Lionsgate has cast its third ranger for the upcoming Power Rangers reboot. Ludi Lin will play the Black Ranger.
Lin is another relative newcomer who starred in an episode of the TV series Marco Polo. He also stars in the foreign/indie film Monster Hunt. The young actor has experience and seems to have impressed the filmmakers with his work so far.
Here’s a rumored character description of The Black Ranger (courtesy of Collider).
Zack – 17 years old, always the life of the party. Filled with bravado and swagger, Zack’s tough and cool on the exterior. A charming guy who’s never had trouble with the one-liner, nor lacked confidence around women. A great athlete that’s never wanted to play on any team but his own. Zack advertises everything about himself, except the truth, which is that he lives in a trailer park with his single mom, and because of it, feels deeply inferior to all his peers.
