Gary Busey‘s reputation precedes him these days – he’s been a fixture on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, he shows up often on The Soup and he even accosted poor Jennifer Garner at the 2008 Oscars. So it’s no surprise that when he arrived on-set to play himself for a few episodes of Entourage, his co-stars might be nervous about his odd behavior. What they weren’t prepared for was the tickling.
Kevin Connolly, who plays Eric on the HBO series, said recently that while Busey was guest starring on the show back in 2007, he would try to physically pin Connolly down and tickle him in between takes. Said Connolly of the totally bizarro behavior: “He’s looking at me… and he’s like, ‘Kevin, you and I are going to play a game called tickle and pee.’ I said, ‘Gary, please, I’m 33 years old. It’s emasculating.’ He’s chasing me around on the set. I’m running away from Gary Busey on my set and Gary Busey is freakishly strong. He caught me ultimately and he tickled me. I felt like I was in fifth grade again.”
We’ve heard of a lot of odd celebrity behavior, but this might be some of the weirdest. We just hope Kevin didn’t end up peeing his pants. [Photos: GettyImages]
