Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

This earnest actor was hailed on Broadway in "The Subject Was Roses"; Sheen got to recreate his performance in the 1968 movie with costars Patricia Neal and Jack Albertson, but it wasn't until 1973 that he landed another comparably good movie role, as the disaffected killer in Terrence Malick's Badlands Later that decade he won his most memorable part, as the Army man sent up-river to find (and assassinate) renegade officer Marlon Brando in Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979). Sheen suffered a heart attack during the strenuous (and seemingly endless) filming in the Philippines, and later discussed the travail in the probing documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse (1991). With the distance of time, he was even able to poke fun at himself and the role in a gag appearance in his son Charlie's parody movie Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993).

A respected actor-if not quite a starSheen has had a sporadic screen career; among his better films are Gandhi (1982), The Dead Zone (1983, cast against type as a slimy politician), and Da (1988, which he also executive produced). Television has offered him far greater opportunities: as the convicted deserter in The Execution of Private Slovik (1974), as President John F. Kennedy in the miniseries "Kennedy" (1983), and as JFK's brother Robert in The Missiles of October (1974), to name just a few. In fact, he's been a prolific small-screen actor since 1961, and continues to appear in telefilms and miniseries, especially those that push his politically conscious buttons. (Sheen is an indefatigable activist for liberal causes who has been arrested many times at protest marches and sit-ins.)

His sons Emilio and Carlos (the latter better known as Charlie Sheen) and daughter Renee are also actors. Martin has appeared in Charlie's Wall Street (1987) and directed him in Cadence (1991), in which they both starred; Charlie's brother Ramon Estevez was also featured in the cast.
