Personal Quote:

[on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995)] From what I've seen, it's innocuous. There's a lot of kung fu fighting, but you never see blood or indeed any impact. It's a bit like those Bruce Lee films, but without all the grunting and groaning. See more »

Trivia:

He claimed he had never heard of The Power Rangers when he was cast as Ivan Ooze in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995). See more »
