Charlie Sheen: 1965—: Actor.

Charlie Sheen has been a prolific entertainer ever since he began acting as a child alongside his famous father, Martin Sheen. Although at first he thought he might be a baseball player—he was the star pitcher on his high school team—he eventually ended up following in the footsteps of his family. His first big break came when he got a part in Oliver Stone's Platoon, and since then, despite a period of wild behavior that effected his entire life, he has worked steadily in Hollywood and is known and loved by moviegoers everywhere.
