According to the magazine, in the upcoming Machete Kills, Sheen will be headlined as the star under his birth name.
Just last year Sheen, the son of legendary actor Martin Sheen, told Univision “I don't wake up feeling Latino. I'm a white guy in America.” He legally changed his name at the age of 4. Upon becoming a professional actor, he added the last name Sheen.
Earlier, Martin Sheen legally changed his birth name from Ramon Gerardo Antonio Estevez. Over the years, both father and son have seemingly struggled with their decision.
In a 2003 appearance on Inside The Actors Studio, Martin Sheen told host James Lipton “One of my great regrets is that I didn’t keep my name as it was given to me. I know it bothered my dad.”
Though Charlie Sheen has long hinted he felt he was following in his father’s footsteps in making the name change another sibling, Emilo Estevez, has always kept his birth name.
Sheen, who has also had more than his share of run-ins with the law and battles with drugs, also starred in the hit comedy Two And Half Men before being dismissed from the cast.
