Remarkably talented actor who shot to fame during the 1970s through off-beat hits directed by New Hollywood directors, such as Terrence Malick's Badlands and Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now. His introspective acting style was a perfect fit for the new leading man of the 1970s. From the 1980s and on, Sheen has usually been deployed in supporting roles, several times opposite one or more of his sons: with Charlie in Wall Street (1987), with Charlie and Ramon in Cadence (1990) (also director), and later in three films directed by his oldest son Emilio. For younger audiences, Sheen is probably best known from the TV-series The West Wing (1999-2006), in which he played the U.S. president.
