Bill: “Looking at a picture of you and looking at your tattoos, you’ve got lots of them you know from what I can see from looking at your pictures talk about all of that. Talk about all of that a little bit. Why you’ve done it and what they mean to you.”
Jason David Frank: “I was never allowed tattoos on Power Rangers maybe I’ve rebelled a bit.. No, uhh, I just like tattoos you know I have my little girl on my chest and I just like the design you know I’ve started a clothing company so I can tap out Tap Out which is the first Christian clothing line ever which is called Jesus didn’t tap. So, umm you know it’s a Christian company.”

Who is your favorite character that you have voiced?
I had a lot of fun doing The Tick… Kronk was the first Disney movie I got to work on and that was a great experience. They’re both right up there.
How did you end up getting to do the voice of Kronk?
A lot of the time they will have a character drawn out and have a story, but they don’t know what a character sounds like until somebody comes in a shows them. Since Disney is very secretive with their scripts I was only given a few pages. I didn’t know what Kronk was. Was he an ogor, a monster, or robot. He seemed like a renissance henchmen since he cooked, so I figured he sounds like he had a little more like a sensitive guy, kind of like a transvestite.
Did you want to do voices as a kid? And if so, what did they sound like?
I was the smallest kid in High School, 95lbs and wearing coke bottle glasses, I’m blind as a bat, but I would do John Wayne. You had this 95lb kid walking around doing John Wayne impressions.

Where does this adrenaline junking come from?
I was filming for 6 weeks ago and fractured my foot. It really hurt. I thought about where it comes from and I just like the rush of jumping out of an airplane. It’s a sport. Maybe it’s the on edge stuff we do like MMA, jumping from bridges and airplanes. I have a little girl that does front flips in my living room and have Cami who plays with nun-chucks. I don’t really know where it comes from but it really keeps us on our toes and keeps me alive.
If you can be any color Ranger what would it be?
I love the Green Ranger. I love the original cast. But things started getting weird and crazy. Changes kept happening and I kept changing suits. I never regret anything and I can what I want. I love having no pressure. To me, it wasn’t about the color. It was annoying but every season has memories and all different. I grew up with most of these guys. It’s not about money or anything. It’s my choice. I want all my fans to be happy.
