He's the dude from the Geico commercial I posted in another section.......

He plays a Drill Instructor in Full Metal Jacket. He does it well since he actually was one in his earlier days. This is hilarious but so true. This is the way they actually are except these days they can't touch you. Of course, the movie takes place during the Vietnam era. a far cry from his funny portrayal in the Geico commercial.
