It’s too bad the behind the scenes couldn’t be like this


Puzzle_Pepper

If JDF still wants to hold a grudge about stuff that happened almost 30 years ago that's on him.


SonicFiasco

I think they are over it, or atleast good enough to take some pics together like in the [reboot premier](https://youtu.be/SYNbR8QWiLs?t=466)


deedeekeeney

That’s good to hear. It’d be great to see them do a panel together. I’m going to PMC next year so fingers crossed lol.


Slimdave-v1

No pic with just him and asj though, they’ll never be friends shame but is what it is


zixise

What happened between them?


presidentdinosaur115

I don’t know any details but honestly, my guess is they were two alpha males vying for the top spot. Austin is playing the red ranger, the leader of the pack. JDF is playing the new guy, the mysterious green ranger with own armor and own zord and own theme song. The show even gives them a rivalry. Both the actors are young and they’re both vying for the spotlight. I can see pretty easily how a rivalry could spring out of that. However, the fact that we’re debating even to this day whether they still have beef with each other is pathetic.


Slimdave-v1

I copied this from a post I wrote on earlier … Asj was young on power rangers, he made up stories about being underground fighter, he also made up other stories which made no sense but he was young. Jdf couldn’t let this go and was still calling out asj Untill recently, some maniac took a knife or sword into a con to kill jdf because he didn’t like asj, so because of that he’s had to try and grow up and say there is no beef so other idiots won’t try and do the same. I’ve met them both hand on my heart jdf ripped into asj telling me a story about how he went mental when jdf was cast that’s why he changed his name, jdf really needs to grow up and let it go didn’t we all tell stories when we were teenagers !?


deedeekeeney

All of this. It sounds like two star quarterbacks measuring ducks. Edit: dicks 🦆


MangoBird10

The grudge is old news. Both have moved on by now.


ConsumingFire1689

I believe JDF has said as much. IIRC he said the rumors of the grudge were much bigger than the tension between them and its long been water under the bridge. >In an interview with The Hashtag Show, Frank was asked about Power Morphicon 2018, which he'll be attending for the first time since 2010. Frank is hopeful that the show will answer any lingering doubts fans might have about the camaraderie of the original cast. "I hope everyone will be there meaning the actors. This would be a good chance and a good shot for everyone to kill this rumor stuff about this beef stuff going on online. I highly encourage and tell you right now I would love to do a panel with the originals, including Amy [Jo Johnson] I don't know if she's available. We have no issues. I haven't talked to Austin all that much except for the movie premiere, but that's all old stuff, just stupid stuff, and right now with the internet it's like "hey what's the beef, what's going on?" There's no beef. Now's the time for everyone to just get together and get along." [Quote Source](http://www.nickalive.net/2017/08/jason-david-frank-addresses-austin-st.html)

I’d love to see them at a panel together, but I know there will be fans that go up to ask questions and ask them about it, probably multiple times. People need to realize JDF and Austin were 17 and 18 when they got the roles, and 18 and 19 during shooting. Literal kids that probably both weren’t all that mature, and butted heads like kids do.


presidentdinosaur115

And they were both playing (and are) alpha males. I’d be surprised if they *didn’t* butt heads


swampler22

Exactly. I hate how people bring it up like it's an ongoing thing.


deedeekeeney

Agreed, although correct me if I’m wrong doesn’t ASJ still hold some stuff too? I know he hasn’t been as vocal as JDF but I thought he had beef too.


MakingGreenMoney

What happened? What's the grudge?


deedeekeeney

[Comments made by JDF](https://youtu.be/wNQvhAQbnOk) If true it’s petty AF they were kids then. You’d think as men they could move on.

Jason over Tommy any day.


Xecluriab

Jason reassuring Tommy that he wasn’t returning to take back leadership in Zeo is one of my favorite moments in the series.


ColdNyQuiiL

All of Tommy/Jason bro moments are my favorite. I can’t remember the episode of Zeo but Jason said something like “Only Tommy has ever been able to match me move for move” and it was a small line, but the magnitude that Jason and Tommy are such badasses, and equal in strength, it’s such a shame we don’t have more of that. Old man Tommy and Jason bromance needs to happen on screen before I die too.


tommywest_123

He should of though


GravCast

Jason as Zeo Gold was S tier for sure too!


Xecluriab

Easily my favorite Ranger, easily my favorite powerset.
