Busey earned prominence in the 90s with roles in movies like “The Frighteners” and “Starship Troopers.” He then appeared in the comedy “Tomcats” before his career stalled.

The film grossed $121 million on a budget of $105 million and received mostly negative reviews upon release. However, later critics recognized that many had “missed the point” of the film, as it was intended as political satire. Additional roles in the 90s included “The Frighteners.”
