We’re delighted to welcome special guest Adina Verson (Only Murders in the Building) to chat about who almost starred in the 80s comedy Three Amigos! Who did Steve Martin have in mind when writing the roles of Dusty and Ned? Who did Steven Spielberg want for the Amigos when he considered directing? And why didn’t they make that talking turtle an honorary Amigo? Also – Adina takes us behind the scenes of what it was like working with Steve Martin and Martin Short, and we pitch the Martin Short action franchise you never knew you needed but can’t possibly live without!


Three Amigos stars Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Patrice Martinez, Alfonso Arau, Tony Plana, Phil Hartman, Jon Lovitz, and Joe Mantegna; directed by John Landis
