Another person has been added to the cast of Swamp Thing on DC Universe, and he is a former Power Ranger.

The cast for DC Universe’s Swamp Thing series remake keeps on expanding, adding numerous names of note. Will Patton, Henderson Wade, and Virginia Madsen are already on board, and the most recent update revealed Ian Ziering would show up to portray Blue Devil. Well, the casting director isn’t giving the blue motif a rest just yet with the show’s newest addition.

Revenge of the Fans reports RJ Cyler, the actor best known in the last couple of years for playing the Blue Ranger, science wiz Billy Cranston, in the latest Power Rangers feature film, is coming to the swamps of Houma. Cyler’s role is not known at this time but it could be huge. It’s already well-publicized Swamp Thing will have Blue Devil, Floronic Man, Madame Xanadu, and the magic of the swamp at work.

Cyler is a young actor and has been at it only a few years. He burst onto the scene a short time ago, starting back in 2013. Since then, he has been able to land steady work on a number of high profile projects and critically acclaimed indies. His credits include Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl, a film directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (director of The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake, 2014, and a personal assistant-cum-second unit director for Martin Scorsese, Nora Ephron, and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), War Machine with Brad Pitt, The CW’s Black Lightning, White Boy Rick with Matthew McConaughey, and a recurring role on MTV’s Scream TV series.

Cyler boasts an impressive resume of serialized television and big franchises, not to mention the fact he routinely works with veritable heavyweights of the industry.
