Birth Place: Profession: Cast ... actor


son of actor Gary Busey, whom he physically favors, Jake Busey grew up in Malibu with actors and musicians all around, but did not take acting seriously as a profession until his late teens. His father's well-publicized bouts with substance abuse as well as just being the son of a famous actor made the going tough at first--the younger Busey auditioned for more than two years without winning a role, as casting directors begged off. Finally, some small roles in TV, and the part of Stephen Dorff's gangling, wannabe murderer sidekick in the flop "S.F.W." (1994) demonstrated to Hollywood that Busey could act.
