THE DEPARTED

MARTIN SHEEN (Queenan) earned dual Emmy Award nominations this year: one for his guest appearance on the comedy series "Two and a Half Men,” starring his son Charlie Sheen; and another for his starring role on the acclaimed NBC series "The West Wing,” created by Aaron Sorkin. During his seven-year "term” as President Josiah Bartlet, Sheen also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series, and garnered four more Golden Globe nominations and five additional Emmy nominations in the same category. In addition, he has been honored by his peers with four Screen Actors Guild Awards: two for Best Male Actor in a Drama Series; and two shared with his "The West Wing” castmates for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Sheen won his first Emmy Award in 1994 for his guest role on the comedy series "Murphy Brown.” He had previously earned an Emmy nomination for his performance in the title role of "The Execution of Private Slovik,” and received Golden Globe nominations for his portrayals of John Dean in "Blind Ambition,” and John F. Kennedy in "Kennedy.”

Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Sheen first gained the attention of critics when he starred in the Broadway production of "The Subject Was Roses.” He later earned a Golden Globe Award nomination when he reprised his role in the 1968 screen version of the play.

Sheen went on to receive early praise for his chilling portrait of serial killer Kit Carruthers in Terrence Malick's "Badlands,” and for his performance as the enigmatic Captain Willard in Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War epic, "Apocalypse Now.” Sheen's other notable films credits include Richard Attenborough's Oscar-winning Best Picture "Gandhi,” Oliver Stone's "Wall Street,” Rob Reiner's "The American President,” written by Aaron Sorkin, and Steven Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can.”

Sheen's upcoming films include Gregory Nava's "Bordertown,” with Jennifer Lopez and Antonio Banderas; "Talk to Me,” directed by Kasi Lemmons and starring Don Cheadle; and "Bobby,” in which Sheen joined an ensemble cast under the direction of his son Emilio Estevez.
