R. Lee Ermey, 'Full Metal Jacket' Golden Globe Nominee, Dies at 74

quote [ R. Lee Ermey, best known for his Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in "Full Metal Jacket" has died. He was 74.
Ermey’s longtime manager announced the news via a tweet to Ermey’s official Twitter account.
“It is with great sadness that I regret to inform you all that R. Lee Ermey (‘The Gunny’) passed away this morning from complications of pneumonia. He will be greatly missed by all of us,” the tweet reads. ]

As requested from the shoutbox. For a guy who basically played himself on screen, he had a long and successful career. Fare thee well, Sarge.

I thought he'd be in his upper 80s or 90s. 20 years ago when I met him he looked old as dirt already.
