I was watching Seven in the other window when I saw this, his character onscreen.

He got his part in full metal jacket by making a video of him screaming at a bunch of extras as they hurled garbage at him. A true goon. RIP sweet prince.

quote:

Ermey played a series of minor film roles until 1987, when he was cast as drill instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket.[6]

Initially, he was intended to be only the technical advisor.[6] Kubrick changed his mind after Ermey put together an instructional tape, in which he went on an extended tirade towards several extras, convincing Kubrick he was the right man for the role.[6] Seeking authenticity for the film, Kubrick allowed Ermey to write or edit his own dialogue and improvise on the set, a notable rarity in a Kubrick film. Kubrick later indicated that Ermey was an excellent performer, often needing just two or three takes per scene, also unusual for a Kubrick film.[7]

Edit: just realized in my rush I misspelled his name - now his ghost is going to skull gently caress my dreams

When I was at MCRD San Diego he was there getting his honorary Gunnery Sgt. promotion.

I was watching full metal jacket the day my recruiter picked me up to take me to the airport. My dad cried like a baby. Never seen that before.

That stinks. I hope he had a good run. I always liked seeing him show up in media where he wasn't just quoting his FMJ stuff, although he seemed happy to do that a lot too.

Dude, ix-nay on the oice-vay.

A couple of decades ago, I lived next to a lady that said he was her cousin. She was mad that he didn't give her money after becoming famous. I was like," I doubt he makes that much money."

Welp, that's my story. Hope his lovely, greedy side of the family won't make it to his funeral.

On December 10, 2010, Ermey denounced the Obama administration's economic policies while speaking at a Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots rally, stating that it was difficult to raise money for the charity because "the economy sucks". He went on to say:

We should all rise up, and we should stop this administration from what they're doing because they're destroying this country. They're driving us into bankruptcy so that they can impose socialism on us, and that's exactly what they're doing, and I'm sick and drat tired of it and I know you are too

I thought I remembered hearing that he said some lovely things too, but I thought he walked that back. I always thought he seemed like a cool dude, all things considered, but I'll wait for goons to come around and ruin that too, just like Jackie Chan (still alive).

Anyway, Mail Call was cool and good.

This guy was about as close to a Japanese tarento that America ever had

In the sense that he wasnt formally trained at anything that made him famous and was able to transition a single movie role into a career of copying that one role over and over

Also he was a piece of poo poo irl so Im glad hes dead, get hosed idiot

Given the era he lived in it makes 100% sense that he would have those views, although that doesn't make them ok.
