Do you by chance remember Power Rangers Turbo? More importantly, do you remember this kid?:
For those of you unfamiliar with this series (lol), this is Justin, the Blue Turbo Ranger. His character was introduced in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, and the kid that played Justin, Blake Foster, was both a replacement for Steve Cardenas (Rocky from MMPR season 2 to Zeo) and the youngest actor to ever portray a Power Ranger. Well, now little Blake is all grown up, he’s finished with school, but it looks like he might not be finished with Power Rangers just yet.
Blake Foster recently attended the Anime Festival Orlando Convention, and a staff member at the convention “overheard” something very interesting Foster was talking about with another conventioner.
Here’s a paraphrase of the supposed conversation:
Fan: Are you going to come back to acting?
Blake Foster: I’m thinking about it. I’m done with school now.
Fan: Would you come back to Power Rangers?
Blake Foster: I’d like to. They’ve asked if I’d be interested, I don’t know if it’d be as the same character or someone new.
Well, if this is true, then that would certainly be interesting, to say the least. It’s certainly within the realm of possibility. They’ve brought actors back in the past, whether it was to reprise an old role or have them take on a new one (Power Rangers Samurai currently has three actors that fit that description). And since open casting calls for next year’s batch of Power Rangers are just around the corner, there could be a real possibility that they could bring Foster back in either his old role or in a brand new role. Either way, it would be cool to see him in Power Rangers again. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
