Career[edit]

Acting career[edit]

Estevez's movies include The Dead Zone (1983), 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 both their real and stage names.[14] The production company is located in Los Angeles, California.[15]

In 2010, Estevez approached Michael Ritchie about staging a play, The Subject Was Roses, at the Mark Taper Forum on the behalf of the production company Estevez runs for Martin Sheen[4] called 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]

Since 2012, Estevez is co-producing Anger Management (TV series) with his brother Charlie Sheen, on FX.
