The Blue Ranger is named after Bryan Cranston?! The Academy Award nominee tells Larry King that’s the case, explaining his 35-year history with the ‘Power Rangers’ franchise and why he decided to join the upcoming film as Zordon. Plus, Cranston on how the movie will differ from the TV series.

Bryan Cranston explains his long history with the ‘Power Rangers’ franchise, his recently announced role as Zordon in the upcoming movie, and reveals the difference between the ‘Power Rangers’ series and the movie, as well as giving insight into how he plans to “find” his character.

Cranston remembers his early days in the business when he worked as a voiceover actor, dubbing ‘Power Rangers’ into English.

Cranston clarifies that the upcoming movie will be a “completely different, re-imagined ‘Power Rangers’” that will differ from the TV show fans are familiar with.
