An original cast member of Saturday Night Live when it premiered in 1975, John Belushi became a comedy superstar thanks to his roles in films like National Lampoon’s Animal House and The Blues Brothers. Belushi was killed by an overdose after being injected with a mixture of heroin and cocaine known as a “speedball.” He was just 33 when he died.
