R. Lee Ermey Has Died At Age 74

Recommended Posts

R. Lee Ermey, the legendary drill instructor, actor and voice actor has died at the age of 74 from complications of pneumonia. I remember seeing him play Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in the 1987 movie Full Metal Jacket, and he gave one hell of a performance. I didn't really watch other movies he was in yet, but I still admire him for who he was. He will indeed be missed, and my condolences go to his friends and family.

Damn. He's got a lot of heads to unscrew and necks to shit down. I still find it hard to believe he was the toy soldier in Toy Story, but he'd have rightfully chewed me out for calling him the "s" word.

I always admired his performance in Full Metal Jacket. Nothing comes close to it. May he Rest in Peace.

Why must 2018 have the worst deaths ever?

 

Seriously, he was the best actor to come out of absurd comedy.

 

R.I.P.

His voice is in a Doom mod somewhere. Jay's Brutal Doom I believe it is. One of the friendly marines that you teleport in has his voice. It made me smile and chuckle when the friendly marine said his line while mowing down demons "You're the lowest form of life on earth! You're not even a human fucking being!"
