R. Lee Ermey is a real Marine Gunnery Sergeant and Drill Instructor who got into acting. He has played some pretty amazing characters but ironically his most famous might be playing a Marine Drill Instructor in the movie Full Metal Jacket.

No offense taken but at the same time I just don't see it. Maybe because most of us Yanks know Gunny as this guy
(Warning: vulgar language - don't select if you are easily offended)

And Grandpa Simpson as this guy

BTW here is Gunny's bio from his website http://www.rleeermey.com/about.php
Quote:
As a Golden Globe nominee and Boston Society of Film Critics Award-winner for Best Supporting Actor in director Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket (1987)", R. Lee Ermey is one of the most successful and talented actors working in film and television today.

His numerous roles in feature film include: "Switchback (1997)", starring opposite Dennis Quaid and Danny Glover, "Seven (1995)", "Leaving Las Vegas (1995)", "Murder In The First (1995)", "Life (1999)", "The Frighteners (1996)" and "Sommersby (1993)" as well as his critically acclaimed role opposite Jared Leto in "Prefontaine (1997)". He continues doing numerous voice over roles which span from "The Simpsons" to "Toy Story (1995)" and "Toy Story 2 (1999)".

Ermey spent eleven years in the Marine Corps, Two of which were spent as being a Drill Instructor at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, India Company 3rd Recruit Training Battalion 1965-67, Arrived in Vietnam in 1968 spending 14 months attached to Marine Wing Support Group 17 and 2 tours in Okinawa. He rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant and was medically retired for injuries received. On May 17, 2002 he received an honorary promotion to Gunnery Sergeant (E-7) by Commandant James L. Jones, becoming the first retiree in the history of the Marines to be promoted. Using G.I. Bill benefits, Ermey enrolled at the University of Manila in the Philippines, where he studied drama. Francis Ford Coppola was filming "Apocalypse Now (1979)" in the area and cast Ermey in a featured role. He has since gone on to star or appear in approximately sixty films.

Ermey is no stranger to prestigious television either. He has starred in numerous telefilms including HBO’s "Weapons Of Mass Distraction (1997)", TNT’s "Rough Riders (1997)", and TNT’s "You Know My Name (1999)", starring Sam Elliot, as well as Showtime’s "The Apartment Complex (1999)".

Just before that, Lee was in the feature film "Skipped Parts (2000)", with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Drew Barrymore. He also had a recurring role on FOX’s critically acclaimed "Action", starring Jay Mohr and Illeana Douglas.

Watch Lee each week on his NEW show, LOCK N' LOAD on History. Lee most recently starred in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)". Lee has appeared opposite Jeff Bridges in "Scenes of The Crime (2001)", Harvey Keitel in "Taking Sides (2001)" and Crispin Glover in "Willard (2003)".

Goatlocker, you felt the need to put up a 'vulgar language' warning for THAT, if some big pussy on this site is offended by that I think it would be instructional to find that out, I find your warning offensive.

You must have voted for Obama... and how the hell old are you? I thought it was only our young brain washed masses that were so PC indoctrinated that such a warning would enter their minds...

Ok... I have vented.



Oh, by the way I forgot to say "Goatlocker, if you are easily offended please don't read this comment" sorry.

I guess you can't always judge a book by its cover now can you. 26 year Navy Senior Chief (Google Navy Goat Locker and maybe you'll get a clue) and a Republican but nice try.

However, I am also a Christian who believes in being respectful of others.

I do hope that you feel better after your vent

Have a nice day

Yes, the venting helped.

Thanks for your 26 years in the service of the Country!

I'm former Army, in and out in 3 years.

I'm a heathen who doesn't mind if some weiner gets his panties in a bunch.

Thanks for that clip, the donut scene is priceless.

It's all good and thank you for your service as well.

Being a heathen and former Dog Face maybe you can appreciate this scene since it has extensively more vulgar language (sorry just can't help myself ) Although, depending on when you came in, if the Army boot camp is anything like the Navy's then it is MUCH more PC these days
