Star Trek TV series, on Nov. 10, 1966.
The episode was the Corbomite Maneuver, reports Lauren Davis of i09. That’s the one in which the Enterprise faces down a giant spaceship that looks like a golf ball and Jim Kirk has to bluff his way out of trouble. Goldsmith — who, at the time, went by the name Jonathan Lippe — was only on screen for a moment very early in the story, working in a corridor (right) as a sweaty, shirtless Kirk saunters by.
What’s more: Goldsmith wore a red shirt. And he didn’t die.
Son of a bitch. He really is the Most Interesting Man in the World.
