I met him at the airshow where I run parking in 2006. Cool guy.

Funny story, my wife serves food to the VIPs, sponsors, etc. during the event. She was trying to get someone's attention for some reason and R. Lee Ermey hollered "hey, the lady wants to tell you something" in that booming voice of his and the entire area when quiet.

RIP Gunny

He sure had it down. I had a hard time not laughing out loud at the DIs stuff. They were hilarious in a sadistic way. I did pay the price for smiling a few times. After living with my father for 17 yrs, they were a piece of cake.

I always admired him for the way he got the part on FMJ. Man walked the walk.

"Initially, he was intended to be only the technical advisor. 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. 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"
