Val Kilmer May Have Helped Matthew Modine Secure His Full Metal Jacket Role

It's almost impossible to discuss the greatest war movies of all time without bringing up "Full Metal Jacket." Stanley Kubrick's 1987 Vietnam War epic stars Matthew Modine as young Marine, Private — though he later becomes Sergeant — J.T. "Joker" Davis, who we follow all the way from the brutality of boot camp to the even harsher reality of war. The film is remembered not only for its brutal commentary on war in general, but also for unforgettable performances from Modine, Vincent D'Onofrio, Adam Baldwin, and of course, the late R. Lee Ermey.

Matthew Modine’s “Full Metal Jacket Diary” exhibition, on view through this Saturday, March 5 at Houston’s Alta Arts, puts the unseen and the intimate on display. Stanley Kubrick: his process, his set, his daughter and even his smile.
