By now, just about everyone knows who Chris Kyle is.

The late Navy Seal sniper, played by Bradley Cooper in American Sniper, is getting lots of attention these days as the film based on his best-selling memoir smashes box-office records.

Last week, it nabbed a best picture Oscar nomination, and Cooper picked up a nod for best actor. At the recent DC premiere of the film, Kyle’s widow, Taya, says Cooper’s portrayal of her husband is so good it’s “eerie.”

Before he was killed, Kyle made the media rounds to promote his book, including this interview with Conan O’Brien, where you can really get a sense of his mannerisms and sense of humor.

“I’m just a monkey on a gun,” he says, humbly, at one point.

And yeah, if you’ve seen the movie or know anything about his story, watching this is kind of heart-wrenching, especially with his sweet smile and all of his polite “yes, sirs” to O’Brien: “You don’t have to call me ‘sir,’ by the way,” says O’Brien. “I’m a talk-show host!”
