The 14 Craziest Gary Busey Moments

A collection of the best crazy outbursts by lovable, great and legendary lunatic Gary Busey. With over 40 years of acting experience under his belt (click here for an example of his range) - and more than 150 movie credits - Busey has long been a subject of public shock, curiosity, and affection. This list of Gary Busey quotes covers the most outrageous rants and diatribes caught on tape. What I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall on the days when the cameras stop...

It's only fair to disclose that Busey suffered brain damage in 1988 when he crashed a motorcycle at 40 mph while not wearing a helmet. Since then, he had a string of run-ins with the law, variously hospitalized for cocaine and GHB overdoses, arrested for spousal abuse, and filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. After he appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" in 2008, a doctor noted that the accident had weakened Busey's mental filters, which caused him to speak and act impulsively. But let's look on the bright side. Without all that, we might never get gems like this:

"What you see is that you get - but there's a lot of surprises in what you get when you take me. Heh heh."

What are the craziest things Gary Busey has ever? There's a lot of incidents to choose from, but there are only a few to choose from.

    Gary Busey Gets in a Fist Fight Over the Design of Heaven

    f t g r p @
    In late March of 2012, the story that inspired this list broke in an AV Club interview with Curtis Armstrong -- a man most of us know as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds, or as the voice of Snot from American Dad! for all the kids out there. He had, at some point, starred in a movie with Busey called Quigley, in which Gary Busey is reincarnated as a dog who comes back to the land of the living to right all the wrongs he'd done as a human being (a premise that only Busey would say yes to -- well him and Tim Allen... and Rob Schneider... alright moving on).

    Embedded above is the trailer for Quigley, a hallmark of modern film, starring the two. Why anyone would agree to do this is beyond me, but there you have it. These two did a movie together. Curtis Armstrong is a smart man, though, he knew what he was doing and that it was funny.

    Gary Busey, on the other hand, takes everything to the next level of serious. Here's Curtis Armstrong's re-telling of a story that happened because Gary Busey actually believes that he's been to Heaven after being in an accident where he died and came back to life.

    We were shooting this movie—which is a horrible movie—and [Gary Busey] was supposed to come back from the dead. And he of course, Gary Busey, supposedly had done this—he’d been in an accident and died and came back. He showed up on a set made to look like Heaven, and he looked around and said, "I can’t play this scene." They were three days behind at this point. But Busey said, "It’s nothing like this. I’ve been to Heaven and it doesn’t look like this. That sofa’s all wrong. That mirror is ridiculous. They don’t even have mirrors!" It was ridiculous. He was completely nuts about the design of Heaven.

    But then on top of it, one of the guys playing an angel, had also died and come back. And this guy got into an argument with Busey about the way Heaven looked! The two of them wound up coming to blows and they had to send everybody home. So there you go. That’s what we were working with.

    So there you have it. A fist fight over the couches in Heaven.

    Heaven has a certain look. And it sure as hell doesn't just have couches laying around like it's some kind of god damned dump. It's Heaven. You don't know what that looks like for a fact? Get your head out of your ass.
