Date of Birth : Sep 3rd 1965
Golden Globe Award-winning and Emmy-nominated American actor.
Sheen began acting in 1974 at the age of nine, appearing in a small role alongside his father in the TV movie The Execution of Private Slovik. Sheen’s film career began in 1984 with minor and supporting roles in films such as Red Dawn (1984), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), and his first major role, in Platoon (1986). In 1987, he starred with his father in Wall Street. In 1988, he appeared opposite his brother Emilio Estevez in Young Guns and again in 1990 in Men at Work. Also in 1990, he starred alongside Clint Eastwood in the buddy cop action film The Rookie.
To some Charlie Sheen has achieved a level of stardom that has eclipsed both his father, Martin Sheen, and brother, Emilio Estevez. Escaping “brat packdom” and establishing himself as a reputable actor has been a long and arduous road.
To others “actor” as a defining word is a big stretch when applied to his career. A career that spans such classics as “Hot Shots!” (1991), “National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon” (1993) and “Major League” (1989).
