Bill Hader joins the cast of the "Power Rangers" movie

The new Power Rangers are getting some hilarious help. 

Bill Hader has been tapped to play comical robot assistant Alpha 5 in the movie reboot of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” series, the film’s official Twitter account announced Thursday. 

Bill Hader is ready to get robotic for the Power Rangers reboot.

The “Saturday Night Live” vet joins a cast that already includes Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. The five Power Rangers themselves will be played by RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G., Naomi Scott and Dacre Montgomery.

Hader is no stranger to voice-over work, as he’s provided voices for characters in “Finding Dory,” “Inside Out,” “Sausage Party” and “Bob’s Burgers.” He also provided the vocal sounds that became the voice of BB-8 in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” 

“Power Rangers” will hit theaters March 24, 2017.
