I hope he got permission, otherwise he's in a world of shiat.

Preparations are already underway for the most obscenity filled eulogy since Monty Python's tribute to Graham Chapman.

Some twinkle-toed cocksucker signed his death warrant.

RIP, Sir.

Now he will need a Full Metal Casket.

I never did figure that out, Gunney. Don't be too harsh.

Get on your knees! fine gentleman actor...

I remember him for Full Metal Jacket, sure, but I also remember him for other things. Things like playing Dr House's (completely abusive) (not) father.

/House's mom slept around
//Probably a lot

Next year, during the in memoriam segment of the Oscars, I'd love for them to pause the maudlin tune just for a segment of one of his salty monologues.

Don't call him "sir".  He worked for a living.

Difference between having a job and working for a living:

Having a job means you wash your hands after going to the bathroom

Working for a living means you wash your hands before you drop trou - Maggot!!

What a character he was.  I remember him as a creepy sheriff in some really odd movie and he.was.creepy.

Stand down, Gunny.  Enjoy your end of tour.

Just saw him on The Watch last night on tv. the Frighteners is one of my favorite movies. There was this comedy he was hilarious in, too..forgot the title of that one, but had Neil Diamond in it if that helps.Anyway, I know him from more than just his most iconic roles, and he was a very talented actor who will be missed.

RIP - Shouty Man.

I thought he was in his early 70's when he made that movie.  I didn't think he was still alive tbh, I thought I saw something about his passing a few years ago.  I was wrong on several levels.

Rip Drill Sergeant Hartman.

Like many folks that joined the military after that movie came out, I watched the first half of FMJ as a kind of prep for basic thinking it would be like that.

He was only 74? Seems like he's been old forever.
