By now most of you know that Jason David Frank, who starred as the Green Ranger/Tommy Oliver in the original Power Rangers franchise, and Amy Jo Johnson, who portrayed the original Pink Ranger/Kimberly Hart, make a brief appearance in the recently-released Power Rangers movie. They appeared together at the end of the film, playing citizens of Angel Grove who are awestruck by the sight of the Megazord. Both of them, along with extras gathered around them, whip out their phones to snap photos and record video.
Today, JDF has shared a photo (view below) of their cameo, and the caption reads: "Taking pictures is what I do!!"
Interestingly enough, that wasn't the first cameo they filmed. "The first cameo we did was cut. Me and Amy were filming in the Krispy Kreme," Frank told THR. "I grew a ponytail out for that. I was thinking, 'If I grow the ponytail out, I'll shock the fans when they see me.' We shot a scene there with Rita [Elizabeth Banks], and we were dressed in green and pink."
Also, two days ago, JDF posted a video of his journey to Vancouver to shoot the second cameo and meeting up with Johnson once again. "The first time I filmed the cameo, it was like... It really wasn't that good. It wasn't," he says in it. "So this time, I think it's going to be a better cameo."
