Born: June 15, 1971

Born in Los Angeles, California, Jake (sometimes credited as Jacob Busey) followed his look-alike father, actor Gary Busey, into show business. He began his career at the age of six when he appeared in the drama, Straight Time, starring Dustin Hoffman. Since then he¹s done everything from comedy to sci-fi.

Also like his father, (who sustained severe head injuries in a 1998 motorcycle), Busey enjoys riding motorcycles and plays in a band. He has a pilot's license and this time, his father decided to follow in his son's footsteps, signing up for pilot lessons in June 2003 at the same flight school where Jake received his training.
