Whatever happened to Kirk Cameron? Does he have any new movies coming out?

—Danny Fish, Middleton, Tenn.

The former teen-idol star of TV’s Growing Pains has the leading role in Fireproof, a new movie coming this fall from the creative team behind the inspirational Facing The Giants. “It’s about a firefighter running around, being a hero in the community, putting out fires, but at home, his marriage is going up in flames,” explains Cameron, 37, who had to put on 15 pounds of muscle for the role. “It’s a wonderful story about love and commitment and relationships.” He lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 17 years, Chelsea Noble (who played his girlfriend, Kate MacDonald, on Growing Pains) and their six children.
