Does anyone here have a doubt that the actor Gary Busey has Asperger Syndrome? He is on the show Celebrity Apprentice this year and he has all the behaviors of an Aspie. All the clear signs are there. He has extreme difficulty with socializing with others, he pisses people off even though he seems to have good intentions. He has difficulty communicating and conveying his feelings and thoughts, and the guy is just plan weird. I see a lot of myself in him and people react to him like they react to me. He is an extremely talented artist (actor) and was nominated for an Oscar in 1978.

I'm very serious. I've seen his interviews before the accident. The accident didn't change his personality. This is who he is.

Uh, no. His problems are because of brain damage caused by a vehicle accident, not autism. :roll:

He is a very weird guy. Aspergers or no Aspergers, accident or no accident, he is quite the eccentric. He is very good at playing a psycho.

Only a person qualified to diagnose could tell, he is a very strange man from what I have heard and read though.

If he does have AS, I really hope he keeps that to himself! 8O

I also believe that his eccentricities were caused by the accident.

I seriously doubt it. He doesn't seem to have autistic traits at all. Just being "eccentric" can apply to a lot of conditions.. And he doesn't seem eccentric in the way people with asds tend to be eccentric. He's more nonsensical.

He is a legend and cracks me up that's for sure.

I don't think he's aspie though.

Since the silliness of the OP is settled, can we now discuss the best thing to come from Gary Busey: Jake Busey?
