On March 5, 1982, comic great John Belushi died at 33 of an overdose, and the late star's friend and colleague, Dan Aykroyd, is opening up about what could've been.
Had Belushi lived, Aykroyd tells "Showbiz Tonight" in an exclusive interview, “He would be directing plays and musicals. He would be one of the premier directors on Broadway."
The actor continues, "that would have been his destiny, because he was so intelligent and so well referenced there. He was more of an academic than the 'Bluto' image would have you believe.”
The Grammys went to great efforts to celebrate the life and acknowledge the passing of Whitney Houston, but don’t expect quite the same from the Academy Awards.
At the height of her career, Houston was a bona fide movie star, but Oscar show producers say they're not planning any special tribute to her beyond a mention in the traditional “In Memoriam” piece.
That segment will last about four minutes and include dozens of industry figures who died in the past year (including notables who worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes).
