Hollywood legend and star of the Blues Brothers, Dan Aykroyd has shown interest in the Old Joliet Prison. Joliet Historical Museum Executive director Greg Peerbolte had a chance to meet Aykroyd in Chicago last week due to the Museum’s association with Aykroyd’s vodka Crystal Head. In speaking with Aykroyd, Peerbolte says the actor was curious about the old prison where “The Blues Bothers” movie was filmed.
Peerbolte is hoping that Aykroyd could narrate a prison tour or even be on hand for a 40th anniversary Blues Brothers Reunion. Stay tuned.
