Actor Emilio Estevez, who first rose to fame in the "Brat Pack" movies The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire, is the son of actor Martin Sheen and the brother of Charlie Sheen (Platoon, Wall Street, Major League). Estevez is the family's real name. For a real hoot, check out Emilio's uncle Joe Estevez in the straight-to-video flick Beach Babes from Beyond, which also features Sylvester Stallone's mom and Patrick Swayze's brother.
When Martin Sheen suffered a heart attack during the filming of Apocalpyse Now, Joe Estevez stood in for him in a number of long shots and for some of the voiceovers. Martin's daughter, Renée Estevez, is an actress who made frequent appearances on her father's show The West Wing. Fourth sibling Ramon Estevez has about 20 small roles to his credit, including an appearance on The West Wing. In 2008, Emilio guest starred as an old friend of Charlie's character on an episode of Two and a Half Men.
In January 2011, Charlie's successful CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men went on hiatus while the actor received substance abuse treatment in his home. The rehabilitation attempt marked the third in the past 12 months for the actor. In March of the same year, Charlie again made headlines when he was fired from the show after repeated negative public comments about the show's creator and his desire for a hefty pay increase. He then began acting bizarrely, claiming he was a "warlock" with "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA." Hot on the heels of what the public widely considered a meltdown, he decided to launch a national comedy/speaking tour, "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option." Though the shows sold out quickly, Charlie's performances were met with highly mixed reviews.
In June 2012, Charlie began starring on a new FX sitcom, Anger Management, in which he plays a former ballplayer-turned-anger management therapist. Martin appears on the August 16 episode titled "Charlie's Dad Visits," in which he plays, of course, his son's character's father.
