And Almost Starring

Episode 45 - My Cousin Vinny

April 6, 2021

On our first episode of Oscars Month, we’re breaking down who almost starred in the courtroom comedy My Cousin Vinny and whether anyone else could have compared to Marisa Tomei’s absolutely delightful Academy Award-winning turn! Which stand-up comic almost played Vinny? Which comedy legend could have played the Judge? And how good is Ralph Macchio’s titular line reading? Also – Amy Jo and Jeff are delighted to discover the continuing adventures of Vinny Gambini in both book and song!


My Cousin Vinny stars Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph Macchio, Mitchell Whitfield, Fred Gwynne, Lane Smith, Bruce McGill, and Austin Pendleton; directed by Jonathan Lynn
