This was the episode that was supposed to star Tony Clifton as Louie's brother. They changed actors midway through. It was specifically written for Tony (who is currently on tour)

They changed actors midway though. Tony Clifton had his own paychecks, his own contract, even though he wss being played by Andy. "Clifton" showed up with two prostitutes, one on each knee. He was fired, When he was fired, he would not leave, he had to be thrown out. That's why they changed actors in the middle.

Of course, this did not effect Andy's contract as Latka.
