Sure looks like him.
But actually, it’s Gerardo Puisseaux.
Miami TV station WJAN-41 hired the lookalike, who posed for pictures in the bunker around the Pepsi Center, and flew him to Denver.

Puisseaux, an actor, is Cuban born and now lives in Miami. He entertained the crowd for about 20 minutes and then left with a tray of food to head back into the Pepsi Center.
