This Week, You’re going to hear my interviews with powerhouse actors and filmmakers Kirk Cameron, who of course you know as Mike Seaver on Growing Pains and from starring in such films as Fireproof, the Left Behind triology, and more. You’re going to hear from Kevin Downes, you may know as Officer Shane Fuller in Courageous, from Mom’s Night Out and others – he recently served as a producer on the film Woodlawn which is now available on DVD and Digital HD. 


Kirk Cameron and I discussed directing his latest project, Saving Christmas. We also talked about what it’s like to be a conservative believer in Hollywood, how Christians are held to a different standard, how to make faith-based films that reach people for the Gospel, and more. (1:44)
