BDS Celeb Vincent D'Onofrio Regresses Into A Pvt. Pyle Depression



In a great case of life imitating art, Law & Order BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) star, Vincent D'Onofrio, has apparently regressed into his Pvt. Gomer Pyle character in Full Metal Jacket. According to the current (March 19, 2007) edition of the National Enquirer, D'Onofrio "has been prescribed a powerful antipsychotic medication that is often used to treat schizophrenia." In addition, according to the article, "A friend disclosed that during the past year D'Onofrio had been prescribed the drug Seroquel which is often used to battle mental illnesses."

There seems to be a mystery as to what caused D'Onfrio's mental problems: "Los Angeles-based psychiatrist Nathan Kuemmerle, who has not treated D'Onofrio, doesn't know for sure why D'Onofrio would be prescribed this drug." Well, perhaps Dr. Kuemmerle can't figure out the cause of D'Onofrio's current sad mental state but readers of the Nov. 11, 2004 EDITION of the New York Post Page Six have a pretty strong clue as to the reason, severe BDS:


VINCENT D'Onofrio, the star of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," passed out while shooting the hit TV series yesterday morning — prompting insiders to gossip that the actor is "losing it."
"Ever since John Kerry lost the election, [D'Onofrio] has lost his [bleep,]" said our on-set insider.

"He has been getting into fistfights with people, and when he passed out today, we all thought he was faking it. But then he insisted they call 911."

An ambulance raced to the Queens studio, where paramedics found nothing wrong with the gifted actor, who became a star in 1987 with his searing performance as a misfit Marine in "Full Metal Jacket."

Tensions on the "Criminal Intent" set are running high. "No one thinks Vincent will last for much longer," the insider said.

"He is so hard to work with — a total freak. He constantly complains about the scripts and has held up production a lot."

D'Onofrio, a big Kerry supporter, was said to be devastated over President Bush's re-election. "When PAGE SIX [last week] wrote about 'Law & Order' putting up signs forbidding political discussions on set, it was funny," our source said. "Those signs were put up because of [D'Onofrio]."

About a month before the election, D'Onofrio "insisted" on putting up anti-Bush posters and fliers, "and would attack anyone who disagreed with him," the spy added.

In response, "Law & Order" producers posted signs banning political discussions or anything else that would impede work on set, implying that D'Onofrio had held up taping of the show with his political zealotry.

D'Onofrio's co-stars, Kathryn Erbe, Jamey Sheridan and Courtney B. Vance, are said to be fed up with his antics.

"No one — and I do mean no one — talks to him anymore," the insider added.


Vincent D'Onofrio was just acting when he portrayed Pvt. Gomer Pyle in Full Metal Jacket. However, due to his severe BDS, D'Onofrio has apparently BECOME Pvt. Pyle. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if right now D'Onofrio is sitting on a toilet seat in some darkened bathroom gloomily saying things like:


"Seven-six-two millimeter. Full metal jacket."

Or...

"I *am*... in a world... of shit."

Even though D'Onofrio is a BDS leftwing wacko, I am not totally unsympathetic to his plight. Therefore I recommend immediate intervention by Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. This could begin by Hartman gently asking Vincent "Pvt. Pyle" D'Onofrio:

"What is your major malfunction, numbnuts? Didn't Mommy and Daddy show you enough attention when you were a child?"

What a shame. I really like his acting, starting with "The Taking of Pelham 123".

The on-set collapse (due to over-exertion - he was working too much) was over a year ago. After which his shooting schedule was altered. Using the National Enquirer as a source is absurd. All this information is either flat out false OR out of date. He's a very talented actor who - from reputable sources - is reputed to have a good working relationship with his fellow actors (he and Erbe are reportedly "like brother and sister" after working together for so long) on Law and Order. This is just ridiculous.

it's to bad he's getting a
reputation as a troubled and
troublesome actor. He better
retire while he can hold his
head up. What Happned? He
was really great in the past.
Wish he could see these bloggs
and clean up his act, it's not
to late. Start with the Enquire
most people believe what they see.
Put out some damage control.

