Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 16) — Filipino-American Broadway actor Josh dela Cruz will help track the clues left by beloved dog Blue in the reboot of "Blue's Clues."

Dela Cruz was tapped to be the host of Nickelodeon's "Blue's Clues & You."

Steve Burns, the host of the original "Blue's Clues," which was launched in 1996, helped pick out dela Cruz.

"I had the great honor of being a part of the search for the new host, and I give Josh two thumbs up!  He can definitely fill my shoes and the rugby shirt," he said.

The Filipino-American actor will host 20 episodes of "Blue's Clues & You," where he will join Blue, as the blue-spotted animated dog invites viewers to join her on a clue-led adventure and solve a daily puzzle.

The production of the educational children's television series will start this month in Toronto.

Dela Cruz also recently appeared in Disney's Aladdin on Broadway, as the understudy for Aladdin and a member of the ensemble.
