I love hearing about the “happy” side of acting for kids – child stars and former child stars included. Ralph Macchio is today’s case in point. While I don’t believe that his career path has been rose-laden, I do know that former child star Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid, Outsiders) is continuing to successfully forge his path as an actor at age 47.
After showing the world his abilities as a young adult in the popular comedy, “My Cousin Vinny,” the amiable actor starred in several under-the-radar productions until he hit again with an appearance on HBO’s “Entourage.” Most recently Macchio has been cast on the highly-rated television show, “Ugly Betty,” and has been so well-received that he’ll be sticking around for several more episodes. Congratulations Ralph! Keep the happy endings coming.
OMG, last week I think it was, I saw an episode of Ugly Betty and I kept thinking who is that guys, he looks so familiar. Then my husband came in wondering what I was watching. I told him the actor looked familiar and he mentioned Ralph Macchio and I said, no way, you know he should be in his late forties and he doesn’t look like that. But it bothered me because I could not figure it out. I didn’t bother to look it up or anything. But now you confirmed it for me. wow, he looks great. That guy never ages!!
