DEWAR’S Scotch Whisky “Defined the Modern Man” in Los Angeles Thursday night at the swanky Redbury Hotel where Hollywood’s funniest man, Joel McHale, joined his funniest friends - Community Co-star actress Alison Brie and Executive Producer and Writer of E!’s The Soup KP Anderson - along with rising star Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams and author/mixologist Dan Dunn for an evening of casual debate. At the DEWAR’S hosted event, moderator Joel McHale and panelists joked about what makes today’s man tick.
The night of course called upon one of Joel’s ultimate modern men – Ryan Seacrest. Ryan after all embodies many qualities of the modern man (good looks, beautiful girlfriend, and successful career) but after plenty of back and forth between Joel and the rest of the panel, Jesse Williams silenced the panel asking, “can hobbits be modern men?” And KP Anderson admitted, “Well yes, Frodo was the modern man after all!”
In the end, Joel’s friends and fellow panelists were quick to call him the ultimate “modern man”, with KP Anderson adding “the modern man never says out loud I am gonna tweet this. Joel says I’M gonna HAVE someone tweet this”.
So who is the “modern man”? The jury is still out on that one but Joel Mchale (with the help of some DEWAR’S on the rocks) sure got the discussion started.
Also in attendance were fashion journalist and TV personality Louise Roe, designer Rebecca Minkoff (her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy), Zoe Saldana’s fiancé and founder of MyFashionDatabase Keith Britton, British actress Gemma Chan and many of LA’s finest “modern men”…and women.
What characteristics do you feel make up the modern man?
