Recent “Celebrity Apprentice” hopeful Gary Busey has been just fired from his next job too! He was dropped from the movie he was meant to star in after several production team members complained about his behavior on set.
The upcoming movie “Mansion of Blood” was supposed to star Gary Busey. However, production staff said that he had just become too difficult to work with. And he was finally booted off the set when a woman staff member complained about inappropriate comments Gary made. That was one step too far, even in an industry used to divas, and production decided that enough was enough. Gary Busey was fired from the movie and replaced with another actor, even though that meant rewriting the script.
Sources on the movie set say that Gary had already finished shooting about half of his scenes. That made things difficult when replacing Busey, but they managed it. The script was rewritten and another actor was brought in to shoot the rest of what would have been his scenes.
Gary Busey’s rep has confirmed that the actor is no longer associated with the “Mansion of Blood” movie project. However, he is not admitting the firing or any issues that Busey may have had with production staff or a certain lady on set.
His take on it is that, “The situation was plagued by contractual issues and misunderstandings from the outset. Gary considers this episode concluded and has no further comment on the matter.”
Well that is that, then: Gary Busey, you’re fired!
