Ramon Estevez – Wikipedia

American actor and director

Ramón Luis Estévez (born August 7, 1963), sometimes billed as Ramón Sheen, is an American actor and director who runs Estevez Sheen Productions.[2][3][4][5]

Early life[edit]

Estevez is the second of four children born to actor Martin Sheen and artist Janet Templeton.[2][6] His siblings are actors Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen,[2] and Renée Estevez.[7] His father is of Irish and Spanish descent.

Acting career[edit]

Estevez’s movies include That Was Then… This Is Now (1985) and Cadence (1990).[2][3][8] In Cadence, he played a sycophantic “spineless corporal”[2] to the stockade’s commanding officer.[3][8] Estevez was disguised in Cadence as a funny guard who wore glasses and “his hat most of the time” to prevent being recognized as Charlie Sheen’s brother.[9]

In 1992, Estevez appeared in The Last P.O.W.? The Bobby Garwood Story.[10]

He appeared in Diamond Rio’s 1996 video “It’s All in Your Head”,[11] and has written songs for Diamond Rio. Estevez’s plays include a 1982 Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre performance in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.[12]

Directing and producing career[edit]

Estevez is involved in production development of Warner Bros.-affiliated company, Estevez Sheen Productions,[13] a combination of his father’s real and stage surnames.[14] The production company is located in Los Angeles, California.[15]

In 2010, Estevez approached Michael Ritchie about staging the play The Subject Was Roses at the Mark Taper Forum on behalf of[4] Estevez Sheen Productions.[5][16][17] Martin Sheen created the play’s Timmy on Broadway in 1964 and wanted to revisit it as Timmy’s dad, John.[4] In collaboration with Ritchie and Sheen, Estevez arranged for Brian Geraghty to play a role[17] with Neil Pepe as the director.[4][5][16] The play opened on February 21, 2010 with Estevez in attendance.[18] A 2011 Estevez Sheen Productions project was The Way with James Nesbitt written and directed by Emilio Estevez and starring Martin Sheen.[14][19]

From 2012 to 2014, Estevez co-produced Anger Management with his brother Charlie Sheen.
