To call Jim Belushi a "jack of all trades" in the entertainment field is not far off the mark. Mirroring his late older brother John's career, albeit without the self-destructive nature, Jim Belushi has become a household name in feature films, television, and music. The acting bug caught up with Jim in high school, and from there he went on to earn a degree in speech and theater arts. He joined the Second City comedy troupe in Chicago in 1977 and caught a big break in 1980 when he got a gig co-starring with Michael Keaton on the TV show Working Stiffs. Unfortunately, the show was not a hit and was canceled, but the big break was right around the corner. In 1983, Belushi was picked to be a part of the cast of Saturday Night Live, the very show on which his brother had made a name for himself. All irony aside, Jim was able to turn two years on SNL into a long-term and quite successful film and television career. Over the course of the next ten years, Belushi starred in such films as The Principal, K-9, and Gang Related, exhibiting a talent for both comedic and dramatic roles. In 2002, Jim came to even bigger attention when his ABC sitcom According to Jim became a hit.
