Ethnicity Revealed, Part 2: Zoe Saldana, Taylor Lautner, Cash Warren And More

Here is the second installment of Blindie's on-going quest to uncover the racial identity of some of Hollywood's multi-racial celebrities. Wentworth Miller: The Prison Break star played a young Anthony Hopkins trying to hide his African American heritage in 2003's The Human Stain and in real life, Miller's racial make-up reads like a laundry list of races and includes African American, Jamaican, German, Jewish, Lebanese, and Syrian, just to name a few. Rosario Dawson: the Seven Pounds star has a mother of Puerto Rican and Afro-Cuban background and a father of Irish and Native American heritage. Taylor Lautner: the teen star plays Quileute tribe member Jacob Black in the vampire flick Twilight and lays claim to French, Dutch and German as well as Native American ancestry in real life. Zoe Saldana: the Star Trek beauty was born in New Jersey and has a Puerto Rican mother and a Dominican father. Corbin Bleu: the High School Musical triple threat has a mother of Italian heritage and a father of Jamaican ancestry. Cash Warren: the Yale University grad is married to Jessica Alba and is the son of the African American actor of the 1980s hit series Hill Street Blues Michael Warren.

High School Musical‘s Corbin Bleu & Monique Coleman Dance For Sara Lee Bread

Granted Zac Efron does big things in the movies, while Vanessa Hudgens nabs deals with Neutrogena and Sears, but we're ecstatic to see our fave heartthrob Corbin Bleu shaking his curls for Sara Lee. Joining him in the peppy commercial is onscreen love Monique Coleman, Lucas Grabeel and Olesya Rulin. The gang will be together again (this time on the big screen) for High School Musical 3: Senior Year in October!

Black Kids Skip ‘School’: Where’s High School Musical‘s Corbin Bleu & Monique Coleman?

In the latest media blitz for Disney's High School Musical 3: Senior Year, stars Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale appear in a Grease-inspired photo spread for Elle. But blatantly missing (once again!) are black stars Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman. Granted Coleman isn't necessarily a major player in the Disney Channel megahit, but Bleu is definitely a tween heartthrob. Although race is the obvious difference between these stars, it still confuses Blindie as to why the media continues to crop out Bleu, who is a hunk in his own right. Coleman, who plays smarty-pants Taylor McKessie in HSM, told Ebony that nabbing the role was important to her so she could "show that the smartest girl in the school is a Black girl!" Of the coverage given to Tisdale, Efron and Hudgens, Coleman told USA Today last month, "It's a popularity situation, and I can be really thrilled by the fact that it hasn't happened to me yet."

Ga Ga: Corbin Bleu, Blindie’s High School Musical Crush

Move over Zac Efron because Corbin Bleu of the hugely successful Disney franchise High School Musical is our new teen crush. Born in Brooklyn to an Italian mother and a Jamaican father, Bleu sports a killer curl-fro that would make most girls jealous. He acknowledges his signature hairdo in an interview with USA Today, "I don't want to cut it just to create shock," but admitted he would consider cutting it for a strong movie role. Unlike his co-star Efron, Bleu isn't on the radar of the celebrity gossip mags but he is popping up at county fairs throughout the country this summer delighting scores of pre-teen girls with high energy songs from his 2007 debut album Another Side. Vanessa Hudgens is scheduled to perform with him at the Iowa State Fair on August 14th.
