Everyone seemed rather giddy over this last week when it was revealed that Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) would be playing Zordon, but did you know he was the Blue Ranger as well?

Thirty-five years ago, Cranston was doing dubbing work for the TV series Power Rangers, and he did it so often they named the Blue Ranger after the actor.

This isn’t a new revelation, the news came to light that Billy Cranston and Bryan Cranston were tied together was revealed way back in 2013.

Cranston talked to Entertainment Tonight about how Zordon will be brought to life.

The Power Rangers movie arrives in theaters on March 24, 2017.

    I think you mean 25 years ago — the Japanese source material for the first season of Power Rangers was still about 10 years from reality in 1981.

      This article was sent from 10 years in the future, where Stephen is currently on vacation. They just forgot to edit it.

      Watch the video… those are Cranston’s words, not mine. And, because he was dubbing for English and not the American Power Rangers show that we all know (and love), that time might be right on.
