`Full Metal Jacket` star R. Lee Ermey dead at 74

US actor and retired Marine R. Lee Ermey, best known for his role as foul-mouthed Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick`s `Full Metal Jacket,` has died, his manager said Sunday. He was 74. Manager Bill Rogin said the Golden Globe nominee Ermey died from complications of pneumonia. `It is with deep sadness that I regret to inform you all that R. Lee Ermey (`The Gunny`) passed away this morning from complications of pneumonia,` he said in a statement on Twitter. `He will be greatly missed by all of us. Semper Fi, Gunny. Godspeed,` he wrote, referencing the motto of the United States Marines Corps, in which Ermey served from 1961 to 1971 when he was medically discharged. Born in Emporia, Kansas in 1944, Ermey bagged his first acting role while studying drama at the University of Manila in the Philippines, landing a part as a helicopter pilot in `Apocalypse Now` (1979). He went on to appear in some 60 films, often in military-related roles.
