IMAGINE THAT

Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner MARTIN SHEEN (Dante D'Enzo) is one of America's most celebrated, colorful and accomplished actors.

Moving flawlessly between artistic mediums, Sheen's acting range is breathtaking. On the big screen, the Ohio native has appeared in more than 65 feature films, including a star turn as Army Captain Benjamin L. Willard in Francis Ford Coppola's landmark film "Apocalypse Now,” which brought Sheen worldwide recognition. The film also starred Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper and Robert Duvall. Other notable credits include "Wall Street” co-starring son Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas; the Academy Award®-winning "Ghandi” co-starring Sir Ben Kingsley; "Catch Me If You Can” with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks; "The American President” costarring Michael Douglas and Annette Bening; and his Golden Globe-nominated breakthrough performance as Timmy Cleary in "The Subject Was Roses” – a role he originated on Broadway and for which he received a Tony Award nomination as Best Featured Actor.

In 2006, Sheen appeared in two of the most lauded pictures of the year. He played ill-fated cop Oliver Queenan in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award® and Golden Globe-winning "The Departed” opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg and Alec Baldwin. He also was seen in another all-star ensemble cast, the highly acclaimed feature "Bobby” written and directed by his son Emilio Estevez. "Bobby” was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and a SAG Award and featured Anthony Hopkins, Harry Belafonte, Laurence Fishburne, Sharon Stone, William H. Macy, Elijah Wood, Demi Moore and Heather Graham.

Most recently, Sheen was seen in the thriller "Echelon Conspiracy” and in "Talk to Me” with Don Cheadle. Upcoming projects include the drama "Chamaco,” the romantic drama "Traveling” and the ensemble drama "Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain.”

For television, Sheen won an Emmy Award in 1994 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series on the long-running sitcom "Murphy Brown” starring Candice Bergen. In 2006, Sheen was again nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, this time for the CBS hit comedy "Two and a Half Men” starring Charlie Sheen.

Undoubtedly, Sheen is best recognized for his six-time Emmy nominated performance as President Josiah Bartlet in NBC's "The West Wing” (1999-2006). He won the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor TV Series – Drama in 2001, as well as an ALMA Award and two individual SAG Awards for the White Houseset series.

In addition to series television, Sheen has appeared in several important made-for- television movies and miniseries, including playing President John F. Kennedy in the miniseries "Kennedy,” for which he received a Golden Globe nomination. Returning to his mother's native Ireland in 2006, Sheen fulfilled a lifelong dream of attending college, enrolling at the National University of Ireland, Galway. As a full-time student, he studied English literature, philosophy and oceanography.
