I was just wondering whatever's happened to the Karate Kid Ralph Macchio. Back in the 80s, that movie was one of my favorites. Karate Kid II was ok, but Karate Kid III was a huge disappointment.
|Ralph back then...|
After that, I've not seen Ralph Macchio in any other movies. I was rather surprised to learn that the guy can actually dance! Who would'a thought...
Anyway here's the article I read from www.contactmusic.com:
'Karate Kid' star Ralph Macchio was awarded the most points in the first episode of 'Dancing With the Stars.'
Ralph Macchio is in the lead on 'Dancing with the Stars'.
The 'Karate Kid' actor and his partner Karina Smirnoff finished the first show with a total of 24 points, putting him ahead of other contestants Kirstie Alley, Petra Nemkova and Kendra Wilkinson.
Judge Bruno Tonioli told the former child star that he had "great showmanship" but needed to watch his "weird" hand.
