FYI, Gary Busey Has Been To Heaven And There Are No Mirrors

Where do I begin here. Hmmm. I begin with actor Curtis Armstrong, who most of you know better as Booger from “Revenge Of The Nerds.” LOVE that movie. But that’s off topic. We are here to talk about Garey Busey’s near-death experience and what he saw. In an interview, Curtis talked about his experience working with Gary Busey in the 2003 movie, “Quigley.” Here’s what he said:

“It was just what you’d imagine. That’s about the best way to put it. We were shooting this movie—which is a horrible movie—and he was supposed to come back from the dead. And he of course, Gary Busey, supposedly had done this—he’d been in an accident and died and came back. He showed up on a set made to look like Heaven, and he looked around and said, ‘I can’t play this scene.’ They were three days behind at this point. But Busey said, ‘It’s nothing like this. I’ve been to Heaven and it doesn’t look like this. That sofa’s all wrong. That mirror is ridiculous. They don’t even have mirrors!’ It was ridiculous. He was completely nuts about the design of Heaven … But then on top of it, one of the guys playing an angel, had also died and come back. And this guy got into an argument with Busey about the way Heaven looked! The two of them wound up coming to blows and they had to send everybody home.”

I had a dream once where I was in heaven and it was an old run-down town with a gas station and everyone ate steak an ice cream all day. And now that I think of it, there were no mirrors. Maybe he knows what he’s talking about. Think about it, why do you need to look at yourself when you’re dead? Call me crazy, but I tend to believe the things Mr. Busey says. Because … why not? So Gary Busey, I pose this question to you: What does heaven look like? [NY Mag via AV Club]
