Power Rangers actor R.J. Cyler has joined the cast of CW's Black Lightningaccording to Deadline.

Cyler, who played Billy in 2017's Power Rangers reboot film, will reportedly play Todd Green, described as a "gangly and awkward tech genius who’s passed over for a research grant." Green's bitterness will lead him to join with Black Lightning's nemesis, Tobias Whale.

The character, who Deadline says will recur through the show's second season, does not appear to correspond to a character from comic books.

Black Lightning airs Tuesday nights on CW.
