2001 was a big year for Daniel Southworth (Eric, Time Force). Not only did he make his PR debut on Power Rangers: Time Force that year, but he also appeared in the direct-to-video action sequel "U.S. Seals 2." The film follows the clash between two former martial arts students and U.S. SEALs who become enemies when one of them turns against the fight for good and seeks to ransom innocent lives with a nuclear weapon, if the government doesn't give him the money he wants. The SEALs send in his retired comrade, Casey Sheppard (played by Michael Worth), with a team of martial arts specialists to stop him, given the highly volatile chemicals at work that prevent use of automatic weapons. Daniel Southworth plays Finley, a member of Casey's team who happens to also be a convict, who has reformed himself through religion. Finley fights alongside Casey's team, but is neutralized when his ankle gets caught in a booby trap. He continues to fight but is ultimately killed. Before the bloodshed gets started, he hands off his sacred cross to Casey, hoping he'll give it to his son with positive memories of his father. A full zip of Daniel Southworth's screencaps are available to download below. For fans looking for something more recent featuring Daniel, you can catch him making a brief appearance in the military film, "Act of Valor," which is currently in theaters nationwide.
Dan Ewing (Dillon, RPM) followed in the footsteps of fellow former Ranger, Richard Brancatisano, when he returned to "Home and Away" last year and, like Brancatisano, played a completely different character. Dan Ewing appeared in four episodes back in 2007, as surfer Reuben Humphries, but when Ewing joined the Aussie soap fulltime in January 2011, he took on the role of Heath Braxton, an apparent bad boy and member of the notorious River Boys, a group of tattooed, trouble-making surfers led by the Braxton brothers. The boys descend upon Summer Bay just as local cop, Angelo is trying to get his side business, a nightclub, to take off. He hosts a special singles night and Heath & his brother show up with The River Boys, causing a stir that ultimately leads to a major bar fight when Angelo intervenes to stop Heath's attempts to flirt with his friend Leah as she emerges from the bathroom. Ewing appears in a handful of scenes during Episode #5233.
"Home and Away" currently airs on Seven Network (Australia)
Ten years ago, four Power Rangers alums were embroiled in turmoil, as characters on the teen drama series, "The Tribe." The fifth episode of the show's fourth series, finds the villainous invaders, known as The Technos, gaining more power in the city. James Napier (Conner, Dino Thunder) continues in his role as Techno general, Jay, who tries to retain order amongst his tribe, as he deals with his rebellious brother, Ved and the whims of the Technos' leader, Ram, played by Tom Hern (Devin, Dino Thunder). After discovering that the city's leader, Ebony, may be part of the rebellion against them, Ram orders Jay to take care of her. Jay sneaks into Ebony's room, threatening her, but not harming her, knowing she may be useful later. Ebony later meets with Jay in secret, with hopes of an alliance between them. Outside the city, Antonia Prebble (Clare, Mystic Force) and Beth Allen (Vella, Overdrive) continue as Trudy & Amber, respectively. Trudy grows more afraid for Amber's weak condition, while Amber demands they continue searching for the Gaians, the forest-dwelling tribe that once took her in. Though Amber can barely stay awake and on her feet, she presses on as Trudy fears the Gaians may have fled. When Amber collapses in despair, all hope is lost, until the Gaians appear to them.
Series 4 of "The Tribe" is available on DVD (Non-US)
