Lionsgate has cast its fourth ranger for the upcoming Power Rangers reboot. RJ Cyler will play the Blue Ranger.
The casting of newcomers continues for this Power Rangers reboot. The film will be the first big project for Cyler, who played a small role in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Cyler’s casting leaves just one ranger left for the upcoming reboot, the yellow ranger.
Here’s a rumored character description of The Blue Ranger (courtesy of Collider).
Billy – 17 years old, slight and awkward. Billy is challenged in his abilities to communicate and interact socially. Whip-smart and sweet, but always odd. Sometimes in a fun way, sometimes not, Billy is a kid with no filter. Showing his emotions, understanding sarcasm, and dealing with his OCD is a constant challenge. Has never really had any friends and instantly gravitates towards Jason.
