Halle and Steve step out on Sesame Street

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

Halle Berry and Steve Carell (pic­tured) have filmed seg­ments for the new sea­son of the US chil­dren’s TV show Sesame Street. The Os­car­win­ning ac­tress ap­pears along­side Elmo for a skit in which the pair ex­plain the mean­ing of the word ‘‘nib­ble’’. Fun­ny­man Carell helps ex­plain the mean­ing of ‘‘vote’’. Other guests who ap­pear in Sesame Street’s 43rd sea­son are Jon Hamm, Zac Efron, David Beck­ham and Brides­maids star Melissa McCarthy. Rock band Train recorded a new ver­sion of the hit Drive By, re­named Five By, to help view­ers with maths. Mean­while, Sesame Street is look­ing for a new His­panic char­ac­ter to join its reg­u­lar cast. The pop­u­lar chil­dren’s show, which de­buted in 1969, tries to re­flect Amer­ica’s chang­ing de­mo­graph­ics. Maria (played by So­nia Man­zano) and Luis (Emilio Del­gado) joined the show in 1971. The char­ac­ter of Rosita, the turquoise mon­ster with enor­mous arms, an orange nose and pink eye­brows, de­buted in 1993.
