Did You Know?
[on Blues Brothers 2000
(1998)] Basically they gave us the budget to make the film. We got paid zero. I wanted Jim Belushi
to play the part Joe Morton
did, but he was doing a TV show and couldn't do it. But Morton did a great job and John Goodman
did a good job. I think it's a good companion piece to the first film.
Though he has made numerous appearances on Saturday Night Live
(1975) since leaving the show in 1979, he did not actually host it until the 2002-2003 season finale.
Often plays the straight man of a comedy duo
