Hilary Swank discusses the possibility of revamping “The Karate Kid” “no one called me,” a character from “Cobra Kai,” says…

Hilary Swank has not yet received a call from Cobra Kai and is continuing to wait for it.

After playing the role of Julie Pierce in the 1994 film The Next Karate Kid, Swank, now 48 years old, has been bombarded with questions from fans about whether or not she would ever feature in the karate series on Netflix.

On Wednesday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Swank explained to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that she is not a member of the Cobra Kai and that no one has requested her to join the organization. “I get a lot of questions about it, but the number one question I get is whether or not I’m going to be on it.”

After being questioned by Seacrest, 47, whether she was interested in reprising her role as Julie, the Academy Award winner responded by saying that the decision now rests with Netflix.

“No one has bothered to call me!” She stated that and then she followed up her statement by saying, “but that’s so funny, isn’t it, it’s the one thing I am asked about the most, and no one’s contacted me?”

Seacrest said, “After today, Hilary Swank, I can assure you that’s going to change,” and he meant it.

The fifth season of Cobra Kai debuted on Netflix in September of this year. In addition to Ralph Macchio’s performance as Daniel LaRusso and William Zabka’s portrayal of Johnny Lawrence, a number of actors from the original Karate Kid movie have reprised their roles in the series. These actors include Martin Kove as John Kreese, Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver, Elisabeth Shue as Ali (“with an I Mills Schwarber, Yuji Okumoto as Chozen Toguchi, and Sean Kanan as Mike Barnes,

Swank did not completely rule out the possibility of returning to Cobra Kai, but it seems likely that she has more significant ideas in the works. The Alaska Daily star made the announcement that she is expecting twins on Wednesday morning’s episode of Good Morning America. These little ones will be Swank’s first offspring.

Swank said, “This is something that I’ve been wanting for a very long time, and my next thing is going to be that I’m going to be a parent.” “Not only of one but of two as well. I refuse to accept it as true.”
