Gary Busey: [to his reflection] HOW AM I DOING TODAY GARY BUSEY?
Gary Busey's Monster Reflection: YOU'RE DOING GREAT!
Gary Busey: GOOD! WELL THEN I'LL KEEP IT UP!Gary Busey (born June 29, 1944) is an American actor and crazy man. His career started out strong enough, with acclaimed and memorable roles in films like Thunderbolt and Lightfoot and Lethal Weapon. Then, in 1988, he got into a motorcycle accident. His skull was fractured, and as a result he suffered brain damage that weakened his mental filters. This went unnoticed by doctors for a long time, and the general view of him was that he was absolutely crazy. It's not an unfair assessment. Busey has something of a cult following due to his hammy performances. He's also the father of Jake Busey.
