Gary Busey is a famous American voice actor, as well as an actor. Gary Busey rose to prominence in 1978, when he appeared in the main role alongside Don Stroud and Charles Martin Smith in Steve Rash’s biographical film called “The Buddy Holly Story”. For his portrayal of Buddy Holly, Busey received a nomination for an Academy Award in the category of “Best Actor”. Ever since then, Busey had been featured in a variety of popular films and television series. Some of his most notable appearances are in Richard Donner’s “Lethal Weapon” with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, “Under Siege” starring Steven Seagal, Kathryn Bigelow’s “Point Break” with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, and “Black Sheep” to name a few.

Gary Busey Net Worth $1 Million

A well-known actor and voice actor, how rich is Gary Busey? According to sources, Gary Busey’s net worth is estimated to be $1 million. Busey’s wealth diminished over time, largely due to many debts that he has accumulated with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), UCLA Medical Center and “Wells Fargo” banking company to name a few.

Gary Busey was born in 1944 in Texas, United States. Busey studied at Nathan Hale High School, and then enrolled in Pittsburg State University. While at university, Busey became interested in acting and began considering it as a future career option. Busey also went to study at Oklahoma State University, but he failed to graduate from it. Busey’s career in the entertainment industry started with “The Rubber Band”, where he played drums. In addition to that, he took part in the “Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting”, where he performed various skits. When he left “The Rubber Band”, Busey joined “Carp”, with which he released one record under the “Epic Records” label. Busey’s major public exposure came in 1974, when he appeared alongside Jeff Bridges and Clint Eastwood in a crime film called “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot”. He then landed the role of Bobbie Ritchie opposite Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in “A Star Is Born”. Busey’s appearance in the movie not only brought him critical acclaim, but also earned him a nomination for an Academy Award. Around the same time, Busey was featured in “Predator 2” with Danny Glover and Kevin Peter Hall, “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, an adaptation of John Grisham’s novel “The Firm” of the same title, and David Lynch’s “Lost Highway”.

In regards to his personal life, Gary Busey has a son William Jacob Busey with his ex-wife Judy Helkenberg. Currently, Busey is in a relationship with Steffanie Sampson, with whom he had a child in 2010. The couple named their son Luke Sampson Busey.

#Quote
1 [on his Harley Davidson accident] It knocked a big hole in my skull, which filled with bone from my jaw.
2 [on being cast in the title role for The Buddy Holly Story (1978)] They finally realized I have the same-sized teeth.
3 [A Post on Twitter] Running backwards naked through a cornfield at midnight will show you where you've been.
4 (on Jeff Bridges) He's an artist, an actor who wants to tell stories with pictures.
5 The more time you take to come clean, the less time it takes dirt to come for you.
6 If you take shortcuts, you get cut short.
7 Men are failed women at birth.
8 Drinking your own blood is the paradigm of recycling.
9 [To a huge fan who asked him to sign Buddy Holly's name to a color photo]: There IS no OTHER Buddy Holly... I like Buddy fine, but *I'm* Gary Busey.
10 You know what "ROMANCE" stands for? It stands for "Relying On Magnificent And Necessary Compatible Energy".
11 You know what "DOUBT" stands for? It stands for "Debate On Understanding Bewildersome Thoughts".
12 You know what "SOBER" stands for? It stands for "Son Of a B****, Everything's Real"!
13 You know what "FAILING" stands for? It stands for "Finding An Important Lesson, Inviting Needed Growth".
14 You know what "FEAR" stands for? It stands for "False Evidence Appearing Real". It's the darkroom where Satan develops his negatives.
15 Never dip lower than you can dip.
16 It's good for everyone to understand that they are to love their enemies, simply because your enemies show you things about yourself you need to change. So in actuality enemies are friends in reverse.
17 Great things like this only happen for the first time once.

#Trademark
1 His large teeth and large smile
