Actor Gary Busey, who grew up in Tulsa, will appear on today's episode of "Dr. Phil."
Busey has appeared in hundreds of movies and was nominated for an Academy Award for playing Buddy Holly in “The Buddy Holly Story.” But as his star continued to rise, so did his dangerous behavior.He made headlines for multiple arrests and a near-fatal motorcycle accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, leaving him known more for his off-camera antics than his blockbuster films.
The actor recently released his autobiography "Buseyisms: Gary Busey’s Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth," in which he shares his ups and downs of almost 50 years in Hollywood and surviving a drug overdose. In his book, Busey talks about how a man who called himself the “Devil” showed up at his door with a box and that led to his addiction.
TV host Dr. Phil McGraw will delve into Busey's past, present and future on today's episode, which in Oklahoma City will air from 3 to 4 p.m. on KWTV-9.
