I never know who any of these people are. I've only heard of Quickybaby because I used to date him when he was a woman.

I highly recommend the entire series.  R. Lee Ermey is hilarious.

I've met the Gunny twice.

What you see on the telly is not an act.  He actually is that crazy IRL, even when the camera isn't on.  Funny as hell.

I can only hope that I'm having as much fun when I get to be his age.

LOL.  I Hate you!!!

I would love to have met him and shake his hand as well as buy him a Beer.

 

Regarding the fun, I mean, doing a TV show, AND getting paid, to shoot guns, drive tanks, ride in Helicopters.  Probably in a top 3 all time in jobs for men along with being a Playboy photographer, and being a young, single billionare.

I understand his audition for an acting part in Full Metal Jacket involved a foul mouthed rant for quite some time, during which he never repeated himself :)

 

Cracking guy and I'm jealous of you phoo, I imagine he'd be quite a character to meet!

Didn't he ad-lib a lot of lines, especially the rants? Love the film and love this guy in it.

That would be a yes.  Ermey's scene was adlibbed.

I honestly find him kind of off-putting, mostly because while yeah, he knows a thing or two and he has enthusiasm in what he says, he's so biased in everything he says and does it's beyond reasonable. I mean the dude's got the American flag so far up his bottom it's like he transmorphed into a bald eagle clenching in one foot the declaration of independence and in the other an AR-15 assault rifle and screaming "FREEEDOOMMMMM!!!!" while it spreads that freedom by pooping atomic bombs on anyone who even looks at him funny.

 

 

EDIT and I don't mean I hate the guy himself, I loved him in Full Metal Jacket, but you gotta admit the dude's got a serious boner for everything American... :D And in a movie that's fine, but in a TV show that's supposed to be at least somewhat educational and portrays actual historical stuff, it kinda rustles my jimmies a bit.

In fact, Lee Ermy was initially the technical advisor on Full Metal Jacket. Legend has it that when he was demonstrating to the actor playing Hartman how to shout at the recruits, the director decided to sack the actor off and get Ermy to play him instead.

I think that's part of his persona if you like, to be the all-american gung-ho US marine, god bless murrica, mom's apple pie and all that guff...

Don't think he was even a "proper" gunny either - I'm sure he was made an honourary gunny sgt after he retired
