What the Hell Happened to Emilio Estevez?

Emilio Estevez

Emilio Estevez comes from Hollywood royalty.  His dad is actor Martin Sheen.  His brother is Charlie Sheen.  As a child, his best friends were the Penns (Sean and Chris) and the Lowes (Rob and Chad).  Estevez grew up immersed in show biz.  In the early 80’s Estevez became the de facto leader of the actors of his generation.  Collectively, they were known as the Brat Pack and for a short time, they reigned supreme.  As the decade ended, there was a backlash against the Pack.  Among his colleagues, Estevez held up better than others.  But these days, Estevez is rarely heard from.
