For some reason, Dos Equis beer made news this week when it announced that it was replacing current “Most Interesting Man in the World” Johnathan Goldsmith with a younger most interesting person in the world. I am not sure this is newsworthy.
What is newsworthy, as my friend The Magister pointed out is that The Most Interesting Man in the World is also one of the luckiest Red Shirts in the world in that he survived playing a Red Shirt on Star Trek.
As most Star Trek fans know, actors wearing red shirts during the run of the original series usually didn’t survive to see the end of the episodes in which they were featured. Of course, Goldsmith – the most interesting man in the world – did.
