          Being Gary Busey

          October 17, 2018

          PLAYING Being Gary Busey
          Actor Gary Busey has appeared in hundreds of movies and was nominated for an Academy Award for playing Buddy Holly in “The Buddy Holly Story.” But as his star continued to rise, so did his dangerous behavior.

          He made headlines for multiple arrests and a near-fatal motorcycle accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, leaving him known more for his off-camera antics than his blockbuster films. The actor is once again in the news with his new autobiography, Buseyisms: Gary Busey’s Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, where he shares his ups and downs of almost 50 years in Hollywood and surviving a drug overdose. In his book, Busey talks about how a man who called himself the “Devil” showed up at his door with a box and that led to his addiction. Find out what was in that little blue box. Plus, meet Busey’s doctor and find out what he says he discovered when he did a SPECT scan of the famous actor’s brain. Can this discovery explain Busey’s publicized erratic behavior?
