R. Lee Ermey, the former Marine who rose to fame by playing the sadistic Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in “Full Metal Jacket,” was laid to rest Friday at Arlington National Cemetery.
A former Marine drill instructor turned successful actor, Ermey, had his cremated remains buried with full military honors. There was a casket team, firing party and bugler, plus a folding and presentation of the American flag.
Ermey’s military honor comes 9 months after his death last April from pneumonia. He was 74.
The actor enlisted in the Marine Corp when he was 17 years old, and he served in Okinawa and in Vietnam.
Ermey gained worldwide fame following his role in Stanley Kubrick‘s “Full Metal Jacket” in 1987, delivering his famous line, “What is your major malfunction?!” Ermey said he used his experience as a drill instructor to bring his character to life.
Ermey appeared in dozens of films, though in his later years he said he had been blackballed from Hollywood because of his political views.
Post Malone is out here rapping Cowboys victories into existence — and with a crazy win over the Giants, he celebrated in the best way possible … making the other guy wear your team’s gear.
The Texas native was at the Cowboys/Giants game Sunday in NY, where he was surrounded by Giants fans … one of whom we’re told he made a bet with. It was simple — if my Cowboys win, ya gotta rock my Cowboys jacket. Well, they won all right … in epic fashion.
With just about a minute left, Dak Prescott threw what you might call a Hail Mary down the field to Cole Beasley, who made an incredible catch in the end zone. At first, it looked like he was out of bounds and the pass was incomplete, but upon further review … it was ruled a TD.
The Cowboys made a two-point conversion after that and went on to win it 36-35. Post, of course, was ecstatic … and, of course, followed up on the bet by making the Giants fan put on his Dallas coat. In this clip, obtained by TMZ, you can see the guy was a good sport.
What’s even crazier … Post rapped about this exact same scenario happening in his new single, “Wow.” … almost down to a tee.
