Actor Martin Sheen is recovering from quadruple bypass surgery.

Sheen's son, Emilio Estevez, tweeted a picture of his father Thursday, touting the success of what he called a "proactive" procedure.

The 75-year-old star of "The West Wing" and "Apocalypse Now" is out of intensive care and is expected to be home by Christmas.
