SNL and “Trainwreck” comedian Bill Hader is set to take on the role of the robot Alpha 5 in the upcoming “Power Rangers” reboot which wrapped production the other month.
The character is an ally who works for Zordon (Bryan Cranston) and has a sibling-like relationship with the Rangers. He joins a cast that includes Elizabeth Banks as the villain Rita Repulsa, and the rangers themselves played by RJ Cyler, Becky G., Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott and Dacre Montgomery.
Lionsgate released five character posters from the film this week and will unveil the first footage next month at New York Comic Con. The film itself opens March 24th 2017.
