Like most of the girls my age, I had a crush on Kirk Cameron (then of "Growing Pains" fame) for many years. (The same years I had a crush on New Kids on the Block - Joey- and Chad Lowe.) But since those years he has not gone on to years of Hollywood fame and infamy, tabloid covers, and multiple divorces. Instead, he left Hollywood to continue his career in Christian and family focused films.
Today I saw the headline, "Shia LeBeouf's No Kirk Cameron," and I laughed. At first, I thought they were going to make a joke about how Shia is just not that good looking. He's no Kirk Cameron in that respect! But instead the point of the article is about how Kirk's latest movie, Fireproof, came out opposite of Shia's movie, Eagle Eye, this weekend. Naturally, Shia's movie is a huge blockbuster already. But Kirk's film is being promoted by the family-friendly groups, and won't see the number's of Eagle Eye.
But just because I believe in viral marketing, and think more people need to go see a movie that is about saving a marriage, and not about finding comfort in another's arms, and about turning to God for help, instead of Hollywood, I give you the trailer to Fireproof.
I wish more people in Hollywood would be willing to walk away from big roles that pay well, but don't represent their personal values. I greatly admire Kirk Cameron for his choice to not take roles that don't jive with his beliefs. There is no question that he could have gone on to some of the biggest roles in Hollywood- just look at his old castmate Leonardo di Caprio! Personally, I will go see this movie (assuming it ever comes to Utah- right now it isn't), just to support good films. And to see if Kirk Cameron is still as hot as he used to be!
