LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Bill Hader has joined the cast of Lionsgate's upcoming Power Rangers revival as Alpha 5.

"Aye-yi-yi! Welcome #BillHader as #Alpha5 to the #PowerRangersMovie - Coming in 2017!" the studio noted on Instagram Thursday, referencing the character's signature catch-phrase.

In the original Power Rangers television show, Alpha 5 was portrayed as the robot companion to Zordon, set to be portrayed by Bryan Cranston who signed onto the film back in June.

Hader and Cranston will be joined by Elizabeth Banks as the evil Rita Repulsa and Becky G (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger) and RJ Cycler (Blue Ranger).

Directed by Dean Israelite, Power Rangers blasts into theaters March 24, 2017.
