8. John Belushi (1975-1979)
An original member of the SNL cast, John Belushi was another of the show's comics who became a legend after a short stint at the GE Building (or 30 Rockefeller, for which Tina Fey's award-wining show was named).
Before Belushi sadly died of a drug OD at age 33, he became an icon to hard partiers everywhere in Animal House, but not before making waves as the notably un-PC, yet much-loved Samurai Futaba, Olympia "Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger" Diner owner Pete, and Blues Brother Jake Blues, who still resonates with younger viewers today thanks to his immortalization in film. R.I.P., John.
