Bulk is Back!
Paul Schrier is no stranger to Power Rangers, having first portrayed the character of Bulk in the shows original pilot episode. (The episode was later condensed and aired as part of the “Lost Episode” special in 1999.) Since then, Schrier’s “Bulk” character has become a favorite among fans, and has been depicted as many things, including a high school bully, a law enforcement figure, and a UFO conspiracy theorist to name a few. Schrier himself has also directed two episodes of the Mighty Morphin’ Alien Rangers mini–series, “Attack of the 60′ Bulk,” coincidentally the show’s 150th episode, and “Water you thinking?” In addition to directing, Mr. Schrier also voiced the Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue villian Infinitor, and the Power Rangers Time Force villian Severax, making him the only actor to appear on the show in some form for ten consecutive seasons, and nine consecutive years.
