Thanks to the popularity of "Growing Pains," Cameron earned a pair of Golden Globe nods and found his face plastered on the pages of Tiger Beat. He also explored the big screen, starring with Dudley Moore in Like Father, Like Son (1987) and Jami Gertz in Listen to Me (1989).
Post-"Growing Pains," Cameron took his career in a different direction, devoting his life to evangelical pursuits and choosing projects with Christian themes, including the Left Behind series of films based on the best-selling books about the End Times.
Kirk Cameron stars as Caleb Holt, a dedicated firefighter whose marriage has taken a severe turn for the worse and is about to end in divorce. But just when hope seems to be running out, his Christian father intervenes in this inspirational drama.
