The legend goes that they originally hired him for Full Metal Jacket as an advisor to proof the dialog written by their screenwriter. They brought him in for a meeting and he tore the dialog to absolute shreds and then adlibbed about 30 minutes of profanity in which he did not repeat himself a single time.

The legend also goes that everyone else's lines were written ahead of time, but R Lee Emery's were adlibbed by him during filming. I'm not sure if that's true, because I doubt that the actors could have kept their shit together during filming.

They brought him on to House to play House's Dad.  I don't think anyone else could have played that role.

Love Full Metal Jacket?  Love Music?

Go see Whiplash.   Best film I've seen in years.
