Stay gold, Johnny boy!

That's all Ralph Macchio ever wanted -- to continue along his career path happily, spending his free time cuddling his wife and being kind to strangers. He never had a need for the child star's usual fall into badness. (Nevermind that he was in his twenties when he played both Johnny and Daniel and became a huge star.) No monitoring devices, sex tapes, or drug binges plagued his days. least, not until the intervention, when his loved ones sat him down and tried to drill it into his head that nice guys finish last. They chastised him for being faithful, and nice, and Hollywood poison. To get ahead, they said, he had to finally become the bad boy, even if he is pushing 50 and it seems too late.
