  1. I remember seeing Caleb in an episode of “What Would You Do?” and he was playing the part of a neglected foster child. He was breaking everyone’s hearts.

  2. So…why is it only S1 characters? This was literally made today. S2 is out, and the majority of characters have been in many movies.

    Like, why not Dacre Montgomery (Billy) as the Red Ranger? Or just about any role of Sean Astin?
