Dante Basco Can’t Escape The Legacy of Rufio. Bangarang! [VIDEO]


I’m sure that actor Dante Basco has learned by now that once you play a fan favorite like Hook‘s Rufio, it’s hard to shake the role, and I can only assume this is the trajectory of every audition Basco attends, including his Avatar: The Last Airbender audition, down to the gleeful humming. Really, though, the takeaway here is that YouTube comedians The Younger Statesmen know what the internet wants, and that at least one of Basco’s auditions, way back in 1990, was actually like this.

    Grown-up Dante Basco is hot. Who knew?

    I’m not surprised. I had such a crush on Rufio as a kid.

    It’s a rare thing that I find something funny enough to post it to Facebook. Between Hook, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Take the Lead (yes, that Antonio Banderas movie), Dante Basco is the man.

    I wonder how often he accidentally gets called “Donnie Brasco”?
