When Rob Belushi played Bobby Jr. in “The Birthday Boy” (1986), he was making his professional acting debut as a young actor. Rob was interested in working behind the scenes, but he also had other plans.
He didn’t discover his love for acting until he was a college student. Rob chose to pursue acting when a buddy suggested he take on a small role in a play. Oddly enough, he enjoyed it and decided to continue.
Despite having connections in the field, Rob struggled to make it as an actor and even worked at Starbucks to make ends meet. He also played in a television sitcom “According to Jim,” which aired from 2002 to 2009, this gave Rob his big break. Even while this part was an excellent stepping stone into popular acting, it wasn’t until 2009 that his career began to soar.
He appeared in three popular films from that year: “Legally Blonde,” “Sorority Row,” and “RiffRaff.” His performance as “Otis Jay” in “RiffRaff” was so masterfully performed that it earned him the Best Actor in a Supporting Role award from the 2007 Tenerife International Film Festival. After appearing in “Valentine’s Day” in 2010, he went on to participate in “The Defenders” in 2011, “How I Met Your Mother” in 2013–2014, “One Small Hitch” in 2013, “Devil’s Due” in 2014, “The Mentalist” (2015), “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (2014), “Dylan” (2018), and “Witness Infection” (2021) are some examples.
The actor pleasantly surprised his fans in 2020 by taking up the role of host of “Get a Clue” on The Game Show Network.
On June 29, 2014, husband Rob Belushi tied the knot with longtime sweetheart Chelsea Wernsman, and the two have been together ever since. In Los Angeles, Chelsea is a hairstylist.
