Sesame Street acknowledges diversity with a multi-ethnic cast, and as the Hispanic community grows in the US, Sesame Workshop has decided to add a brand-new Spanish-speaking cast member. Tough Pigs has a collection of videos that documents the audition process, from the open casting call and callbacks to the final announcement on Good Morning, America. The lucky new neighbor is Ismael Cruz Cordova, who will now forever be known as Armando in America’s collective consciousness. Armando, or Mando for short, will make his debut next season and teach children about being a friend, the Letter and Number of the Day, and how to speak Spanish. Love the hair, dude!
