Okay, so this isn’t really film news, but I have a lot of love for both of these guys. Aykroyd has Ghostbusters, Trading Places, Blues Brothers, Grosse Pointe Blank and Dragnet on his CV, with Jim Belushi offering up Red Heat, The Man With One Red Shoe and K-9 (okay, not quite as impressive a resumé, but hey).

They have shared credits before, with Belushi appearing in Trading Places, but now Aykroyd is going to guest on Belushi’s current CBS TV series, The Defenders. In the show, Belushi and Jerry O’Connell play fast-talking Vegas Attorneys and Aykroyd will guest for a couple of episodes as a judge who tangles with Belushi’s Nick Morelli.

Although Belushi has been mostly working in TV for while now, he does have film work coming up, with Dorothy of Oz and The Secret Lives of Dorks both now in post-production and of course Aykroyd is trying to get Ghostbusters 3 going. We’ll let you know how these various productions develop as we hear more.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
