Should Bobby Moynihan play John Belushi in a biopic?

Here's an author's take...

The big movie news today is that "The Hangover" director Todd Phillips is developing a biopic chronicling the too-short life of comedian and actor John Belushi. The portly "Saturday Night Live" vet passed away in 1982, at the age of 33, the victim of a drug overdose. In spite of his abbreviated career, Belushi held starring roles in what many consider to be two of the greatest comedies in the history of film: "Blues Brothers" and "Animal House."

Bobby Moynihan
If there's any name on this list that you're confused about, it's Bobby Moynihan. Who is this guy? He's a current cast member on "Saturday Night Live" who bears no small resemblance to Belushi. He's got virtually no big screen experience and no starring roles. To go from contributing to a weekly sketch comedy show to leading a blockbuster biopic... that's a hard one to swallow. He's hard not to at least consider though, given his resemblance to the subject.

What about Jim Belushi? Would that be too difficult for John's brother to do it?
