You mean Data and Short Round are the same kid - Johnny Ke Quan - right?

Ernie Reyes, Jr. is the kid in RED SONJA - who is also the dude that The Rock fights in THE RUNDOWN, where he's thrown all over the place in the trees and gets his ass beat.
He's also a classic figure from the always-classic THE LAST DRAGON.
And I loved watching the TV show "Sidekicks" when I was young, because I started taekwan do at that age and loved to watch Ernie be a badass.

I also recall an interview where Arnie said he did this movie "as a favor to a friend" and he didn't really do it except to pay a debt to said friend. Whoever it was.
