Odd and out-of-work actor Gary Busey has joined the cast of Celebrity Rehab 2 on VH1, which kicked off filming on Monday. Gary, who has been sober for thirteen years, will be on-hand to guide this year’s group through their struggle toward a clean lifestyle.

And speaking of this season’s group, the latest low-level celebrity circus will feature actor and Celebrity Rehab I alum Jeff Conaway, American Idol Season One Top Three finalist Nikki McKibbon, ’80s-era model-actress Amber Smith, former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, Sean Stewart, son of rock legend Rod Stewart, and Rodney King, whose brutal 1991 beating at the hands of four LAPD officers sparked the 1992 L.A Riots.

Celebrity Rehab 2, starring resident addictionologist Dr. Drew Pinsky, premieres on VH1 in October.
