News of Naomi Scott's casting as Kimberley the Pink Ranger broke some weeks ago. Now we get news of the Red Ranger Jason being casts.
Jason – 17 years old, the makings of someone or something great if he would just get out of his own way. Jason was a legend of this town—a freshman quarterback with the skills to take him all the way. People knew his name. Children wore his jersey. Until, one night Jason wrapped his car around a pole and busted out his knee. Everything Jason was going to become ended in an instant. And with it, he lost himself. When we meet him at the start of the film, he’s a kid in need of redemption. By the end, he’ll be leading this disparate group of teens to shed their individual baggage and find who they truly are.
Dacre Montgomery is your Red Ranger his IMDB looks almost as empty as mine with 3 acting credits including Power Rangers, other than that he's had a TV movie in 2011 Family Tree Pilot Trailer and a short Betrand the Terrible. He's listed at 5'11 and given the age of Naomi Scott (22) it's safe to say he will be around that same age. Like everyone I have a knee jerk read ton and it's... Um huh? I won't go overboard, but there are a number of actors who I'm sure fans wanted to see. They really went the unknown route with this one. Jason is the face of the Rangers, the leader of the group and for this movie Montgomery has a lot to live up to as far as expectations. Let's see how the rest of the cast shapes out and here is to hoping Montgomery kills it.
