RIP R Lee Ermey. SEMPER FI!

Actor R. Lee Ermey of 'Full Metal Jacket' dies at 74 | abc7.com


Actor R. Lee Ermey, best known for his role as a tough drill sergeant in "Full Metal Jacket" has died at age 74, his manager announced Sunday.

Ermey died from complications of pneumonia, according to manager Bill Rogin.

"He will be greatly missed by all of us. Semper Fi, Gunny. Godspeed," Rogin wrote on Tiwitter.

Ermey was a U.S. Marine Corps sergeant in real life and then rose to his greatest acting fame portraying Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in the Stanley Kubrick film.

He made dozens of other appearances in film and television, a number of them in military roles. He also hosted documentary shows on the military including "Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey" on the History Channel and "GunnyTime" on the Outdoor Channel.

He had a lot of great parts in many movies.

They hired him to train the drill sergeants but he could do it better than the actors so they used him instead.

OMG! I was just browsing YouTube for various FMJ clips. I haven't watched the movie in 20 years or so but some of the best parts are on YouTube.


I stumbled across this YTP and just about died. It doesn't exactly honor Ermey but it's funny as hell. Do not watch at work if you have coworkers around. Definitely not SFW and everyone will wonder why you're laughing your ass off.
