Now that he has another gigantic-toothed mouth to feed, Gary Busey is looking to up his profile. His work over the past decade to position himself as the most-likable person you’re afraid will rail off and kill you has earned him a new movie role.
A press release from The Weinstein Co. announced today that Busey is jumping into the deep end for a change with a role in Pirahnha 3DD. In the film, he’ll play a guy who hopefully emerges from the water with a piranha in his teeth. Take note, John Gulager. The public wants to see Busey turn the tables on the piranha. Anything less will be a missed opportunity. Just like in last year’s Piranha 3D when the filmmakers failed to show a skeleton riding a jet ski. Don’t be like those jerks.
