Charlie Sheen Changes Name to Carlos Estevez for Upcoming 'Machete Kills' Film

When viewers see Charlie Sheen in the upcoming film "Machete Kills," they will see the name Carlos Estevez in the credits.

As Deadline reported Friday, Sheen has decided to adopt his birth name in the Robert Rodriguez movie about a rampaging Mexican killer.

For those that weren't aware, Charlie's dad Martin Sheen was born Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estevez and never legally changed it.

So Charlie was legally born Charlie Estevez. This is why Charlie's brother's name is Emilio Estevez.

Martin has been known to say he regretted changing his name.

The film scheduled for September release includes other stars Danny Trejo, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Antonio Banderas, and Vanessa Hudgens.

Lady Gaga will also make her film debut as a result of a chance encounter with Trejo in an Los Angeles tattoo parlor according to Deadline.
