Bankrupt Gary Busey
for $4,500 a Week
As TMZ previously reported … the broke-ass actor filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy back in February, claiming to owe a colossal $500k plus to creditors.
Sources tell TMZ … Busey is officially back on the employment bus — he just booked a new scripted pilot, “Mr. Box Office,” with Bill Bellamy (above) — where the actor will play a science teacher who thinks he’s an alien from another planet, named Cordar.
We’re told Busey will be raking in around $4,500 per week — per union rules — playing the delusional, bonkers type character (which is sure to test his acting chops).
According to our rock-solid calculations … it will take Busey at least 111 weeks of steady shooting to pay off his massive debt … and that’s if he doesn’t spend a dime on anything else.
Looks like he’ll have to settle for old moccasins and VHS tapes a little while longer.
