    Default John Belushi biopic casts lead....

    http://www.avclub.com/articles/emile...elushi,104834/

    From The AV Club:
    Concluding years of being able to use the question of their possible casting as John Belushi as a euphemistic way of calling actors fat, Emile Hirsch has finally landed the role in Steve Conrad’s upcoming Belushi biopic. Hirsch was one of the names most recently said to be in the running, alongside Workaholics’ Adam Devine and even Joaquin Phoenix, but Hirsch eventually won out, taking on the role of the late comedian in a film that will cover the apex of his fame. Having previously lost 40 pounds to star in Into The Wild, as The Wrap notes, Hirsch will now “have to gain weight for the part” of Belushi (meaning he might soon be getting a very concerned email from Tom Hanks). But he could probably do that by just rehearsing Belushi’s old Elizabeth Taylor sketch over and over.

    I always thought they'd hire Artie Lange to play Belushi

    Kind of a surprising choice. Hirsch is a decent actor (Into the Wild). I'm having a hard time seeing the connection, however. But I'm not going to question the casting choice or make any judgements until after I see the finished product.

    I always figured it would be Jack Black

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I was thinking...what an odd choice.

    Now that I see a side by side facial comparison....He just might pull it off. Lots of similarities especially the nose.

    Jack Black or (especially) Artie would have been good choice 10 years ago, but both are now in their mid 40's. Belushi Died at 33. Artie in particular is starting to age quickly.
