Bill Hader Joins ‘Power Rangers’ As The Voice Of Alpha 5

Aye-yi-yi! Bill Hader has officially joined 2017’s Power Rangers reboot as the voice of robot Alpha 5. The SNL alum is just the latest addition to a cast list that already boasts Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.

Hader is no stranger to voice acting. He’s most recently had major roles in Inside OutSausage Party, and The Angry Birds Movie. He also famously acted alongside Ben Schwartz as a voice consultant for BB-8 in last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Alpha 5 is a key player in the lives of the Mighty Morphin teenangers. The robot serves as both a friend and an assistant to the Rangers, and acts alongside Zordon to guide them in their quest against Rita Repulsa.

SABAN’S POWER RANGERS follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat.  Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

The film is scheduled for release on March 24, 2017.
