The Jerk, Too is a 1984 American made-for-television comedy film starring Mark Blankfield as title character Navin Johnson, in a reworked version of the 1979 Steve Martin film The Jerk. While Martin is credited as "executive producer" of the film, he did not write or appear in the film.
Navin Johnson sets out to attend the wedding of Marie, his pen pal in California, but runs into a gang of hobos, led by a schemer named Diesel. Diesel discovers Navin's skill at playing poker and takes Navin to Las Vegas where they win enough to travel to Los Angeles in style.
