Ronald Lee Ermey (born March 24, 1944) is a retired U.S. Marine Corps drill instructor and an actor.

Ermey has often played the roles of authority figures, such as his breakout performance as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, Mayor Tilman in the Alan Parker film Mississippi Burning, Bill Bowerman in Prefontaine, Sheriff Hoyt in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, and plastic army men leader Sarge in the Toy Story films.

He has hosted two militainment programs on the History Channel: Mail Call, in which he answered viewers' questions about various militaria both modern and historic; and Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey, which focuses on the development of different types of weapons.

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.

Yeah I know who he is. Pretty much most of his roles have played off of his Full Metal Jacket role.

He's pretty good. He reminds me of my drill instructor. But mine was a young guy (at the time) of 24.... and a pure undulated asshole.

What are DI's like for the UK Army basic training recruits?

No idea. Where I work doesn't deal with raw recruits, it is a training camp for those already serving, cadets, uotcs and officer training exercises.

Oh, ok. I'm sure yours are pretty hard on the recruits. Ours are but political correctness has damped some of what our DI's can do (or even say) to new recruits. Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, ya know.

Btw, Lou Gosset also did a good job portraying a drill instructor in An Officer and A Gentleman. Ermey is an ex-DI so that made his role more believable.