If you want to go start something ugly online, you could post the National Enquirer story at the imdb discussion board ...but be warned...those girls will take over your blog comments here. LOL!

Seriously though I think the story's bogus not because it's in the Enquirer, but because it's about an actor the Enquirer barely recognizes as existing. I guess since Brittney Spears has recently taken to wearing underwear, which left a little space for the Enquirer to fill.

And for the record I don't give a flaming one about an actor's politics unless he/she expresses a desire to hold public office. I am also a political independent. But you're free to judge people on your perception of their political beliefs just as I'm free to think you're not so bright for judging people predominantly on that basis.

I met Vincent a few years ago I want to say I met him in 2003. It was around the time that Vin's wife left him. The guy is a total narcissist.

Since 2004 or 2005 I have noticed a big change in Vin. He became somewhat delusional and very angry. He often spoke of the Mother's of his children and how they tricked him by getting pregnant. Although he loves his kids. He holds a great deal of anger over being tricked.

In the middle of 2006 I received a call from Carin his current significant other she had searched Vin's cell phone records and found my number. I never told her the nature of my relationship with Vin. She did not believe it. I have had so many talks with Vin about medication he is taking. He was diagnosed not with just depression, but bipolar disorder. Not only was he taking seroquel, but also abilify, and lamictal. He told me that he did not feel as though he was really losing it until after he did the movie the cell. He said that his research disturbed him so much, but intrigued him at the same time. He used to go into details about his research on serial killers. It gave me thecreeps. Anyway... I could tell you a million stories. What it boils down to is that the man is under so much stress, that couple with a mental illness and it is impossible to communicate, yet be any kind of a decent human being to anyone. People including me are sick of him.

Its sad when some folks have nothing better to do with their time than to post hateful, fictional messages. Our family works in the industry and over the years we've had many personal and professional contacts and relationships with actors - including Mr. D'Onofrio. He has never been anything other than cordial and friendly (as friendly as a shy person can be) to all I know who have met and/or worked with him. My guess is that the original poster has never even met Vincent. And who in their own right mind believes "anything" printed in the tabloids - especially the Enquirer - Ha! SAD!

I couln't agree with you more. Believing what you read in the papers or listening gossip makes you a muppet.
Maybe if he did have depression it was caused by people who start off malicious rumours.

I have watched Law And Order for several years and have also seen Vincent D'Onofrio in several other film and TV productions which seem to indicate a sensitive diposition in this actor.
It really angers and upsets me to read typically ill-informed 'he's losing it'-type comments within a hair's-breadth of what seems to be a suggestion of the possibility of a violent outcome. The character Mr D'Onofrio played in Full Metal Jacket was a fictional creation. The fact that he was able to inhabit the part so very successfully is not an indication that he will go gung-ho with a firearm, which would seem to be the veiled suggestion here.
So Mr D'Onofrio is taking the medication Seroquel for Bipolar Disorder? Then it is obvious that he has gone through a significant period of extreme emotional distress. He would not have been prescribed this powerful medication otherwise (which can have some very distressing side-effects). It is cruel, ignorant, and judgemental through fear to mock this actor for having a psychiatric disorder. I am constantly distressed by the attitudes of those who have not experienced such illness. Through what is their desperation to distance themselves from such illnesses (which, through my own personal experience, I can assure you are a hellish torment of mental and emotional torture) they fall back on the same old tasteless and unpleasant mockery of behaviour that may be displayed as a result of internal suffering. What people cannot understand or relate to, they attack for its difference. Those who would like to consider themselves 'normal' (?) scapegoat and pigeonhole to make themselves feel more secure in their apparent normality, and to distance themselves from what they do not, and do not want to, understand. After all, who would choose to go through such a living nightmare such as Manic Depression? My heart goes out to this man. Not only has he been struggling to cope with a major psychiatric disorder while trying to meet the punishing schedule of a long-running and highly successful television drama (often dealing with distressing subject matter), he has also had to deal with the ignorant and unpleasant reactions of media hacks. They puke out knee-jerk, 'loony losing it' nonsense without bothering to find out anything about the actual personal experience of the individual attacked. I urge you to do some research on Bipolar Disorder. Try to listen to the experiences of anyone you know who has had mental health problems. You are more likely to suffer violent attack outside a bar at closing time than when walking through a psychiatric ward. A person is no more likely to be violent if they have a major psychiatric illness than any other beer-chugging/workaholic/close-to-obsessive neat freak 'normal person'. Its all neurotic behaviour symptomatic of the human condition. Mental illness leads to more extreme outward 'strangeness' because the unpleasant emotion going on on the inside is more extreme. People with mental health problems are more likely to harm themselves than anyone else. People who are unfortunate enough to have schizophrenia are more likely to be murdered than to murder due to the lack of care they give themselves in avoiding dangerous situations.
I agree with the last comment posted. It is disgusting that distress such as this is prolonged by media obsession with picking apart the minutiae of those in the public eye. People who are celebrities of whatever level of fame are not business brands, inanimate and unresponsive. They are human beings, vulnerable and responsive to outside influence. Please consider this before posting another insensitive and ill-informed, masturbatory slab of tabloid trash.

