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:
  • Born at 8:03 p.m. ET.
  • As an admirer and supporter of actor 'James Dean (I)' (qv) and his legacy, he worked to preserve the high school in Fairmount that Dean attended. In addition, he has visited Fairmount for Dean-related events.
  • Is portrayed by 'James Hayden' (qv) in _The Patricia Neal Story (1981) (TV)_ (qv)
  • Is a strong advocate for the closing of the School of the Americas, a military base that trains Latin American soldiers (allegedly teaching techniques of torture and political terror). Has been involved in a large protest every year since 1998.
  • Of all the U.S. presidents, he admires 'Jimmy Carter (I)' (qv) the most.
  • Due to his commitment to _"The West Wing" (1999)_ (qv), was unable to reprise the role of Robert E. Lee in the _Gettysburg (1993)_ (qv) prequel, _Gods and Generals (2003)_ (qv). 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).
  • Suffered a severe heart attack while filming _Apocalypse Now (1979)_ (qv).
  • Was arrested more than 70 times, mainly for liberal protests.
