ALL OF THE FOLLOWING POWER RANGER ROLES are a group of five teens 18-23 years to play 15-19 years. They are all nice looking, charismatic, energetic, outgoing and confident. They must have SUPER HERO LOOKS with average height and in great physical condition. Martial arts or gymnastics is a plus, but not mandatory. We are hoping for a very young looking cast this season.
[RED RANGER – REESE] Any ethnicity male, 18 – 23 to play 17-19 years. Reese is an attractive young man with super hero looks and a nice athletic build. He is a natural leader with honorable intentions. He is a much disciplined young man.[BLACK RANGER – BARON] All ethnicity Male, 18 to 23 to play 17-19. He has good looks with a slim build. He is fearless, fun and athletic. He wears his heart on his sleeve.[BLUE RANGER – PARRY] Any ethnicity Male, 18 to early twenties to play 16-19 years. He is a bit on the nerdy side. He is a studious and highly intelligent.

[PINK RANGER – SADIE] Any ethnicity, 18 to 23 to play 16 to 19 years. Average height. Sadie is a beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent and confident. She is very intuitive and genuinely cares about others.

[YELLOW RANGER – AVA] Any ethnicity, 18 to early twenties to play 16 to 18 years of age. Average height. Ava is STUNNING and athletic. She is generally unflappable and tough, but has a heart of gold. A young Angelina Jolie type.

Yep, everything you’ll need for said auditions. And for my fellow toku fans, I can now hereby confirm that the 20th season of Power Rangers will be based off of Tensou Sentai Goseiger and not any later Super Sentai series like many had predicted. And because they haven’t formally announced the series yet, the show still doesn’t have an official title, though the name “Power Rangers Megaforce” was trademarked last year by Saban Brands last year, so that may still possibly be the title. Anyway, here’s a little sneak preview of what the next team of Rangers will look like:

A fitting bunch to represent the 20th Anniversary celebration of the Power Rangers franchise, don’t you think?

Anyway, some possible spoilers: This group will use card-based attacks, which will include special cards for morphing and summoning their zords. And a new twist on the zords: instead of constantly summoning new zords to create some massive thrown-together eyesore, the will summon attachable zord heads which will unlock new combinations and special moves. In the original Goseiger, they went up against three different enemy organizations, with one enemy constantly reappeaing, but they might not include all three if they don’t run it for two seasons. And yes, there is a sixth ranger, but it won’t be another teenager, or human for that matter!

Aright, enough spoilers for today. Just get out there and start sending in you resumes! That goes for all of you that have been asking about this new updated info since last June.

UPDATE: As of Friday, May 25th, they have stopped accepting new auditions for this next season of Power Rangers, and are now moving onto the next stage of the process, whittling down the number of applicants. Currently, they have about 50 people per role, so it will probably be awhile before we hear anything about an official cast. And yes, there has been unofficial confirmation from people auditioning that one of the roles is for a Black Ranger, confirming a Goseiger adaption. Yes, I know that some of the casting sides were straight out of Go-Kaiger episodes, but that doesn’t mean diddly squat at the moment.

Long Overdue UPDATE: To anyone still interested, I posted this story months ago, and the audition process for this future season of Power Rangers (a.k.a. Power Rangers Megaforce) has been over. The new cast has been picked and revealed already, so please, DO NOT POST ANY MORE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW! This is NOT a casting agency website, this is just an informational fan blog. I have no influence over the casting process whatsoever, I’m just a fan like the rest of you. So unless you want to get spammed like crazy, please stop leaving you personal information. And just to be clear, I have no idea when they will be auditioning for future Ranger series, so don’t ask about that either.

henshinhead EXCLUSIVE!: Official character breakdowns for next Power Rangers series! Seriously!!

Wow, for once, I’m the one reporting on a breaking story! Anyway, as you all know, recently some casting sides popped up for the next Power Rangers series, sides which weren’t more than the ones released the year before. Well, now we may actually have the real character names and bios for this upcoming series! On a breakdown service website (a website that send out audition information to people who may qualify for certain roles), a breakdown showed up for a project simply titled “Power Rangers”, and it includes breakdowns of the five main Ranger roles. Exclusive from henshinhead, here’s the character breakdowns that popped up on that page:

ALL OF THE FOLLOWING POWER RANGER ROLES are a group of five teens 18-23 years to play 15-19 years. They are all nice looking, charismatic, energetic, outgoing and confident. They must have SUPER HERO LOOKS with average height and in great physical condition. Martial arts or gymnastics is a plus, but not mandatory.

[ RED RANGER – REESE ]
Any ethnicity male, 18 – 23 to play 17-19 years. Reese is an attractive young man with super hero looks and a nice athletic build. He is a natural leader with honorable intentions. He is a much disciplined young man.

[ BLACK RANGER – BARON ]
All ethnicity Male, 18 to 23 to play 17-19. He has good looks with a slim build. He is fun and witty with great comedic abilities. He is very creative and not afraid to think outside the box.

Yes, I know they almost sound like the current set of Rangers, but what can you do when you have a very popular show that you only planned on fiming two season of? Anyway, this is a henshinhead EXCLUSIVE (I want to just hammer that point across to everyone that reads this. As of the time I’m writing and publishing this post, NO ONE ELSE has reported on this), brought to you by your favorite toku blogger.

For those of you interested in seeing the entire breakdown, just click here. (Note: you will need an actos access account to view it, but don’t fret because it’s free to sign up).

So Miguel, you still want to wait ’til the next round of audition?

UPDATE: Okay, so I noticed that there were a few important things I forgot to mention. Here’s the bulk of it:

Casting Director: Iris Hampton
Interview Dates: TBD
Callback Dates: TBD
Shoot/Start Date: December 2011
Pay Rate: APPROX Salary 70/hr or 1,000NZD per day. Favored nation
Location: New Zealand

Yep, they’ll start filming in December, and it’s being filmed in New Zealand again. And here’s something else to think about:

Special Notes:  ALL TALENT must be willing to relocate to New Zealand for approx. 6-8 months. Must have valid or current passport with at least one (1) year left before renewal or able to get one. Please note the names noted in the character breakdown are temporary names for the Rangers needed for this season. PLEASE NO PHONE CALLS AT THIS TIME. 

So for those of you who are really REALLY interested, just make sure that you have a passport and that your willing to travel to another country for half a year. Getting picked to be on the show is a great opportunity, but only if your willing, able, and absolutely sure that you want to go that far to do it. And if you are, then you already have one person rooting for you to get the part. 😉
