Second Step invites Gary Busey, career actor & musician, to be the Keynote Speaker at the BIAOR’s 30th Anniversary Dinner
Friday, March 8, 2013, 6:45 pm | Portland Sheraton Airport Hotel Portland OR
We crossed paths with Gary and his family during a Christmas get-together in California last December. We were particularly impressed by Gary’s intensity, charisma, and friendliness. As many know, Gary survived a severe brain injury following a motorcycle accident in 1988.
Gary will be sharing his story of overcoming and recovery from brain injury at the conference dinner. Please see www.biaoregon.org/annualconference.htm for details.
We hope to see you there.
“GARY BUSEY is enjoying a 43 year career in Hollywood. In fact, 2013 marks the 35th Anniversary of “The Buddy Holly Story” which garnered Busey a BAFTA win and an Academy Award nomination for “Best Actor” both for his performance in the title role of Buddy Holly. He also returns to NBC this year for the new show — “All Star Celebrity Apprentice,” playing for his non-profit charity, www.BuseyFoundation.com.
Busey’s other notable film credits include his memorable roles in “The Firm,” “Under Siege,” “Point Break,” “Big Wednesday,” “Straight Time,” and “Lethal Weapon.” Busey became a household name and ratings sensation with TV audiences, too, in his recent starring roles on Celebrity Wife Swap and the 11th Season of Celebrity Apprentice. Busey’s other TV roles of note are his multiple appearances on HBO’s Entourage as well as a recurring role on the syndicated sit-com, Mr. Box Office, and a special guest-star role on “Two and a Half Men” when Busey played himself.”
