Hollywood actor, Gary Busey, says he’s found freedom from drug addiction after decades of drug abuse and numerous brushes with death. The Academy Award nominee says he has finally found restoration and peace in Jesus.
Gary is best known for roles in films like Lethal Weapon and Point Break, as well as his perhaps-less-than-Christian lifestyle tending towards women and cocaine. In 1988, Busey’s life changed forever when he overturned his motorcycle. The actor fractured his skull and he suffered permanent brain damage. This extreme hardship ignited Busey’s interest in religion, and in 1996, he announced that he had officially become a Christian. Busey says, “I am proud to tell Hollywood I am a Christian. For the first time I am now free to be myself.”
William Gary Busey, a prolific character actor, has appeared in over 150 films, including Lethal Weapon (1987), Predator 2 (1990), Point Break (1991), Under Siege (1992), The Firm (1993), Carried Away (1996), Black Sheep (1996), Lost Highway (1997), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), The Gingerdead Man (2005), Quigley (2003), and Piranha 3DD (2012). Gary also made guest appearances on television shows such as Gunsmoke, Walker, Texas Ranger, Law & Order, Scrubs, Impractical Jokers, and Entourage.
“I saw angels,” Gary Busey told Larry King in 2005, referring to his near-death experience on an operating table after his 1988 motorcycle accident. “And they don’t look like what they look like on Christmas cards,” he added. “They’re big balls of light that float and carry nothing but love and warmth.” That led to his 1996 announcement: “I am proud to tell Hollywood I am a Christian. For the first time, I am now free to be myself.”
In this interview with Christian Walk, Gary Busey discusses his faith in Jesus Christ.
