The most interesting part is how this brings his career more or less full circle. Over 20 years ago, Cranston provided the voices for several of the monsters in “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers,” including even a few times in the suit. In fact, as he referenced, the Blue Ranger’s last name was taken from his own. Now he’s gone from monster to mentor, and fans are looking forward to seeing his giant head floating in a tube.
