‘Blues Clues’ Returns with an Asian American Host!
Recently, Blues Clues released a sneak peek at the return of the familiar and favorite children’s show. So many familiar characters shall be returning, but among them… an entirely new face!
Last fall it was announced that they cast Broadway actor Joshua Dela Cruz in the lead role on its new show, called Blue’s Clues & You. Joahua has previously been an ensemble member in Aladdin on Broadway and was also the understudy for Aladdin.
You can confirm his singing voice by watching the trailer!
After the teaser trailer, many were going ga-ga over the representation that an Asian American (Filipino) host provided. Considering Asians are the most underrepresented group in Television, the excitement is on levels of ecstatic (and even emotional).
