Marine, 'Full Metal Jacket,' star R. Lee Ermey Dies at 74

Actor R Lee Ermey, known for his role as foul-mouthed Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Vietnam War film Full Metal Jacket, has died aged 74.

"He will be greatly missed by all of us", Ermey's longtime manager Bill Rogin announced on on Twitter.

"He will be greatly missed by all of us", the message read. It is a awful loss that nobody was prepared for.

Trump tweeted on Thursday that he "would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. Since taking office at the height of the dispute, Abe has sought rapprochement with his country's largest trading partner.

"He has meant so much to so many people 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". Your performance in Full Metal Jacket was one of the best performances I have ever seen. Please support your men and women in uniform. He gave me a choice.

Ermey was a former United States Marine Corps staff sergeant and honorary gunnery sergeant, and served as a drill instructor during his tenure from 1961-1972. When giving orders to clean the barracks latrine, Ermey's character said: "I want that head so sanitary and squared away that the Virgin Mary herself would be proud to go in there and take a dump". "Lee came up with, I don't know, 150 pages of insults".

The role made an impression on viewers, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination and paved way for more film opportunities. Ermey was originally hired as only a technical advisor on the film, but Kubrick was so impressed with Ermey he cast the Marine in the film, replacing actor Tim Colceri.

Although Ermey identified himself as a political independent, many of his views aligned closely with the Republican party. He spent 14 months in Vietnam beginning in 1968 before moving to Okinawa.

By the late 1970s, Mr. Ermey landed one of his first movie roles, as a helicopter pilot in Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now". The actor starred in TV shows and more recently did voice work in commercials and video games. In 2010, he told TMZ he was sacked from a Geico commercial for saying President Obama "impose socialism" on the U.S. He later apologized for the remarks. R. Lee Ermey lived an incredible life and did more in it than most.

The clever, if profane, tirades were of his own invention, Mr. Ermey told The New York Times in 1987.
