In a bit of Doctor Who-esque regeneration, Dos Equis on Wednesday introduced its new Most Interesting Man in the World—to replace Jonathan Goldsmith, who retired from the role earlier this year. And this MIM isn't just a new face. He heralds a new approach to the ads, in what the brewer calls a "contemporary twist to the legendary character."
He's actor Augustin Legrand. And in the first hint that this isn't your worldly grandfather's Dos Equis campaign, Legrand is actually a French actor, and he delivers his first line as the MIM in Spanish.
