Gunnery Sergeant Hartman wants to know why you are not stomping the guts out of the Federation of the Americas.
Did you believe us yesterday when we mentioned that R. Lee Ermey was lending his voice to Call of Duty: Ghosts in the upcoming Drill Instructor Voice Pack? Now we have proof: A trailer of the man himself in the studio, doing what he does best.
Ermey, who by all appearances is a very nice guy in real life, has appeared in numerous films and television shows over the years, but he will always be best known as the sadistic drill instructor from Full Metal Jacket, one of the most creatively obscene characters ever put to film. It’s a talent he came by honestly: Prior to launching his acting career, Ermey served as a U.S. Marine for more than ten years, including two years as a drill instructor.
It’s kind of sad that Ermey is so non-sweary in the trailer, especially since Call of Duty: Ghosts carries a seriously blood-soaked “M” rating. On the other hand, it is absolutely precious to hear him say “what the heck” – a far cry from the language he used when he wanted to if your parents had any children who lived.
The Call of Duty: Ghosts Voice Packs and a slew of other personalization DLC packs launch on April 22.
