Movie/TV Trivia

Blues Brothers had a specific budget set aside for cocaine

Everyone knows that John Belushi was a troubled man. Belushi’s crippling drug addiction severely harmed his comedy career and the performer was booted off the set of Saturday Night Live more than a few times for his behaviour.

But it turns out that his chronic addiction to cocaine probably wasn’t helped by the fact that the Blues Brothers production crew actually set aside a specific amount of money to pay for the white stuff.

Dan Aykroyd was a close friend of Belushi’s and co-starred with him in the hit film. He once explained in an interview: “We had a budget in the movie for cocaine for night shoots. Everyone did it, including me. Never to excess, and not ever to where I wanted to buy it or have it. [But] John, he just loved what it did. It sort of brought him alive at night—that superpower feeling where you start to talk and converse and figure you can solve all the world’s problems.”

Whilst director John Landis tried to keep his star comedian away from drugs, there were plenty of enablers on set who were more than happy to keep dishing out the white lines.
