Why not Cimarro for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 44-year-old actor, as a 2015 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Cimarro so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the actor have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Havana Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Havana (Mario Cimarro's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the actor was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Mario Cimarro Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 24 Nov 2015
“Congrats! Mario has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 24 Nov 2015
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Mario Cimarro?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 24 Nov 2015

Could 2015 officially be the Year of Mario Cimarro?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2015 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2015?
