          Actor Gary Busey has made well over 100 films during his five decades in Hollywood. The 74-year-old star, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of the title character in “The Buddy Holly Story” (1978), says of playing the iconic musician, “My award was being chosen to play Buddy Holly.”

          In the years following his Oscar nomination Busey, who went on to make blockbusters such as “Lethal Weapon,” “Point Break,” and “Under Siege,” says he also suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a near-fatal motorcycle accident in 1988; and went into recovery after overdosing on cocaine in 1995.
