Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez (born August 3, 1940), better known by his stage name Martin Sheen, is an American film actor best known for his performance as Capt. Willard in the film Apocalypse Now (1979). He achieved fame through that and his role in the film Badlands (1973) and has made notable film and television appearances including Wall Street (1987), Gettysburg (1993), as President Josiah Bartlet in The West Wing (1999-2006), The Departed (2006), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), and in the Mass Effect video game trilogy. He is considered one of the best actors never to be nominated for an Academy Award despite his acclaimed performances.

Born and raised in the United States from immigrant parents - a Spanish father, Francisco Estevez from Salceda de Caselas in Galicia (Spain) and a first-generation Irish mother, Mary-Anne Phelan from Borrisokane in County Tipperary - he adopted the stage name Martin Sheen to help him gain acting parts. He is the father of four children (Emilio, Ramon, Carlos (later known as Charlie Sheen) and Renee), all of whom are actors, as is his younger brother Joe Estevez. Although known as an actor, Sheen has also directed one film, Cadence (1990), appearing alongside sons, Charlie and Ramon. He has also narrated, produced and directed in documentary television, earning two Daytime Emmy awards in the 1980s. In addition to film and television, Sheen has also become notable for his activism in liberal politics.
