Life Story of Jim Belushi

James Adam Belushi was born June 15, 1954, in Chicago, to Agnes Demetri (Samaras) and Adam Anastos Belushi, a restaurant owner. His father was an Albanian immigrant, from Qytezë, and his mother was also of Albanian descent. The third of four children - his brother was comedian John Belushi - he grew up in Wheaton, Illinois. A high school teacher, impressed by his improvisational skills while giving speeches, convinced him 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, he joined Chicago's Second City improv troupe and remained for three years. In 1979, Garry Marshall saw Jim performing for Second 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 series Working Stiffs (1979) (co-starring Michael Keaton). Later, in 1983, he...

Jim Belushi, Paul Empson, and Mark Lee in Sahara - Wüste des Todes (1995)

Filed a $4-million lawsuit against neighbor Julie Newmar in 2004. He accused her of using harassment and defamation to force him from the Brentwood, California, street they share. A newspaper article quoted a resident not involved with the dispute as saying "She's weird" and "He's a bully." In January 2006 the two announced they had settled their differences out-of-court, and later that year Newmar guest-starred on an episode of According to Jim (2001) that poked fun at their feud by having Newmar play a neighbor who annoys Belushi's character.
