Scroll down for movie list.

James Belushi was born June 15, 1954 in Chicago. The 3rd of four children, he grew up in Wheaton, Illinois. A high school teacher, impressed by Jim's improvisational skills while giving speeches, convinced Jim to to be in a school play. After that he joined the school's drama club. Today if asked why he got involved in acting, he will jokingly say "Because of girls. In the drama club, there were about 20 girls and six guys. And the same thing with choir....more girls!". He attended the College of Dupage and Southern Illinois university where he graduated with a degree in Speech and Theater Arts.

In 1977, Jim joined Chicago's Second City improv troupe for three years. In 1979, Garry Marshall saw Jim performing for 2nd City and arranged for him to come to Hollywood and co-star in the TV Pilot "Who's Watching the Kids" (1978) for Paramount, and then for a role in the television show "Working Stiffs" (1979) (co-starring Michael Keaton). Later, in 1983, he joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" (1975) for 2 years. Jim came to national attention through his role in the film _About Last Night (1986)_ , playing the role he originated in the Chicago Apollo Theatre's production of David Mamet's Obie-awardwinning play "Sexual Perversity in Chicago". He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife Jennifer, and their daughter, Jamison and a son, Robert, from Belushi's first marriage.
