A tale of suspense, danger, happiness and rainbows! (note: this is not a real trailer…just incase you were stupid enough to think so.)
Anyone that consumed media in the 80’s – 90’s knew who Ralph Macchio was. Though a name drop like that may not go that far these days. Ralph Macchio is the original star of the Karate Kid films. The series was wildly successful and warmed the hearts of everyone who watched. Then the movies were done and he kinda just fell off the face of the earth. Now, with this new Karate Kid reboot (the one starring Jackie Chan and Will Smith’s kid) being released TODAY it looks as if Mr. Macchio is surfacing again and doing is with some gusto! Throwing away that nice guy persona, strapping a bottle in his hand and shoving a dollar bill up his nose.
So what else did Ralph do? Well, he went on to do some other greats like My Cousin Vinny, Crossroads, Outsiders, and more recently he appeared in multiple episodes of the Ugly Betty television series.
Enjoy the video! Rock and Roll!
