In 1975 Aykroyd was chosen to be part of the original cast of Saturday Night Live which became a tremendous success. Off of a skit done by himself on Saturday Night Live, Aykroyd starred in the highly popular The Blues Brothers (1980) which established him as a movie star. He was also in the highly successful comedies Trading Places (1983) and Ghostbusters (1984). He also starred in the Academy Award Winning Driving Miss Daisy (1989).
