You can’t talk about The Karate Kid – new or old — without mentioning Ralph Macchio. Or Pat Morita, for that matter. Without him, there would have been no 80s classic underdog story for Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan to rehash. And all the while, I’m sure many of you have wondered what Macchio has been up to. The folks at Funny or Die have the answer: Ralph is trying to become Hollywood’s next bad boy.
In the following short we see Macchio take on the task of going from super nice guy to troublemaker, or something like that. It’s a very funny little short that features appearances by Kevin Connolly (Entrourage) and Molly Ringwald (Everything from the 80s). It’s one of those classic Hollywood self discovery stories you hear about every day. The ones that end with the hero snorting baking soda.
