The original Red Ranger is a paramedic, and by the looks of it Skull is a host for a TruTV show while Bulk went off and founded Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band.

From what I've read Bulk and Skull are still very close freinds.

weirdneighbour: You purposely murder somebody


Well, he wasn't trying to murder the other guy, just rough him up a bit. Maybe make a few sparks fly out of his chest area. I mean, the other guy hadn't even grown yet before he keeled over and died; that had to have been very confusing. Manslaughter seems about right.

"Known" for being in the Samurai spinoff?

So... essentially not known by anyone, and probably not even a SAG member?

I'm sorry, but she was never arrested for that, regardless of how many times you imagined her a prisoner in handcuffs.

Imagined? You don't have to waste precious blood to your brain for imagining stuff like that...

I never watched Power Rangers but let me guess this actor was an extra that appeared on one or two episodes.

/got yelled at by a cow-orker because I told her 12 year old son watching PR in my cube that yellow ranger died in 2001.  He didn't take it well.

Did yoit ever notice the racism of the show. The girl ranger was pink. The black ranger was black. The Asian ranger was yellow???!!!

Am I the only one that noticed this?

The article is wrong.  He was the red ranger in Power Rangers Wild Force.  He wasn't in Power Rangers Samurai.

No, people definitely complained at the time.  Then, when they swapped out rangers they made the black ranger Asian and the yellow ranger black.  There's never been an Asian yellow ranger since, and there's only been one other black black ranger.

He was actually in both.  He was one of the bad guys in Samurai in addition to the Wild Force Red Ranger.

I didn't know that, but it looks like he was a voice of a bad guy.  So... I guess it's technically accurate but maybe not the best way to describe someone you're calling a "power ranger actor" that played the actual red ranger in a different season.

Really?  Never knew that. Then again I hardly ever watched the show. I just remember seeing a clip or two of that original series and laughing at how overtly stereotyped the colors were.

Kids used to joke about it when I was young... "ha ha, the black ranger is black" and "ha ha, the yellow ranger is yellow."  Then I would throw in "ha ha, the red ranger's a communist" and the other kids would just stare blankly at me.
