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