(Newser) – This could be a bit of a headache for IMDb: When Charlie Sheen appears in the upcoming movie Machete Kills, he won't be Charlie Sheen. Instead he will be billed as Carlos Estevez—marking the first time in his acting career that Sheen will use his birth name, reports TMZ. (Dad Martin Sheen was born Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez, and brother Emilio has always used his real last name, notes the Huffington Post.) The move is presumed to be a temporary one, and TMZ speculates that Sheen is celebrating his Latino roots in the spirit of the Robert Rodriguez film.
