    Good bye, Gunny.

    R. Lee Ermey has passed at the age of 74. RIP, Gunny.

    Interesting fact:

    Ermey was not originally cast as the gunnery sergeant in the movie Full Metal Jacket, he was a technical adviser for the actor intended to play the role. Ermey recorded tapes and wrote authentic drill sergeant dialogue to inspire the actor. After director Stanley Kubrick heard the tapes and read the dialogue, he removed the actor and gave Ermey the role. Kubrick allowed Ermey to write all of his own dialogue.
