Fil-Am actor to headline 'Blues Clues'.

A Filipino-American actor will be Blue's new partner in the upcoming reboot of the hit Nickelodeon children's show 'Blues Clues'.

Broadway actor Joshua Dela Cruz was personally chosen by the original host, Steve Burns, when Nickelodeon asked him to help them search for the right guy who will be his successor.

"I know that they saw thousands and thousands of people. And when we saw Josh, I turned to everyone and said we can start filming tomorrow," Burns told the Huffington Post.

"He was phenomenal from Day One," he continued.

"Imagination and authenticity - those are the two major requisites for the role, and he has them big time," Burns added.
