Bryan Cranston has joined the cast of the Power Rangers movie. The Breaking Bad actor will play Zordon, the wise galactic sage who put together the Power Rangers team.
While it may be surprising, Cranston already has a history with the franchise. He once voiced some of the original monsters on the show, including Snizzard.
The film will be released in 2017 and is directed by South African filmmaker Dean Israelite.