I'm a fan of Vincent D'onofrio, but, like all decent, right thinking people everywhere, I grow weary of the weak and sick. We all know mental illness has nothing at all to do with the neuronal inability to correctly absorb serotonin and norepinephrine or other subtlety altered physical characteristics of the brain that medical science has not yet identified, but rather personal weakness of character. After all, it's a known fact that most actors and studio execs are homosexuals or Christ Killers or worse, and while executing their loudly proclaimed plan to acquire all the money in the world (It's in the Torah-I quote: "right after we kill Christ, we can go ahead and acquire all the money in the world"), the Jew employs the sodomite to kill all right thinking Americans by acting like real men and violating women thus spreading the virus - Gods rightful punishment of the sodomite - to right thinking people. In closing fellow right thinkers, lets return to good old American values; reveling in the misfortune of others, bigotry, the military industrial complex, good American DDT and slavery. Let's get together NOW, buy another election and get rid of these Un-American insane, Hebrew, damn Commie pinko liberal peace-queers once and for all .... Huzzah!!!

No one knows if Vincent has a mental illness and too be honest, I think that people are jumping in without looking at the facts. Hes a hard working man with a family, doesn't he have the right to be stressed like the rest of us? Yes, he's famous and in the limelight, but your forgetting he's human. Maybe we should just enjoy his acting and let him deal with any our personal issues that he has.

1 in 20 Americans suffer from depression- it needs to stop being called a mental illness and simply be a condition which most of us will have at one time or another. When you have major depression, you take drugs to try and make it better.
I can't believe the insensitivity of the writer to talk about such a thing. How I wish I could know these people and write about their lives for all to see

I really enjoy MR. D'Onofrio's acting; however, now that I've read many staterments indicating he's a left-wing nut case, I guess I won't be watching L&O:CI any longer. It's too bad actors don't keep their politics to themselves so viewers can just enjoy their performances instead of their freakish antics. So long, Vince.

I am also a BIG FAN of Vincent D'Onofrio. I was very worried when he went from being Robert Goren, the very unusual detective, with dark hair and eyes and tall slim body, to Bobby Goren, a very heavy gray haired puffy faced man who looked tormented. I wish him happiness and peace of mind.

I wonder why so many people come here pretending they know Mr D'Onofrio and make-up allegations of mental illness and bad character on him. Then i think what motivates these individuals is that they are trying to agrandise their sense of self-importance by pretending to know this or that negative aspect of him in order to appear more important than him by comparison in finger-pointing.. it is sad amd shameful that such slandering can really appear out of nowhere.
Get a life..or better, why dont you get yourself your own celebrity!
