I saw him in The Boys in Company C. I did not know he played a DI before Full Metal Jacket. It was like I was watching him practice for Full Metal Jacket. A pretty good movie too.

Boys in company C was a good movie. Man, Ermy looked young then. He probably wasn't long out of the Marine Corps.

Originally Lee Ermey was hired as a consultant on how to drill USMC style. He performed a demonstration on videotape in which he yelled obscene insults and abuse non-stop for fifteen minutes without stopping, repeating himself, or even flinching - despite being continuously pelted with tennis balls and oranges. Stanley Kubrick was so impressed that he cast Ermey as Sgt. Hartmann He also was involved in a car accident and he broke all his ribs from one side, he doesn´t move his arm in some scenes at all because of this.

I just got done watching FMJ again this past weekend. I always get a kick out of listening to Ermey go through his stuff ("You are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human f***ing beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit. There is no racism here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops, or greasers. You are all equally worthless to me.......Up and over! Come on Pyle, up and over! Pyle you climb like old people f***. Come on Pyle, whatever you do Private Pyle, don't fall down! That would just break my f***ing heart! Are you quitting Pyle?!!! Well then just f***ing quit!! Get the f*** off of my obstacle you fat walrus piece of shit!! I will rip your balls off so that you cannot contaminate the rest of the world!!!!")

If you blink, you'll miss him in Apocalypse Now. He's in the scene where they're assaulting the village (he crashes in the treeline) and I don't think that he even has a speaking part.

"If God wanted you on top of that obstacle He would have miracled your ass up there!" "I bet if there was some PUSSY on top of that obstacle your could get up there, couldn't you?" "Private Pyle, whatever you do, DON'T FALL DOWN! That would break my f***** heart! " "Are you quitting on me? ARE YOU? Then QUIT - you slimy walrus-looking f****** piece of $h1T! Get the f***** off of MY obstacle!"
