  1. Michael Dudikoff, American Ninja, 1984.  Seen but not hired…  The taekwondo black belt was too young, said producer Menahame Golan. Although he was no martial artist, Dudikoff perfectly matched Golan’s identikit.  He looked like James Dean, didn’t talk much and had a chip on his shoulder.
  2. David Bradley, American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt, 1988.    Suddenly, he was old enough. And knew his own mind. He had no wish to  take over Bradley’s usual role – he wanted the top spot, when Michael Dudikoff bowed out. Which is one reason why Dudikoff quickly returned for American Ninja 4: The Annihilation, 1990.
