He is most known for his role in the 1987 Stanley Kubrick classic Full Metal Jacket, where he played the door gunner who uttered the much-quoted lines "Get some!" (adopted as the byline for the 2008 movie Tropic Thunder) and "Ain't war hell?" Tim was born on June 15, 1951 in Canton, Ohio. When he was 2 years old, his parents moved to Phoenix, Arizona where he grew up. At age 18, Tim enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and spent 13 months in Da Nang, Vietnam. He was discharged on his 20th birthday, and immediately enrolled at Arizona State University, majoring in physical education with his goal of being a wrestling coach. Colceri became a professional golf player after graduating from college. Three years later, he cut a tendon in his little finger and was forced to find a new profession. He worked at the Victoria Station Restaurant near the Miami airport for three years, then got a job with Braniff Airlines as a flight attendant. He got into acting through a friend who was taking an acting class and insisted he try acting.
