F. Lee Ermey dies at 74

What a bummer!  Old Gunny has passed away.  He was an unlikely star, originally signing on to Full Metal Jacket as an advisor but wining the role after unleashing an improvised tirade for the director.  He was quite a personality, and will be missed!

Sad news. God Bless the man, the Marine,  that actor, the American. I really enjoyed the interviews with Mr. Ermey. Straight up guy.

That is sad news. He was definitely "one of the few". Always enjoyed his film work. RIP Mr. Ermey .
