Dante Basco Discusses Becoming Rufio for Hook, the Character's Legacy, and So Much More [io9] We talked to Basco about how he got the role, the food fight, the amazing costume, Rufio’s legacy and so much more.
“I think it’s one of those things that, as you grow up, you’re able to appreciate aspects of your career and celebrate them with fans out there and understand and engage on social media. Like it’s nostalgic for me too so it’s kind of fun to capsulize a part of your life which, to me, was 15. Clearly, it means a lot to so many people and it’s something I’m proud of too, work-wise. Look, everyone who ever comes to Hollywood, you hope to do something that people will remember you for. We work on so many things and I continue to work today, not just as an actor but as a writer and a producer. But [certain roles] really kind of mean things to people. [Hook] has become, for a certain generation, a part of the vernacular.”
