Bryan Cranston, known for his work on Malcom in the Middle and Breaking Bad, has confirmed on his Twitter that he’ll be playing in the new Power Rangers movie.
Earlier this spring, Lionsgate released the official synopsis for the film which is to be directed by Dean Israelite:
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.
Cranston will play Zordon, a disembodied mentor to the Power Rangers who will help them transition from teenagers to the mighty Power Rangers.
Per the Power Rangers wiki:
Zordon of Eltar was a wise galactic sage who fought for the side of good against the forces of evil. He was known particularly for the creation of the Power Rangers. He appeared in the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and remained a regular character until Power Rangers: Turbo, and died during the finale of Power Rangers in Space.
