Ralph Macchio, the original Karate Kid, is getting another shot in Hollywood! The actor has been keeping busy by playing small parts on television over the last decade and even had a recurring role ABC’s Ugly Betty, and he was most recently on Dancing With the Stars but he just signed on for his first major motion picture in years!
The 50-year-old (who looks at least 10 years younger) is set to play Joe Stefano, the screenwriter of Psycho, in Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho. We know it’s a big deal because he’ll be co-starring with Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Biel! Dancing with the Stars really does a lot for re-surrecting careers. I am so happy for you Ralph! I hope you “kill” it! Let’s take a look back at why we fell in love with Ralph..
