‚Äč

Actress Marisa Tomei stopped by this morning's TODAY to chat about her new role on Broadway in The Realistic Joneses and being associated with her role in 'My Cousin Vinnie' more than 20 years later.

"It's a very funny story, there are a lot of laughs throughout, it's a broad comedy," said the Oscar winning actress of her new play, "But it also works thematically about illness, and the fact that both The Neighbors names are Joneses, it plays on the theme of coveting what your neighbors have, and do you really want everything that they have? Sometimes what they have is not so hot!"

Check out the appearance below!

Will Eno's new play The Realistic Joneses officially opened on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at the Lyceum Theatre (149 W 45th Street).

The Realistic Joneses stars Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner; Academy Award and Tony Award-nominee Toni Collette("Hostages," "United States of Tara," The Sixth Sense, The Wild Party), Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Michael C.
