He was in Apocalypse Now too in a small part.  Mississippi Burning too if I'm not mistaken and Se7en.  He plays the uh, the governor, the commisioner, the head cop in Se7en.  He was never meant to be in Full Metal Jacket, was just meant to be a technical advisor but Kubrick cast him.

Yeah  he was a natural in FMJ and has been in a number of main stream movies but was famous for playing military........in Mississippi Burning, another brilliant movie,  he played the local Mayor who hanged himself at the end of the movie even though not implicated in the crime or coverup.........

Kubrick once had to stop filming and ask him what a "reach around" was.
