Originally, Steve Martin
was cast to play Barney Coopersmith, with Arnold Schwarzenegger
playing the role of Vinnie Antonelli. However, Schwarzenegger was soon thereafter offered the role of Det. John Kimble in Kindergarten Cop
(1990), and left the production. Failing to find another suitable "Vinnie" for Martin's Coopersmith, Martin offered to take on the role of Vinnie himself. Producers agreed, and then cast Rick Moranis
as Coopersmith, who had originally been considered for the role, but was unavailable until then. See more

Would you care to bet on that?
I never bet when I'm sure and right.
Presumably you haven't done a lot of betting considering you've only been wrong once in your life.
