Variety announced today that Emile Hirsch has been cast as the late John Belushi in an upcoming biopic based on the book Belushi by Judith Belushi Pisano and Tanner Colby.

While at first, it may seem like an odd casting choice, when you see the two side by side there’s definitely a resemblance, and as a fan of both actors, I’m anxious to see how this turns out.  Shooting is set to begin this Spring, so we’ll have more as it develops.
