Call of Duty: Ghosts adding R. Lee Ermey as a screaming drill instructor April 22

New, 19 comments

R. Lee Ermey, the actor best known for playing the drill instructor in Full Metal Jacket, will join the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer voice cast April 22 on Xbox platforms, according to a video released today on the series' official YouTube channel.

Press play above to hear Ermey's voice work in the upcoming Drill Instructor Voice Pack, which will arrive on other platforms after the Xbox Live release. True to his best-known work, Ermey informs players of their major malfunctions with phrases like, "A day without blood is like a day without sunshine!" and "When they drop weapons, take them you idiot!"

Call of Duty: Ghosts won't be Ermey's first foray into video games. The actor has lent his distinctive voice to games in the Toy Story series, where he plays the army man toy sergeant as he does in the movies, and Batman: The Brave and the Bold - The Videogame, where he played Wildcat.

Earlier this month, developer Infinity Ward announced that Snoop Dogg would also join the cast in the Snoop Dogg Voice Pack. For more on the first-person shooter, you can read and watch Polygon's Call of Duty: Ghosts review.
