Johnny Yong Bosch
Better known as Adam Park, the second Black Ranger on the fantastical children's superhero series "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers," Johnny Yong Bosch is an accomplished martial artist and performer. Twice an American Anime Award nominee for his extensive portfolio of voice work, Bosch got his break when several of the principal "Power Rangers" actors instigated a contract dispute. Bosch stepped in for Walter Emanuel Jones when talks fell though, and acted as his replacement in two seasons of the original series and in the feature film. He memorably improvised one of the film's best-remembered lines, "I'm a frog," expressing genuine disappointment that his character was imbued with the powers of such a docile animal. He went on to reprise his role as the introverted spiritualist on "Power Rangers Zeo" and "Turbo," two subsequent incarnations of the franchise. Pursuing his voiceover career, Bosch stumbled upon success while redubbing a film in which all his character's audio had been lost. He impressed the film's producer, who scored him an audition for the futuristic Western anime, "Trigun." Bosch not only got the gig but went on to star in dozens of colorful Japanese epics. Among his most famous roles was as the hero Ichigo Kurosaki in the adventure serial "Bleach." Bosch is also a frequent voice actor in video games, and his work has been featured in the prominent "Final Fantasy" and "Devil May Cry" series.
