CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

MARTIN SHEEN (Roger Strong) is presently best known for his starring role on the award-winning NBC television series "The West Wing." Sheen's portrayal of President Josiah Bartlett has brought him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series, as well as three more Golden Globe nominations, and three Emmy nominations. He was also honored by his peers with a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, and shared with the other members of "The West Wing" cast in two SAG Awards for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series.

It has been more than 20 years since Sheen took on what would be one of the signature roles of his career: the enigmatic Captain Willard in Francis Ford Coppola's searing Vietnam War epic "Apocalypse Now." In 2001, the movie was re-released with added footage, bringing it to a new generation of filmgoers as "Apocalypse Now Redux."

Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Sheen first garnered attention from critics when he starred in the Broadway production of "The Subject Was Roses." He went on to reprise his role in Ulu Grosbard's 1968 screen version of the play, earning a Golden Globe Award nomination for his performance. Sheen also received early praise for his chilling portrait of serial killer Kit Carruthers in Terrence Malick's "Badlands."

Sheen's other notable film credits include Rob Reiner's "The American President," written by "The West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin, Oliver Stone's "Wall Street," Jason Miller's "That Championship Season," and Richard Attenborough's Oscar®-winning Best Picture "Gandhi," to name only a few. He made his feature film directorial debut with "Cadence," in which he also starred with his son, Charlie Sheen.

In addition to "The West Wing," Sheen's myriad television credits include some of the most memorable longform projects of the past three decades, including "The Execution of Private Slovick," for which he earned an Emmy nomination; "That Certain Summer," which was one of the first television dramas to deal openly with homosexuality; "The Missiles of October"; "Blind Ambition"; "In the Custody of Strangers"; "Kennedy," for which he received a Golden Globe nomination; and "Gettysburg," playing General Robert E. Lee. Sheen also won an Emmy Award for his guest starring role on the comedy series "Murphy Brown."
