Grey's Anatomy's Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson) wants to mighty-morph into a role beloved by Gen Y television fans: Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger!

The 30-year-old British actress tweeted on May 8 that she wants in on the just announced big-screen reboot of the Power Rangers franchise. "OMG!" she wrote. "Please can I play the #pinkranger!"

In case you missed the news, Lionsgate announced it is teaming up with Saban Brands to make a new film based on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, which itself was adapted from a Japanese series.

The original American series ran from 1993 to 1995. The franchise has since spawned 19 other TV series — Dino Thunder! Operation Overdrive! Megaforce! — and two motion pictures.

We could totally see Camilla playing Kimberly — she even looks a little bit like the original Kimberly, actress Amy Jo Johnson — but it might not work out for the Grey's star. Deadline reports Lionsgate's new film series will focus on power-ranging high-schoolers. Camilla, you look young, but maybe not that young.
