Rufio Returns! Dante Basco Recreates His Climactic Hook Battle



Nowadays, “Rufio” sounds like the name of a joke superhero who got his powers from a radioactive date-rape drug, but back in the day, he was the most badass Lost Boy in Neverland – admittedly a pretty easy task when the only person you have to look more badass than is Robin Williams in a Peter Pan costume.

Actor Dante Basco is older now, but Rufio remains his best-known role. So instead of fighting it, he’s fighting Captain Hook…again. And on the cheap. Bangerang!

If you never saw Hook…first of all, it won’t hurt you to keep it that way. But you might want to see the side-by-side comparison.
