Ralph Macchio and William Zabka go back to the Karate Kid dojo!!!
August 4th, 2017 under Ralph Macchio. [ Comments: none ]


Get your Wax On because YouTube Red is doing a Karate Kid revival with Daniel son and Johnny. Not only will Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprise their roles, the 10-episode series will be a comedy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Corba Kai “is set 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament and revolves around a down and out Johnny who, seeking redemption, reopens the infamous Cobra Kai dojo. It reignites his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel, who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita). The half-hour comedy follows the duo addressing demons from their past and present frustrations — through (what else?) karate.”

How much do you want to bet that the wheels for this series, that debuts in 2018, were put into motion when they both guest starred as themselves on How I Met Your Mother? Right then and there, we knew these two needed to do a comedy together! Thankfully someone made it happen and I for one and am beyond excited for it.

Oh, I forgot to mention that Will Smith’s production company is producing the show. To me it sounds like even he knew his son’s remake sucked and the original was a million times better.

Was Robert Downey Jr The Karate Kid?
April 25th, 2016 under Ralph Macchio, Robert Downey Jr.. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t know about you, but I always thought that Ralph Macchio played The Karate Kid. Now I am having second thoughts after Robert Downey Jr shared a photo of himself doing Danielson’s signature move. So now I am confused. They kind of look alike. They started their careers around the same time. They are both in their 50’s and yet they don’t look like it. They both worked with William Zabka. Maybe he can answer that question? Although can you trust a Cobra Kai?

Was Daniel really the bad guy in The Karate Kid?
August 24th, 2015 under Ralph Macchio. [ Comments: 5 ]


So remember on How I Met Your Mother when Barney Stinson said that Daniel was really the villain in The Karate Kid, and we thought it was funny? Well, J Matthew Turner tested out that theory and maybe, Stinson was on to something.
The producers lead us to believe that Daniel was the good guy because he has as a baby face and seemed like the underdog. He might not have been. Studly Johnny wasn’t doing anything wrong until that new kid came to town and then everything seemed to go wrong for him.
So it was all Daniel’s fault, he was the bad guy.
Now, I am going to watch the movie again and I will be team Johnny. Are you still Team Daniel or did you change your mind too? Dang you J Matthew Turner!

UPDATE: Ralph Macchio‘s response to the video is perfect. He Tweeted, “Best part of “who is real bully of KK?” viral vid is the fact that everyone still cares more than 31 years later! #Relevant #Legacy #Gift” And we will still be talking about it 31 years from now.

Karate Kid’s Cobra Kai reunite for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
August 29th, 2014 under ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Ralph Macchio. [ Comments: none ]


It has been 30 years since we got to know the Cobra Kai in The Karate Kid, and they reunited for a good cause. Johnny aka Billy Zabka challenged his Karate buddies to the endure the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and Jimmy, Bobby and Tommy all accepted it. Even Mr Miyagi couldn’t prepare Tony O’Dell, Ron Thomas and Rob Garrison for the pain they were about to feel. Good thing their Sensei was there, not to support them but to push Zabka to pour the water on them. Sadly, for Martin Kove, his students challenged him and immediately sought their revenge.
Too bad Danielson aka Ralph Macchio was nowhere to be found because they have been seeking revenge on him for three decades, and it’s about time they finally got it.
BTW I have been waiting for group to host a reunion for the challenge and I am glad it was these five guys.

An ’80s girl wet dream!
January 6th, 2014 under 80s, Ralph Macchio, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]


Christopher Atkins shared this photo of him with two Outsiders and Renegade from the Hollywood Collectors Show this weekend and several Gen Xers got all excited. That is because the Blue Lagoon star, Ralph Macchio, C Thomas Howell and Lorenzo Lamas all look as sexy now as they did in those ’80s teen mags like BOP and Dynamite. Can believe besides the Soul Man that all of those guys are over 50 because they sure as heck don’t look their age?
Atkins suggested in his Tweet that they do a movie together, and I agree with him. Who wouldn’t like to see this Fab 4 on the big screen in one movie together? I’d pay for it!
