Joe Estevez Interview
Joe Estevez: Leading a Quiet Life in Front of the Scenes
“Movie Stumpers,” a question category on the popular TV game show “Jeopardy,” did not stump this contestant: “When the star wasn’t available, his brother Joe Estevez was brought in to do voiceovers on this 1979 film.”
The correct answer, worth $11,400, was “What is ‘Apocalypse Now’?”
But what about the road not taken in this prompt?
Who is Joe Estevez?
In this day and age, when some personalities in the narcissistic ambiance that Hollywood is known for are just famous for being famous, Joe Estevez has quietly maneuvered under the radar to become one of the most prolific actors under the sun.
Ever since he quit a factory job back in his native Ohio, in 1974, and headed west to join his older brother Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez, better known as Martin Sheen, the 71-year-old has steadily but quietly built an out-of-sight portfolio as an actor. Two hundred-and-forty movie and TV credits are to his name on the Internet Movie database.
“I’m the luckiest person in the world to be doing what I love to do,” said Mr. Estevez in a get-together with the Epoch Times at Souplantaion, an eatery he frequents in Los Angeles’ Atwater Village.
“I’ve made a living at something I love to do—am passionate about. I have a loving, beautiful wife Constance, and three daughters. They are what matters to me.”
What matters might not have materialized if not for an unusual twist of fate in 1979. An untimely medical emergency of Mr. Sheen led Francis Ford Coppola, the director of “Apocalypse Now,” to summon Mr. Estevez to the Philippines to be Mr. Sheen’s stand in and to take over the narration for his character Captain Willard.
But Mr. Coppola was to lose his patience with Mr. Estevez, who kept botching the words due to his intoxication, a malady Mr. Estevez chronicles in a memoir “Wiping off the Sheen.”
Mr. Estevez said he felt humiliated “in the presence of the most powerful director in the world.” This was a defining moment for the character of Joe Estevez, not just an eye-opener to the meaning of you’ll-never-work-in-this-town-again. He finally got the words right.
“I never had a drink since,” he said.
This experience may have mystically foreshadowed his professional path. Despite significant accomplishments in his lifetime, the veteran actor, still with a full head of hair, though gray, has achieved little public recognition. Not only was he not credited for his work in this epic film, but also audiences mistakenly assumed the narration was Mr. Sheen’s.
