Bryan Cranston Cast as Zordon in POWER RANGERS Movie!
Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) has brilliantly been cast in the role of Zordon in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. Zordon! Can you believe it?! If you can't, the news comes from Cranston himself! This is the tweet he sent out earlier today:
I would have never thought in a million years that Cranston would be cast as Zordon in the Power Rangers movie, but it's happening, and it's awesome! Zordon serves as the Power Rangers' mentor, and Cranston is going to great as the character!
In case you didn't already know, this isn't the first time the actor has been involved with the franchise. He previously provided voices for series' earlier projects. He was so popular with cast and crew that a character was actually named after the actor. That character was Billy Cranston, the Blue Ranger. It's so cool that he's making a comeback to the franchise.
Cranston joins the previously cast actors that include Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. You can see what the Power Rangers' costumes look like here.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
Power Rangers is currently in production, and it hits theaters on March 24, 2017.
