Sesame Street’s newest neighbour is Armando

Armando’s the new kid on the block. As Sesame Street started yet another season (its 44th!) this month, Ismael Cruz Cordova was welcomed to the cast as the newest member of the gang. So who is this guy?

Ismael was born and raised in Puerto Rico and has a BA in fine arts from NYU and you might recognize him from the tv show, The Good Wife. Before Ismael scored the role of Sesame Street’s Armando, he was just like the other actors at the NYC casting call waiting for a chance to show off his acting chops. Take a look at the behind-the-scenes video of auditions, it’s really quite fascinating.
