A character on the movie Full Metal Jacket. He was given the name by Gunnery Sergeant Hartman because he said "Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?". He also told Hartman that he did not believe in the virgin Mary leaving Hartman to admire him for his honesty and guts and promotes him to squad leader. He went into journalism in the Vietnam war after training.
What do we have here a fucking comedian, private joker.
