From the source:

From Wikipedia:
Twenty years after being cleared in the death of his mistress, Judge Ro┼żat "Rusty" Sabich is charged with the murder of his wife Barbara.

Bill Pullman plays Sabich, now a judge and once again romantically involved with a colleague and on trial for murder: This time he is accused of killing his wife, Barbara. His accuser is his old nemesis Tommy Molto, while his longtime friend and lawyer, Sandy Stern, is in charge of the defense.

Unlike the case of Peter Ustinov's Hercule Poirot, there is no connection to Sabich's doppelganger in the Cineverse. That Judge Sabich was played by Harrison Ford and so was a different man.  However, the events of "Presumed Innocent" still played out, unseen, in Toobworld.  But if we could see what happened, we'd see Bill Pullman and Marcia Gay Harden rather than Ford and Bonnie Bedelia.  And that would apply to the supporting players as well - Joe Grifasi/Richard Schiff, Raul Julia/Alfred Molina, etc.

I see no objection to Greta Scacci playing the same role in both realities.  At least, I'm certainly not going to object!

BCnU!
