Following the news of the death of R. Lee Ermey, Modine and D'Onofrio paid tribute to the iconic actor who broke them down when they all starred in Stanley Kubrick's 1987 war film, Full Metal Jacket.

"He will be greatly missed by all of us", his longtime manager, Bill Rogin, said in a statement.

Ermey served in the United States Marine Corps as a staff sergeant and an honorary gunnery sergeant.

Ermey studied criminology and drama at the University of Manila after his time in the military, and launched his acting career as a Marine in 1978's The Boys in Company C. This was a rarity for Kubrick, but everything from Ermey's undeniably original insults to his real life experiences proved to the auteur that he was the only man for the job.

Ermey was originally meant to function only as a technical adviser to Kubrick, but when Kubrick was impressed by an instructional tape Ermey put together in which he went on long rants at extras, he instead cast him in the role of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. Ermey's iconic voice also made him flawless for animated films. He said, "do it and do it right, that's all I care about".

"And I love sunshine, I don't know about you". He was also a voice actor who contributed to SpongeBob SquarePants, and did the soldier's voice in the Toy Story movies, and in video games and numerous TV commercials.

The role, for which Ermey earned a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor, launched a career that included nearly 60 movies, flicks like "Mississippi Burning", "Se7en", "Leaving Las Vegas", "Man of the House" and the remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

Ermey also hosted the History Channel series Mail Call and Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey and was a board member for the National Rifle Association, as well as a spokesman for Glock.

An outspoken conservative, Ermey spoke to Fox Information in 2016 about being "blackballed" from Hollywood over his political opinions. "I've accomplished over 70 characteristic movies", he stated. "They can destroy you. I don't have to put up with their c-p".
