R Lee Ermey is probably most famous for playing U.S. Marine Gunny Sgt. Hartman in Stanley Kubrick's 1987 film about Vietnam "Full Metal Jacket". Ermey wasn't just acting the part, he'd been a real life Marine Corps Drill Instructor and won the part of Sgt. Hartman after being hired as a technical consultant to the film. Ermey has had a varied second career in the movies and has an entertaining site. Check it out!
