Dailies | Bryan Cranston Dishes on His ‘Power Rangers’ Past (Video)
The "Breaking Bad" star revealed his unexpected impact on the kids' series during Reddit AMA
Bryan Cranston reminded fans just how much of a mighty morphin' actor he really is during an AMA session on Reddit this week.
Although Cranston rose to fame as Hal, the quirky dad on Fox sitcom "Malcom in the Middle," and has won three Emmys for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of meth chef Walter White on AMC's "Breaking Bad," the 57-year-old thespian began his three decade-long career like any other actor — taking any gig he could get.
And as any nostalgic child of the '90s should appreciate, two of those gigs were voicing bad guys on the original "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" television series. His voice can only be heard in two episodes, but his name was never forgotten.
"I did voice work for the 'Power Rangers' years and years ago," Cranston wrote. "Someone once told me they named the blue Power Ranger after me, his last name was Cranston. I found out years later that was true."
According to his IMDb profile, Cranston voiced alien foes Snizard and Twinman in two 1993 episodes titled "Foul Play in the Sky" and "A Bad Reflection of You," respectively.
"Breaking Bad" fans see Cranston's involvement in the children's show as just fate's way of foreshadowing his biggest role to date.
"Blue for the meth," one user immediately commented after Cranston shared the Blue Ranger revelation.
