President Obama doesn’t always ask beer pitchmen for endorsements, but when he does, he prefers “the most interesting man in the world.”

Jonathan Goldsmith, the actor who plays the bearded man of legend in commercials for Dos Equis, will host an Obama fundraiser Tuesday in Burlington, Vt., according to the Obama campaign.


Mr. Goldsmith, 73, will attend the reception along with Vermont House Speaker Shapleigh “Shap” Smith. The cost to attend ranges from $20 to $500.

Mr. Goldsmith has starred in Dos Equis commercials since 2006.
