Noriyuki "Pat" Morita 1932-2005
He was one of the few, make that one of maybe two, Asian actors on television in the 70s. But he is best known for playing Mr. Miyagi. I think "Wax on, Wax off," is one of the movie catch phrases that will endure. Believe it or not, in 1994, he played opposite Academy Award winner Hilary Swank in The Next Karate Kid.
