The New York Comic Con announcements are kicking in to high gear, and this next guest announcement has us running to our nearest dojo. The con has announced that Karate Kid legend Ralph Macchio will attend the show. He is set to appear on Thursday and Friday. He will be around to meet fans for autographs ($80) and photo ops ($90), which are available for purchase here.
Though Macchio has appeared in a number of film and television projects through his career, he is best known for playing Daniel LaRusso in the original Karate Kid trilogy. Currently, he reprised his role as Daniel for the YouTube-turned-Netflix original series Cobra Kai, which recently premiered its fifth season. He has also appeared in My Cousin Vinny, Ugly Betty, The Deuce, and many more. His memoir, Waxing On: The Karate Kid and Me, is set to release on October 18. It is available for pre-order here.
Additional guests include Oscar Isaac, cast from Netflix’s Shadow and Bone, cast from Smallville, Brendan Fraser, Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Cassandra Peterson, and many more.
New York Comic Con takes place from October 6-9 at the Javits Center. Select single day tickets are still available. For more information, visit the website.
