ERMEY TALKS TEXAS CHAINSAW

R. Lee Ermey has been around forever, he's been in everything from his best known role as Sgt. Hartman in Full Metal Jacket to Peter Jackson's Frightners to Se7en with Brad Pitt. His next role up is as Sheriff Hoyt in the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, here's a recent interview with the legend and it's quite a laugh!.....

Thanks to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.net for the following news...

Here's some excerpts from DVD Talks interview with bad ass R. Lee Ermey who's latest flick was Willard....

'...I think I'd go along with that. You've met some unpleasant ends, but how do you fare against Leatherface in the Saw remake?'

'[Laughs.] You heard about that, huh? New Line, having come into a certain amount of wealth from Lord of the Rings, decided to take the money they have and invest it in resurrecting some of these wonderful old horror films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I've worked with ol' Tobe Hooper twice now. What a breath of fresh air HE is. What a STRANGE individual! You talk about STRANGE! In Willard, I play the most EVIL character I've ever played, and in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I play the most perverted person I've ever played.'

Perverted in what way?'

'Well, sexually. Just totally perverted in every aspect of life. New Line's raving about Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I won't look at it until it's ready and then I'll make my decision whether it's good. But they're raving about it, so hopefully, it's a good show.'

'Do you actually duke it out with Leatherface?'

'Oh, no! Leatherface is my beloved sibling. Me and Leatherface are tight! [Laughs.] I told you he's PERVERTED in every way. My character is an old sheriff. There's one scene where he's inside of a van wrapping up a really sweet, good-lookin' young lady's body with Saran Wrap. He's got one of the kids in helping him and he tells the boy, 'You know, back in my days as a younger man, I used to love doing this, because I could kinda cop a feel every now and then.' And I reach up and squeeze her boob, right? [Laughs.] Then after that, he's wrapping down below and he says, 'Wooooo-we! She's awful wet down here. You boys have been having some fun with this sweet little girl, haven't you!?' Then he takes his hand out of her crotch and runs it under his nose! He wipes a little of that wetness on his upper lip and says, 'I used to do this, and you know, it lasts the entire day!' Oh, he's perverted alright!'

'Now, do you think that's REALLY going to make the final cut?'

'Well, no, I don't think THAT is going to make the film. But it certainly tells you something about the character! It's the first time we meet him and you've gotta make your grand entrance these days! You don't just gradually become perverted. You start out there! It's the strangeness of the character that I think will sell the role. I look at it from this angle: the director, producer and writer have 15 or 20 different roles to concern themselves with. When I get a character to work on. It's just me and the character. I can spend ALL of my time, every waking hour, thinking about what I'm going to do with this role. Well, obviously, I'm pretty good at designing characters, because I don't get a lot of critics coming down on me. I just concern myself with my characters and it generally works......'

Fore more from Lee Ermy, head on over to DVD Talk for TONS more.
