Listen to some of our favorite interviews on The Leonard Lopate Show.
Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez discuss their careers, relationship, family, and faith. Their dual memoir, Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son, tells stories about more than 50 years of family history and reflect on their life journeys.
Martin, I love your laugh and that you laugh so easily and generously. :)
Favorite Brando line from Apocalypse Now..."I swallowed a bug." I think Val Kilmer mimiced this in The Island of Dr. Moreau remake. Second favorite - "I can't make up any more dialog today."

Wow! You probably still sharing some fecal bacteria with them...
Much as I admire Harvey Keitel, Al Pacino, and Robert DeNiro, I don't think any of them could have carried off the role in Apocalypse Now the way Martin Sheen did. They're simply too New York. But apart from that, Sheen's performance was absolutely mesmerizing and doesn't allow one to think of anyone else in the role.
...and i generally find celebrities loathsome.
I like these guys.
Are they members of Film Actors Guild?
I remember visiting a boyfriend who was on the crew of That Championship Season and the swimming pool at the hotel was filled with the kids of the director and actors: Jason Patric, Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Mira Sorvino, Laura Dern, and others. 1982, who knew?
Can they talk about working together on "The Way" which was directed by Emilio. Was your father day to work with as an actor? Did you ever want to fire him?
