February 9, 2012 by staff 

Gary Busey Birthday, William Gary Busey (born June 29, 1944), best known as Gary Busey, is an American film and stage actor, and artist. He has appeared in a large variety of films, as well as making regular appearances on Gunsmoke, Walker, Texas Ranger, Law & Order, and Entourage. He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in 1978 for his role in The Buddy Holly Story.

Busey was born in Goose Creek (now Baytown), Texas, the son of Sadie Virginia (née Arnett), a homemaker, and Delmer Lloyd Busey, a construction design manager. He graduated from Nathan Hale High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1962. While attending Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg (located in southeastern Kansas) on a football scholarship, he became interested in acting.

He then transferred to Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, where he quit school just one class short of graduation.
In 1971, Busey’s wife Judy Helkenberg gave birth to their son, William Jacob Busey, now known as actor Jake Busey. Busey and Judy divorced when Jake was nineteen.

Busey has a daughter named Alectra from a previous relationship.

On December 9, 2009, it was announced that Gary Busey and girlfriend Steffanie Sampson were expecting their first child in May 2010. On February 23, 2010, their son Luke Sampson Busey was born.

Media reports claimed that Busey is a Christian and active minister in Promise Keepers. Promise Keepers says that this is incorrect, that it was never contacted for verification of this false claim, and stated on its website that “There is a story circulating through the media that Gary Busey is a minister at Promise Keepers… This is false.” (It was later discovered that the incorrect report came from a spoof in the satirical website The Onion.)
