Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, Sergeant Hartman, or simply just Hartman, is an fictional character from the 1987 film Full Metal Jacket. He is a foul-mouthed drill sergeant who bullies his recruits, most frequently Private Pyle because he is a "disgusting fatbody". Because of all this, Private Pyle has been driven insane and decided to shoot Hartman, and then commited suicide. He is played by former drill sergeant R. Lee Ermey, who ad-libbed Hartman's quotes during the making of the film.
