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:
  • In 2004, he was listed as an endorser of March for Women's Lives. After learning about this, Feminists for Life, an organization that named him as a "Remarkable Pro-Life Man" in 2001, brought this to his attention, informing him that March for Women's Lives was a pro-choice group. At his request, March for Women's Lives removed his name from their list.

The role was instead played by Lee descendant 'Robert Duvall' (qv), who starred with Sheen in the popular Vietnam War film _Apocalypse Now (1979)_ (qv).
  • Was considered for the recurring role of Sloan on _"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993)_ (qv).
