Bill McKinney

  1.  R Lee Emery, Full Metal Jacket, 1987.    UK director John Boorman loved telling the story how Kubrick wanted McKinney for Gunnery Sergeant Hartman.  But was too scared to meet him – the “I’m gonna make you squeal like a pig. Weeeeeeee!” rapist in Deliverance, 1972!  And so  the USMC consultant, the never blinking ex-US Marines Drill Instructor, R Lee Ermey, was promoted and – without “the goddamned common courtesy to give him a reach-around” –  improvised his way to glory: 99 screen roles in  two decades.
