Dan Aykroyd to Guest Star on THE DEFENDERS

Dan Aykroyd

Dan Aykroyd will guest star on his Blues Brothers touring partner Jim Belushi’s legal drama THE DEFENDERS. Aykroyd is set to play the role of a judge who comes to defense attorney Nick Morelli (Belushi) in need of help. He is expected to appear in two episodes airing early next year.

The Defenders follows Morelli and Pete Kaczmarek (Jerry O’Connell), two colorful Las Vegas defense attorneys who go all-in when it comes to representing their clients and are the local go-to guys who are still looking to hit their own jackpot.

Currently, Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi tour together in The Blues Brothers Band as “Elwood” and “Brother Zee,” respectively. Aykroyd can also be heard in theaters later this month as the voice of Yogi Bear in the same-titled film.

The Defenders airs on CBS Wednesdays at 10pm eastern/9pm central.
