Meet The Fresh All-Latino Cast Of The New ‘Party Of Five’ Reboot Dealing With Immigration

As we reported earlier this year, there’s a new version of “Party of Five” that will be seen soon on the small screen. But this version won’t be like the old one. In fact, the only similarity that the two shows have — as we can see now — is that they’re both two families that are without their parents. The coolest part about this new reboot is that the cast won’t be all white, but all Latino.

The “Party of Five” reboot cast has been announced and we have been given an all Latino cast.

The announcement, reported by Deadline, includes the four major roles of the older siblings, and not the little guy.

The original “Party of Five” followed five siblings who were orphaned when their parents were killed by a drunk driver. Audiences watched the five siblings learn how to grow up without guidance after losing both of their parents.

This version of “Party Of Five” will focus on a Mexican-American family who’s parents — named Gloria and Javier Buendía — have been deported to Mexico, leaving their kids to take care of themselves.

And the cast is nothing like we expected. Here they are…

Brandon Larracuente as the oldest brother.

You may recognize Brandon from “13 Reasons Why” or “Bloodline.” Brandon has been acting since he was eight years old and began his career on the theater stage.

Brandon will be playing the role of Emilio Buendía, an aspiring musician, which Matthew Fox played in the original. Not only does that means he’s the oldest brother, but the main man in charge. But here’s an issue, according to Deadline, “he’s the least responsible of the siblings, and had been enjoying living away from home and the freedom that came with it until his parents’ status was threatened.” Yikes, in fact, Emilio is the reason why the parents first came to the U.S. in the first place.

Emily Tosta as the oldest sister.

Emily comes by way of shows such as “Mayans M.C.” and “NCIS: Los Angeles.” According to her IMDB profile, she was “born in Dominican Republic to a Venezuelan mom and Dominican dad.”

Emily will play the role that made actress Neve Campbell famous. She will be the oldest sister — Lucia Buendía — “a straight-A student with lofty college ambitions until her parents run into trouble with immigration,” Deadline reports.

Niko Guardado as the second oldest brother.

Niko (seen on “The Goldbergs” and “The Fosters”) plays the role of second oldest brother of the family, who is the Scott Wolf character. Many may remember that Wolf was pretty much everyone’s crush when the original show was back on in the ’90s. We’re thinking Niko will take that throne easily.

His name on the show is Beto and is the one that really steps up in the family to take over their parents. Since Emilio isn’t the most responsible brother, Niko is calling the shots.

Elle Paris Legaspi as the youngest sister. 

Legaspi will play 10-year-old Valentina, who was once played by Lacey Chabert. The original character was a little bit annoying. She was always in people’s business, whining about this and that, so we hope Elle doesn’t have to do the same.

According to Deadline, Valentina is “precocious and resourceful” but very vulnerable considering she is still a young child without her mom.

We can’t wait to see this!
