    Stern related as it's Busey.

    As crazy as this guy is, the guy could act and sing. He did all his own singing and lost about 35 lbs for the role. I had no idea he was ever up for an Oscar.

    That was before he bashed his brains into the concrete riding his motorcycle without a helmet. He's not the same person anymore.

    Anyone else think he looks a lot more like Donovan than Buddy Holly.

    It's because of the Busey that predator 2 was my favorite of the Predator flicks.

    Gary Busey is weird:

    Gary's the man. He was up for an Oscar with that acting crowd! That's awesome.

    Did she do her own singing in the movie? I bet she was really fun.

    That's what happens when you're an old fart. You can remember stuff like that.
    I also remember the movie coming out. I was about 14 at the time.
