Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor Bryan Cranston has been named for the role of the mighty mentor Zordon in the Power Rangers film slated for 2017. His numerous acting credits include the lead role of Walter White on Breaking Bad, the hilarious dad Hal on Malcolm in the Middle, as well as the big screen turn portraying a real-life scandalized screenwriter in Trumbo and the stage performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson in the play All The Way, later turned into an HBO movie of the same name in which he also starred.
But Power Rangers fans will always know him best as the voices of Snizard and Twin Man from the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. His work on the show inspired the writing staff to give Billy his last name.
Here’s what Bryan had to say about the news through his first tweet on the subject:
