Gary Busey is a graduate of Nathan Hale High School in Tulsa who played drums for Leon Russell and Willie Nelson before heading to Hollywood. In 1978, he landed the role of Buddy Holly, playing guitar and singing all of the vocals. The performance earned Busey a Best Actor Oscar nomination and put him at the top of every casting list. Great turns in Hollywood hits like Lethal Weapon, Point Break, The Firm, and Under Siege solidified his place as an enduring actor.

Busey was quick to recognize the new celebrity culture and effective at developing a unique public persona. He starred in his own Comedy Central Show I’m with Busey.  He appeared on Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, and twice on Celebrity Apprentice.

And, he parodied himself on The Simpsons, Two and Half Men, Scrubs, American Dad! and several episodes of HBO’s Entourage.

The exposure has definitely paid off. As an actor, Busey has appeared in more than 160 film and television roles. Sixty of those roles have taken place since 2003, when he first started in reality television. At 72, Busey is busier and more widely recognized than all but a handful of his acting contemporaries.
