Jake Busey biography

The Predator

Jake Busey

Born: June 15, 1971

Born in Los Angeles, California, Jake (sometimes credited as Jacob Busey) followed his look-alike father, actor Gary Busey, into show business. He began his career at the age of six when he appeared in the drama, Straight Time, starring Dustin Hoffman. Since then he's done everything from comedy to sci-fi and spanned from movies to television.

He appeared in the Christmas family comedy Christmas With the Kranks (2004) alongside Tim Allen, and also in the hit television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He had a recurring role on the series From Dusk Til Dawn as Professor Aiden "Sex Machine" Tanner.

Most recently, Jake appeared in the sci-fi action film The Predator (2018) alongside Boyd Holbrook and Sterling K. Brown.

Much like his father (who sustained severe head injuries in a 1998 motorcycle), Jake enjoys riding motorcycles and plays in a band. He has a pilot's license and this time, his father decided to follow in his son's footsteps, signing up for pilot lessons in June 2003 at the same flight school where Jake received his training.

Jake and his partner April Hutchinson have one child together, a daughter named Autumn Rosalia Busey.
