Emilio Estevez (born May 12, 1962) is an American actor, film director, poet, and writer. He started his career as an actor and is famous for being a member of the acting Brat Pack of the 1980s, appearing in The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire. He is also known for The Mighty Ducks, Maximum Overdrive, and his performances in western films such as Young Guns and its sequel. One of his first appearances was "Two-Bit" in The Outsiders.


Early life

Emilio was born on Staten Island, New York, the eldest child of actor Ramón Estévez (Martin Sheen) and artist Janet Templeton. His siblings are Ramon Estevez, Carlos Estevez (Charlie Sheen), and Renee Estevez. Unlike his brother Charlie, Emilio and his other siblings did not adopt their father's stage name because they didn't want to be disrespectful to the heritage.

Estevez initially attended school in the New York public school system, but transferred to a prestigious private academy once his father's career took off. He lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side until his family relocated to Malibu in 1968. When Estevez was eleven years old, his father bought the family a portable movie camera. Emilio attended Santa Monica High School and graduated in 1980. Estevez, his brother Charlie, and their high school friends, Sean and Chris Penn, and Chad and Rob Lowe used the camera to make short films, which Estevez would often write.

Brat Pack years

In the beginning of his career, Estevez appeared as an extra in Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, which starred his father Martin Sheen, but the scenes in which Estevez appeared were deleted. Estevez also appeared in a short film produced at his high school, entitled "Meet Mr. Bomb," an anti-nuclear power movie. He made his stage debut with his father in Mister Roberts at the Burt Reynolds' Dinner Theatre in Jupiter, FL.

Estevez received great attention during the 1980s for being a member of the Brat Pack, and was credited as the leader of the group of young actors. Estevez and Rob Lowe established the Brat Pack when cast as supporting "Greasers" in the first Brat Pack movie, The Outsiders based on the novel, casting Lowe as C. Thomas Howell's older brother Sodapop, with Estevez as the drunken Two-Bit Matthews. During production, he also approached his character as a laid-back guy, and thought up Two-Bit's interest in Mickey Mouse, shown by his uniform of Mickey T-shirts and watching cartoons.

After The Outsiders, Estevez appeared as the punk-rocker turned car-repossessor Otto Maddox in the cult film Repo Man before costarring in The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire. Following the success of these back-to-back Brat Pack staples, he starred in That Was Then, This Is Now (which he cowrote), the horror film Maximum Overdrive (for which he was nominated for a Razzie), and the crime drama Wisdom (with fellow Brat Packer Demi Moore). He went on to lead roles in the comedy/action Stakeout and the westerns Young Guns and Young Guns II.

Later career

In the early 1990s Estevez directed, wrote and starred with his brother Charlie Sheen in the garbage comedy Men at Work. Estevez later stated, "People come up to me on the street and say, Men at Work is the funniest movie I ever saw in my life. But, you know, I do have to question how many movies these people have seen for that film."

In 1992, Estevez starred in The Mighty Ducks as Coach Gordon Bombay, a lawyer with a strong distaste for hockey (this is later revealed to be due to several events that occurred earlier in his life), who is forced into coaching a pee wee hockey team as a form of community service. The film was so successful that it was followed with two sequels. The following year Estevez starred in three films: the dark thriller Judgment Night, the spoof comedy Loaded Weapon 1 and comedy/action Another Stakeout, which was the sequel to his film Stakeout. Estevez has acted alongside his father several times. He starred with him in The War at Home (1996) in which he played a Vietnam War veteran dealing with posttraumatic stress disorder, and guest starred in one episode of The West Wing. Estevez also appeared in an uncredited role, in the Saturn Award-nominated film Mission: Impossible. From 1998 to 1999, he appeared in three television movies: the spaghetti western flick Dollar for the Dead (1998), the comedy Late Last Night (1999), and Rated X (2000), which he also directed. In 2000, Estevez starred in the Moxie! Award-winner thriller Sand, which also starred an ensemble cast that included Denis Leary, Jon Lovitz, Harry Dean Stanton, and Julie Delpy. In 2003, he made his voice acting debut when he helped create the English dub version in The 3 Wise Men with his father Martin Sheen. Later, Estevez starred in The L.A. Riot Spectacular and also voiced the English version of the film Arthur and the Invisibles. He recently guest-starred on Two and a Half Men as an old friend of real-life brother Charlie Sheen’s character.

Directing career

Aside from acting, Estevez has also directed television shows and motion pictures. Most recently, he has directed episodes of the television series Cold Case, Close to Home, The Guardian, Criminal Minds, CSI: NY and Numb3rs. The films he has directed include Men at Work, The War at Home and Bobby. He made his directional debut with the film Wisdom, which made Emilio the youngest person to ever write, direct, and star in a major motion picture.

Estevez has stated that he will direct and star in an independent film called "The Bang Bang Club", as well as that he currently has six screenplays that he has written that remain unproduced. Estevez said during an interview after one of the first screenings of Bobby that his next film will likely be Johnny Longshot.

At the moment, Emilio is in Spain filming his latest project, The Way , where he directs his father Martin Sheen in a story about a man who decides to make the Camino de Santiagomarker after the tragic death of his son in the French Pyrénées.[44004]

Music videos

Estevez appeared in John Parr's "St. Elmo's Fire " music video from the soundtrack of his film with the same name, where he played Kirby Keger. The music video featured all seven of the main cast of the film, looking sadly through the foggy windows of a run-down and fire-damaged version of the St. Elmo's Bar set. The Canadian version of the video intersperses images of Hansen's trek.

Emilio Estevez is a close friend of Jon Bon Jovi. He appeared in Bon Jovi's music video "Blaze of Glory" as Billy the Kid. In turn, Bon Jovi also made a cameo appearance in Young Guns II. Blaze of Glory was in the Young Guns II soundtrack, and was nominated for an Academy Award. In 2000, Estevez made an appearance in another Bon Jovi video "Say It Isn't So", along with Matt LeBlanc, Claudia Schiffer and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Personal life

Estevez has two children with his ex-girlfriend, model Carey Salley. They have a son, Taylor Levi Estevez (born in June 1984), and a daughter, Paloma Rae Estevez (born in February 1986). He was briefly engaged to actress Demi Moore before the relationship ended but remain good friends. The two even starred as a feuding married couple in Bobby, alongside Moore's husband Ashton Kutcher.

On April 29, 1992, Estevez married singer-choreographer Paula Abdul. They divorced in May 1994, with Abdul later stating that she wanted children and Estevez, who already had two children from a previous relationship, did not.

In 2006, Estevez announced his engagement to writer Sonja Magdevski.
