Jim Belushi — Sorry, Emile Hirsch … You’re No John Belushi

Exclusive 111713_jim_belushi_launchEmile Hirsch is a crappy choice to play John Belushi in the recently announced biopic — at least according to Belushi”s brother … who gave us his fully biased opinion on who should get the gig.

Jim Belushi was at LAX when he told us he likes Emile as an actor — just not as an actor playing the late great Belushi … and instead thought Robert Belushi should play him.

Of course, RB is Jim”s son … so it”s hardly an objective choice on his part — but he does offer a couple of good reasons why 33-year-old Robert could do it, including the whole blood line thing.

Sure, Emile”s an A-lister, but Robert is John”s nephew — so we gotta ask …
