Chosen One of the Day: Joe Estevez

There are two kinds of people. Sometimes you're the Martin Sheen, and sometimes you're the Joe Estevez. And you know what? That's OK.

Joe Estevez, brother of Martin Sheen, has appeared in some of the most important (*shakes head no*) films of all time. Not only was he a stand-in for his brother in Apocalypse Now, but he appeared in two of the best Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes — Werewolf and Soultaker — which some critics might argue is far more important. It's me, I'm the critic in this scenario.

Nearly identical to his sibling in all ways except, like, talent, Joe still brings with him an Estevezian twinkle and a Sheenian sheen to his roles. Roles like the puffy anthropologist or Death Guy or... other things probably. I mean Emilio seems like he's doing fine, so he's probably a decent uncle. 

Look what I'm saying is we're not always going to be the revered star of stage and screen. Sometimes we stand next to Robert Z'Dar and look serious and call it a career. And you know what? Sometimes that's enough. Because at least you're not Charlie Sheen. 

Thank you, Joe, for truly winning.
