Bio

Jake Busey is an American actor, musician and producer best known for his roles as the murderous religious fanatic opposite Jodie Foster in Contact and as smart-mouthed soldier Ace Levy in Starship Troopers.

Busey also plays the recurring role of Professor Aiden Tanner, an archeology professor at Alamo State who counsels Ranger Freddie Gonzalez on a series of gruesome murders that may be connected to a bloody cartel, in the supernatural horror series From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.

He made his motion picture debut in Straight Time alongside his father Gary Busey and Dustin Hoffman. However, it was his breakthrough starring role in Motorcycle Gang for Showtime that launched his career.

Busey then went on to star in such film favorites as Robert Zemeckis' Contact with Jodie Foster, Paul Verhoven's Starship Troopers, and Peter Jackson's The Frighteners, among many others.
