His career then took a major upswing as he was assigned the roles of Lieutenant Lockhart in Stanley Kubrick's " Full Metal Jacket" and Felix Leiterin the James Bondfilm " The Living Daylights". Nothing as prominent followed immediately, though he received good notices for his role as a traumatized Vietnam veteran in Norman Jewison's " In Country".
