Default R L Ermey dies at the age of 74

I'm surprised no one has mentioned this.

I've never seen Fullmetal Jacket fully, but his scenes were always entertaining to watch. It was also great hearing his voice in other things such as Toy Story.

It was sad to see this pop up in my Twitter feed. I never knew him for anything outside of Toy Story though.

My condolences to his family and relatives.

The man left quite an impression on the masses with his portrayal of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket. I would post the clip from the movie but... I am pretty sure I am going to get the ban hammer faster than you can say "Private Snowball" .

The fact he improvised most (all?) of his major scene in Full Metal Jacket is neato. Also forgot/never knew he was the voice of Sarge in Toy Story, but it makes sense! He and Papillon Soo Soo were sickly snubbed at the Oscars.
