On the big screen, Sheen recently starred in "The Amazing Spider-Man" (2012), as Ben Parker, and "The Double," opposite Richard Gere and Topher Grace, as Tom Highland.

Martin Sheen is one of our most celebrated, colorful and accomplished journeyman actors. The Ohio native has appeared in more than 65 feature films including a start turn as Army Captain Benjamin L. Willard in Francis Ford Coppola's landmark film "Apocalypse Now," which brought Sheen worldwide recognition. Other notable credits include "Wall Street" with his son Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas, the Academy Award-winning film "Gandhi" with Sir Ben Kingsley, "Catch Me If You Can" with Leonardo Di Caprio and Tom Hanks, "The American President" with Michael Douglas and Annette Bening, and a Golden Globe-nominated breakthrough performance in "The Subject Was Roses."

In 2006, Sheen played ill-fated cop Oliver Queen in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning "The Departed" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg and Alec Baldwin.

The same year, Sheen joined another all-star ensemble cast for the highly acclaimed feature "Bobby," written and directed by his son Emilio Estevez. "Bobby" was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and SAG Award among others. The film also starred Anthony Hopkins, Harry Belafonte, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Hunt, Brian Geraghty, Sharon Stone, William H. Macy, Elijah Wood, Demi Moore and Shia LaBeouf.

For television audiences, Sheen is best recognized for his award-winning role as President Josiah Bartlet in NBC's "The West Wing."

Sheen is a passionate peace and justice activist. He has been arrested or cited 67 times for taking part in non-violent demonstrations against various U.S. military policies, and has championed such causes as the alleviation of poverty and homelessness, human rights for migrant workers, and environmental protection.

In 2008, along with Carlos Santana and Edward James Olmos, Sheen became a National Co-Chair of the effort to win a Federal holiday for the late Cesar E. Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers.

The same year, the University of Notre Dame presented Sheen with the Laetare Medal, the oldest and most prestigious award given to an American Catholic. Since 1883, the Laetare Medal has been awarded annually to a Catholic "whose genius has ennobled the arts and sciences, illustrated the ideals of the church and enriched the heritage of humanity." Former recipients include President John F. Kennedy, Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr, Sister Helen Prejean, Speaker of the House Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill Jr., Catholic Worker Movement founder Dorothy Day, and Ambassador and author Clare Boothe Luce.
