Why 3 Ninjas Recast Rocky When It Came Time For A Sequel
The primary thing one must know about Jon Turteltaub's 1992 film "3 Ninjas" is that it contains one use of "Pysche!," one use of "Not!," and one use of "Face!" Additional details are but window dressing.

In "3 Ninjas," the Douglas brothers — 12-year-old Rocky (Michael Treanor), 11-year-old Colt (Max Elliott Slade), and 8-year-old Tum-Tum (Chad Power) — are being trained in deadly martial arts by their affable grandfather Mori (the venerable Victor Wong).

3 Ninjas Series: 10 Best Fight Scenes, Ranked

The '3 Ninjas': Where Are They Now?

When we last checked in with the peculiarly-named trio of Rocky, Colt and Tum-Tum, known to most as the "3 Ninjas," they were busy saving some Native Americans from a company dumping toxic waste in the third installment of the classic "3 Ninjas" movies, "3 Ninjas Knuckle Up." (If you believe the film's Wikipedia page, they not only saved the Native Americans, they also saved "the rest of society." Great job, guys.) That was way back in 1995, which is (quick math, uses fingers) a solid 18 years ago.

The three actors who played the transcendent roles — Michael Treanor as Rocky, Max Elliott Slade as Colt, and Chad Power as Tum Tum — have largely stayed out of the spotlight since the movies debuted.

Parenthood: NBC Wants a Second Series Based on the Movie -- Will This One Work?

Back in 1989, Ron Howard directed Parenthood, a charming family movie about the extended Buckman clan and the trials and tribulations of raising children. The light-hearted film was a box office success and stars a diverse cast including Steve Martin, Tom Hulce, Rick Moranis, Martha Plimpton, Keanu Reeves, Jason Robards, Mary Steenburgen, Dianne Wiest, Martha Plimpton, and Joaquin Phoenix.

NBC decided to try making a Parenthood TV show. The plot was very similar and three actors reprised their suppting roles; Ivyann Schwan, Zachary La Voy, and Max Elliott Slade. The series stars Ed Begley, Jr., Maryedith Burrell, Ken Ober, William Windom, and Jayne Atkinson. Curiously, many of the young and virtually unknown castmembers have gone on to a great amount of success over the years -- David Arquette, Thora Birch, and some guy named Leonardo DiCaprio. Other castmembers include Mary Jackson, Sheila MacRae, Bess Meyer, Susan Norman.
