CHICAGO (AP) -- Another member of the Belushi family is taking up the acting business.

Rob Belushi is the 32-year-old son of Jim Belushi and nephew of the late John Belushi. He has appeared in made-for-TV movies and graced the stand-up stage. Now he's starring on the Spike TV reality program "The Joe Schmo Show," which airs Tuesday nights.

Rob Belushi grew up in Chicago and moved to Los Angeles to attend high school. He earned the TV role after years of studying improv, comedy and drama at Chicago acting schools. He has also guest starred on shows starring his father, such as "According to Jim" and "The Defenders."

Jim Belushi says the best professional advice he's given his son is "do what's right in front of you" and "stay in the moment."
