Happy birthday, Jim Belushi: Do you know your Litgo from your Ridzik?



Jim_belushi_night Jim Belushi was a god in the '80s. Great roles, great laughs, one good movie after another ... well, up until 1989 when he cranked out K-9 and Homer & Eddie. (All is forgiven though after Salvador and About Last Night.)

But you know the best part about Belushi, who turns 55 years old today? His character names. Leave it to saps like Keanu Reeves to have lame characters named "Johnny Utah." Belushi's names come straight out of the phone book in Chicago, where he grew up. (For crying out loud, he was Dr. Rock in one flick!)

See if you can match the character names with the movie. All these are from movies between 1986 and 1991:

1. Art Ridzik
2. Bill Dancer
3. Patrick Martin
4. Rick Latimer
5. Nick Pirandello
6. Doctor Rock
7. Bernie Litgo
8. Jimmy Dworski
9. Larry Joseph Burrows
10. Salvatore Buonarte

a. Salvador
b. About Last Night
c. Taking Care of Business
d. Red Heat
e. The Principal
f. Real Men
g. Only the Lonely
h. Mr. Destiny
i. Little Shop of Horrors
j. Curly Sue
