Actor has died 74

Roles in 'Mississippi Burning' , 'Seven' and the voice behind Sarge in the Toy Story films....he did also present military style shows on TV

Probably his most famous role was the brutal drill instructor in 'Full Metal Jacket'

He ended up getting shot by Lawrence whom he dubbed Private Pyle in the famous latrine scene ......which also featured Private Joker on guard duty


RIP ....his acting was awesome at times...."" Sir, Yes Sir ""

Loved his line to Gene Hackman in Mississippi Burning

"Anderson, you're starting to get so far up my nose, I can feel your boots on my chin ""

Many times have used the lines

‘I bet you can suck a golf ball through a garden hose’ and

‘I didn’t know they stacked shit that high’
But on voyage 34 he finally met himself coming down an up-staircase, and the encounter was crushing

He was rather more than a spokesman; he was on there Board.

In 2010 he had a big ranty diatribe about Obama ruining the country and forcing Socialism onto the USA. He later claimed this upset the Hollywood types and was what led to him not receiving any more film roles.

Still one of my fave filums of all time that is DES. Shame he's gone - from Regimental Sergeant major to top actor - he was good.
Thanks for keeping us up, Harry.
