Emile Hirsch Set To Channel John Belushi in Upcoming Biopic

Jim BelushiEmile Hirsch is set to play one half of America’s iconic Blues Brother, the late & great character actor John Belushi, in a biopic based on the troubled comedians life who passed away at the age of 33 in 1982. The independent feature is slated with screenwriter Steve Conrad to jump behind the lens and direct the film based upon the biography “Belushi.” I have to say, I’ve been a fan of Emile because of his chameleon like ability, he transforms for his role choices, if you doubt his skills check out Sean Penn’s “Into the Wild”and his performance in ‘Milk.’  This is a project we’ll keep you updated on when further details leak.
