R.I.P R Lee Ermey

r lee ermy

This past Sunday I’m sorry to say we lost a great actor and military serviceman, R Lee. Ermey. Most famously he played the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket (1987) and played the demented but stern Sheriff  Hoyt as well as parts in Seven, Willard (2003) as well as hosting the show Mail Call and even inspiring a Green Lantern character. The man had a presence of authority on screen that was raw and authentic. It always made me smile to see him on screen and his performances were always memorable as hell, if not  some of the most memorable I’ve known. Watch Full Metal Jacket and tell me he didn’t 100% steal that movie. So from Savior and I, rest in peace R Lee, you will be missed.
