BIOGRAPHY:

Purposely flunked his college entrance exam to the University of Dayton so that he could pursue an acting career instead. His father wholeheartedly disapproved until he had gained popular success, not even seeing Martin act until he saw him on the screen at a drive-in in his hometown of Dayton, Ohio.


TRIVIA:
  • Was nominated for Broadway's 1965 Tony Award as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Dramatic) for "The Subject Was Roses," a role that he recreated in the film version of the same name, _The Subject Was Roses (1968)_ (qv).
  • His father, Francisco Estevez, died shortly before the premiere of _"Blind Ambition" (1979)_ (qv). As he was unable to attend the funeral, Martin mourned his father in the scene in which John Dean cries in his jail cell.
  • Was considered for the recurring role of Sloan on _"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993)_ (qv).
  • Born at 8:03 p.m. ET.
  • His admiration for the Rev. 'Fulton J. Sheen' (qv) prompted him to adopt the bishop's name for his acting career.
  • His left arm is 3" shorter than his right due to complications during his birth.
  • Of all the U.S. presidents, he admires 'Jimmy Carter (I)' (qv) the most.
  • Has played American presidents four times; Jed Bartlett on TV series _"The West Wing" (1999)_ (qv), in the TV movie _Medusa's Child (1997) (TV)_ (qv), as 'John F. Kennedy' (qv) in the miniseries _"Kennedy" (1983)_ (qv), and as the "future" president (in a premonition) Greg Stilson in _The Dead Zone (1983)_ (qv).
