CHARLIE SHEEN NAME CHANGE: It does not come as a shock that Charlie Sheen’s real name is Carlos Estevez. It has been common knowledge that he took a screen name just like his father, Ramon Antonio Gerard Estevez (aka Martin Sheen) before him, while his brother Emilio Estevez kept the family name on the marquee. What may be a little surprising is that neither father nor son ever legally changed their name. And now, after years of controversial behavior, the real Carlos Estevez is finally stepping forward. That’s right, starring in Machete Kills for director Robert Rodriguez, the troubled actor has reinvented himself. This is the first time in the big screen history of Charlie Sheen that he won’t be billed under his stage name.
Machete Kills was originally scheduled for release on September 13, 2013. And then was moved to October 4, 2013. Its official release date is October 11, 2013.
