'Power Rangers' Reboot Casts Bryan Cranston As Zordon
Another familiar face has been added to the highly anticipated reboot of the 90's TV favorite, "Power Rangers." The film production took to Twiter to announce that "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston has signed on to be the face of Zordon of Eltar, a galactic sage who also serves as the Power Rangers' mentor.

It seems only fitting that the Emmy Award-winning actor would be cast in the "Power Rangers" reboot, as Cranston actually did some voice dubbing work for the original series back in the day. Saban Entertainment, which oversaw the importation of films and TV shows from all over the globe, even went on to name the Blue Ranger, Billy Cranston, after him.

Elizabeth Banks, who had been cast to play the villainous Rita Repulsa last February, also took to Twitter to welcome Cranston into the "Power Rangers" family.
