Martin Sheen can certainly pulled off a fictional presidency on "West Wing," but the actor said on Friday that he has no intention of running for office in Ireland.

Fans of the actor launched an online campaign, calling on Sheen to run for president of Ireland when the country has elections in October. The 71-year-old actor is an Irish citizen thanks to his late mother.
