Charlie Sheen's Real Name Makes A Comeback: Actor Credited As Carlos Estevez In New Film (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Oh hello there, Charlie Sheen -- or shall we say, Carlos Estevez. The "Two and a Half Men" actor has decided to go back to his birth name of Carlos Estevez for his movie "Machete Kills."

For those who don't know, Charlie Sheen is just a made-up name Estevez took up after his father, Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez, changed his name to Martin Sheen.

Charlie's brother Emilio decided to keep their family name, Estevez, and it now appears as if Sheen has decided to follow suit.

In the flick, the 47-year-old was cast as President of the United States along Lady Gaga, Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba and Danny Trejo. Since Robert Rodriguez, director of "Machete Kills," is known for his latin pride, Sheen decided to be Estevez.
