Life Story of Ralph Macchio

Ralph George Macchio was born on November 4, 1961 in Huntington, Long Island, New York.

Hinton novel about troubled youth.

In 1984, Macchio scored the lead role in The Karate Kid (1984) directed by Rocky (1976) director John G. Avildsen. The film was a phenomenal success, being highly popular with adults and children alike. The movie spawned two equally popular sequels The Karate Kid Part II (1986) and The Karate Kid Part III (1989), both again starring Macchio and Pat Morita, and both directed by Avildsen.

Macchio also starred in the blues road movie Crossroads (1986), featured alongside Joe Pesci in My Cousin Vinny (1992) and, looking to toughen up his image, Macchio played a hit man in A Good Night to Die (2003).

When Joel Siegel first did a review for The Karate Kid (1984), he pronounced his name "MA-Key-O" instead of "Ma-chee-o". The latter pronunciation was the way Ralph Macchio pronounced his name, but the former is the proper Italian pronunciation. Siegel was called in at 4:00am the day of his review's airing to correct the pronunciation. He later expressed annoyance at being called in at 4:00am in the morning because Macchio "didn't know how to pronounce his own name."

C. Thomas Howell and Ralph Macchio in Die Outsider - Rebellen ohne Grund (1983)

Some moviegoers who sat through the end credits for the Marvel comics features Thor and The Avengers noticed a "thank you" credit for a Ralph Macchio. However, this was not meant for the Karate Kid actor, but rather for a man with the same name who was a Marvel writer during the 1980s.

On December 23rd, 2016, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, at the game between the Buffalo Sabres and the New York Islanders, the New York Islanders (Macchio's beloved hockey team) honored the actor with "Ralph Macchio Bobblehead Night", which gave the first 10,000 fans arriving to the game a bobblehead figurine of Macchio dressed in a New York Islanders uniform in the pose of a "crane kick" (besides the "bobblehead" the raised leg was also built to bobble (be flexible). His daughter Julia sang the national anthem before the game.
