Charlie Sheen and Martin Sheen

They may share a last name and a knack for winning Golden Globes, but the similarities between this father and son end there. The elder Sheen is a devout Catholic family man best known as President Bartlett on The West Wing, while the younger is recognized mostly for his drug abuse and tabloid antics. Still, television can't get enough of the Sheens.
