Full Metal Jacket Actor R. Lee Ermey Actor Passes Away At 74

In addition to a glittering acting career, R Lee Ermey served time in the United States Marine Corps as a staff sergeant and an honourary gun sergeant, which he unbdoubtedly must have drawn experience from for his role in Full Metal Jacket. He was 74-years old.

Ermey's manager and publicist Bill Rogin, confirmed his death from complications due to pneumonia, according to a Facebook announcement on Sunday. "He will be greatly missed by all of us", the tweet says.

Thirty years after leaving the Marine Corps, Ermey received an honorary post-service promotion to gunnery sergeant for his continued support to Americans in the military.

The role, for which Ermey earned a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor, launched a career that included nearly 60 movies, flicks like "Mississippi Burning", "Se7en", "Leaving Las Vegas", "Man of the House" and the remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

He appeared in 60 films during his career, including Mississippi Burning, Toy Soldiers, On Deadly Ground, Murder In The First, and more.

The family members were aware about the incident and the father is being questioned. Two teams have been formed to track down the suspect's hideouts and nab him.

Ermey, who typically played military roles in movies, enlisted in the Marine Corps at just 17 after his second arrest for criminal mischief. And, he especially cared deeply for others in need... Like with many people, he first caught my attention as the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket - I'd be quoting lines of his for many, many years. "There are many like it, but this one is mine, '" Rogin added. And, we will honor his memory with hope and kindness. "My demeanor happens to be a bit more authoritative and film directors, producers want to capitalize on that".

Ermey was best known for his role in "Full Metal Jacket". "And I love sunshine, I don't know about you". Ermey wasn't originally going to act in the movie, he was hired on as a consultant, but a training video that he made convinced Kubrick to cast him in one of the most iconic roles in movie history. He served as a technical adviser in Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 Vietnam Conflict epic, "Apocalypse Now", by which he additionally had a small function as a helicopter pilot.

Some of Ermey's later work included voiceovers for such TV shows as Spongebob Squarepants and Family Guy, but even in voice only, Ermey's performances were always unmistakable.

Rest in peace, Mr. Ermey.
