Jimmy Belushi was attending Chicago school, while the name of his elder brother John Belush was known by every man in all America. In the 70s his brother was considered as the number one comedian in Hollywood. Young brother of course was proud of his brother, but all walls in his parents' room were covered with newspaper articles about their older son. And after dinner when the younger Belushi asked, do they want a picture or something related to him also to hand on their wall? John, his brother said "What? You want us to hang on the wall your arrests orders?” James Belushi thought of himself as an ugly and fat Shorty that is not capable to get attention of anyone, and did everything to get that attention from others: robberies, fighting, stealing a car, were his way of saying “It’s me”. That was a sad childhood that he had. One night James tore the wall that was dedicated to John, and all his posters to shreds. He was jealous of his brother. Classes in the choir and the drama circle were not free for Jimmy. Graduating the school, he already had a plan that would make him an actor as good as his brother. Soon he gets the leading role and starts his career as an actor. But his life soon will change when the tragedy occurred. During the day performance, James received a sad note: "Today your brother John died. The cause that leads to death was an overdose of heroin in combination with a lot of alcohol." James has darkened in the eyes! Until that moment he had no idea that John is so dear to him. This factor pushed him even harder to bond his life with acting and become even greater than his brother.
