ign.com The Karate Kid star Ralph Macchio, who now gets to continue playing the role of Daniel LaRusso in Netflix's Karate Kid continuation Cobra Kai, recently revealed that a few famous folks auditioned for the role of Daniel back in the early '80s - including a young Robert Downey Jr. Now, at this point, Macchio wasn't exactly in total danger of losing the LaRusso role as he'd already been cast, largely thanks to his performance in Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 adaptation of The Outsiders, but according to Macchio, as he recounted the tale to Jimmy Fallon, he wasn't quite a household name so the studio wanted to audition other up-and-coming actors of the era just to play things safe. "I was found early," Macchio said.
