Gary Busey (733 words)
Gary Busey made his film debut in Angels Hard As They Come, a low-budget 1971 hippies vs. bikers saga, with Busey as a hippie and Scott Glenn as one of the "big men with throbbing machines".
Busey has said that he came to God while he was hospitalized in the aftermath, and after the felony drug charges were dismissed he joined the Christian men's group Promise Keepers.
Busey was criticized for his role as a Jewish-American doctor harvesting kidneys, corneas, and other human organs from Muslim prisoners at Iraq's infamous Abu Ghraib prison, then selling these organs to patients in America, Israel, and England.
