R. Lee Ermey, who played the hard-nosed drill instructor Gunnery Sgt Hartman in the cult Stanley Kubrick film, died this mroning from pneumonia-related complications aged 74.
Ermey enlisted in the Corps in 1961 at the age of 17, providing support for Marine aviators before transitioning into a drill instructor role at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, where he'd done his own recruit training. "He will be greatly missed by all of us", he wrote. According to the Marine Times, he left the Marine Corps as a staff sergeant, and later received an honorary promotion to gunnery sergeant from then-Commandant Gen. James Jones in 2002.
Ermey's most pivotal movie role came with Full Metal Jacket, in which he starred as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, breaking in new Marines at boot camp on Parris Island. He also hosted military documentary shows like the History Channel'sLock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey, and GunnyTime on the Outdoor Channel.
His supervisor mentioned that whereas his characters have been usually hard-nosed and principled, the actual Ermey was a household man and "a sort and delicate soul". During his almost 40-year career as an actor, he appeared in 60 films, often in roles related to army and some of great renown such as Texas massacre, Leaving Las Vegas, Seven, Mississippi in flames and death penalty, among or titles.
Prior to his death, Ermey had not appeared in movies in five years and he said it was because of the liberals in Hollywood.
"Kubrick ate it up", Ermey said. "Matter of fact, call me back, I'm ready to go". It is a awful loss that nobody was prepared for. "He has meant so much to so many people", Rogin told Task & Purpose in a statement. And, it is extremely hard to truly quantify all of the great things this man has selflessly done for, and on behalf of, our many men and women in uniform.
According to Kubrick, Ermey also had a bad auto accident one night in the middle of production and was out for four and half months with broken ribs. And, we will honor his memory with hope and kindness. He starred in a series of other movies over the years, including Mississippi Burning, Prefontaine, Fletch Lives, and a remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
