Emile Hirsch is going from playing Clyde Barrow to still another icon whose death scene we'll be morbidly awaiting the whole time. He's reportedly been cast in the lead in the long-gestating, still-untitled John Belushi biopic being directed by The Promotion's Steve Conrad. Conrad also wrote the script, which is based on the book Belushi and follows the comedian from his rise as Saturday Night Live's premier samurai to his 1982 death at just 33. John Belushi's old friend and collaborator Dan Aykroyd is executive producing. Jim Belushi is reclining in the dusty offices of According to Jim and wondering if anyone's going to play him.
