I won’t even speak of that other asshat Sheen who has been hogging the news lately.
His father is so much more cool than he is (hey, I didn’t say I wouldn’t allude to him whose name has been overspoken in the last couple of weeks).
From the very first moment I saw Martin Sheen in this movie:
I knew I had a major man-crush.
Seeing him later as President Josiah “Jed” Bartlet only solidified that crush.
Dude could play psychotic and presidential. Not many actors can do that. In fact, I only can think of one other: Anthony Hopkins, who played both Hannibal Lecter and Nixon. Mad props to both Ramon and Sir Philip.
Honorable Mention Sheen (no relation to either one of the Sheens already mentioned and to whom I alluded): Michael Sheen, even though I think it looks he really should have shaved for this occasion. Slacker. Regardless, he’s an amazing actor. If you haven’t seen Frost/Nixon or The Queen, then you need to go run to your nearest Red Box and get a copy of one or both. If not there, I’m sure you can find both of them on Netflix. In fact, I know you can.
