NEW YORK, Oct. 15 (UPI) — Gary Busey is joining the cast of “Perfect Crime,” the longest running off-Broadway play.
“Our playwright Warren Manzi, who died earlier this year, would have been so thrilled that Gary is playing Lionel McAuley — it’s perfect casting,” Armand Hyatt, executive producer of “Perfect Crime,” said in a statement.
Lionel is described in press notes as “a brilliant, charismatic, serial killer.” Busey will play the role opposite Catherine Russell, a Guinness Book, world-record holder for having never missed a performance in the show’s 30-year history.
Busey’s two-week engagement will run Nov. 21 through Dec. 4 at The Theater Center.
The show also features Richard Shoberg, Hugh Hysell, David Butler and Patrick Robustelli.
Busey’s credits include “Sharknado,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Celebrity Apprentice,” “The Buddy Holly Story,” “Gunsmoke,” “Lethal Weapon” and “Point Break.”
