Dacre Montgomery stars as Angel Grove High School's former star quarterback, Jason Scott. He becomes the Red Ranger and leader of the Power Rangers after landing in detention following a prank gone wrong.
Dacre Montgomery is making his Hollywood debut with "Power Rangers." The Aussie actor, who launched his career as a pre-teen and graduated from the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2015, previously appeared in the black comedy "Safe Neighborhood," which played at film festivals in late 2016. Later this year, he can be seen in the Australian comedy "A Few Less Men" and on the second season of Netflix's "Stranger Things."
Naomi Scott stars as ostracized former mean girl Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger.
Naomi Scott made her acting debut in 2009 on the Disney Channel U.K.'s "Life Bites." Then in 2011, she portrayed Maddy Shannon on "Terra Nova" and starred as Mohini on the Disney Channel Original Movie "Lemonade Mouth." The British beauty, who also appeared in 2015's "The 33," has released two EPs: 2014's "Invisible Division" and 2016's "Promises." Naomi wed British soccer stud Jordan Spence in 2014 after a four-year courtship.
RJ Cyler stars as super-smart and tech savvy Blue Ranger Billy Cranston, who claims to have a social disorder.
RJ Cyler — whose family relocated from Florida to California so that he could pursue his career — made his feature film debut in the critically acclaimed 2015 dramedy "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl." He also appeared on three episodes of the HBO comedy "Vice Principals" in 2016. Later this year, he can be seen on Netflix's Brad Pitt dramedy "War Machine" and on "I'm Dying Up Here," Showtime's dramedy about the lives of stand-up comedians.
Becky G stars as quiet loner Trini, a lesbian who's relatively new to Angel Grove High School. She's also the Yellow Ranger.
Though Becky G started acting as a child to help financially support her family, "Power Rangers" is her major feature film debut. After appearing in a few extremely small roles and singing with a couple of girl groups, she scored her big break when her YouTube videos caught the attention of producer Dr. Luke (of Kesha infamy), who signed her to his Kemosabe Records label in 2011. In 2013, the singer-actress released her debut single, "Becky from the Block," and EP "Play It Again." Though she's released several songs since then, the native Californian — who found success as an actress when she starred on two episodes of "Empire" in 2015 — has yet to release her debut studio album. She dated Austin Mahone in 2015 and has been with American soccer star Sebastian Lletget since 2016. (They were set up by Becky's "Power Rangers" co-star Naomi Scott, who is married to a soccer star herself!)
Ludi Lin stars as thrill-seeking and adventurous Black Ranger Zack, who rarely makes it to class at Angel Grove High School due to problems at home.
Ludi Lin appeared in several Chinese productions, including the hit film "Monster Hunt," while working toward his Hollywood feature film debut: "Power Rangers." His first big break stateside came in 2012 with the Lifetime movie "Holiday Spin." The Chinese actor — who's lived in Australia and Canada — then appeared on a 2016 episode of Netflix's "Marco Polo." He's studied Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling; he dances, skateboards and snowboards; and he earned a bachelor's degree in dietetics from the University of British Columbia.
Elizabeth Banks stars as power-hungry former Green Ranger Rita Repulsa, the Power Rangers' main antagonist.
Elizabeth Banks made her feature film debut in 1998's "Surrender Dorothy." Since then, she's appeared in "Wet Hot American Summer," "Spider-Man," "Catch Me If You Can," "Seabiscuit," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Role Models," "The Hunger Games," "Magic Mike XXL" and "Pitch Perfect," which she also produced. The funnywoman, who made her feature film directorial debut with 2015's "Pitch Perfect 2," has earned two Emmy nominations for her work on "30 Rock" and one for her portrayal of Sal on "Modern Family." The multi-hyphenate also popped up regularly on "Scrubs" from 2006 to 2009. Elizabeth wed her college sweetheart, producer Max Handelman, in 2003. They now have two sons: Felix and Magnus.
Bryan Cranston portrays former Red Ranger Zordon, the Power Rangers' mentor who got stuck in the Morphing Grid after he died while battling Rita when dinosaurs still ruled the earth.
Bryan Cranston made his acting debut on a 1968 episode of "One Life to Live." He appeared on countless television shows — from "Seinfeld" and "3rd Rock from the Sun" to "The X-Files" and "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" — over the course of the next three decades and even voiced two characters on "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" in 1993! But it wasn't until 2000 that he debuted in his breakthrough role: Hal on "Malcolm in the Middle." The native Californian earned three Emmy nominations for his work on the show, which ran until 2006. Two years later, "Breaking Bad" debuted. Bryan won four Emmys for his work on the AMC drama, which helped him earn more significant film roles. In 2016, he earned his first Oscar nomination for his performance in "Trumbo." Bryan met his second wife, actress Robin Dearden, on the 1986 set of the CBS series "Airwolf." Their daughter, Taylor Dearden, stars as Ophelia on MTV's "Sweet/Vicious." (Bryan was previously married to writer Mickey Middleton.) He currently stars on Amazon's "Sneaky Pete" and recently appeared in the 2016 comedy "Why Him?"
Bill Hader is the voice of Alpha 5 — who's undergone a major makeover since his original iteration! The android is Zordon's assistant and helps train the Power Rangers.
Bill Hader debuted on "Saturday Night Live" in 2005. Since then, he's appeared in comedies "You, Me and Dupree," "Knocked Up," "Hot Rod," "Superbad," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Pineapple Express," "Tropic Thunder," "Paul," "Men in Black 3," "Trainwreck" and more! He's also earned several Emmy nominations over the years, has written for and produced "South Park" and created the IFC anthology series "Documentary Now!" with Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers. The multi-hyphenate wed writer-director Maggie Carey in 2006. They now have three daughters: Hannah, Harper and Hayley. HBO recently picked up his comedy series "Barry." Bill will star as the titular hitman, who decides he wants to become an actor, when the show debuts in 2018.
