ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany Marine returned from Kuwait three weeks ago to find himself a movie star.  

Captain Ken Bevel is one of the co-stars in the Sherwood movie "Fireproof." An 18-year Marine veteran, Bevel has one of the key supporting roles as a friend of star Kirk Cameron.

After filming, Bevel deployed to Kuwait for six months as an Operations Officer.

Fireproof has been one of the top 10 movies in the country for three weeks, and Bevel says people are recognizing him from the film everywhere he goes.  

"You know I'm not surprised with what God is doing with the movie. It's not the fame or fortune that I was surprised. I was surprised to see the lives that are changed. Husbands and wives coming back to each other. That is the most fantastic part about the movie, just the ministry of the message."

Bevel says the movie has helped his marriage as well.

Fireproof has grossed $17.5 million  at the theatres. The book that is the plot line in the movie, "The Love Dare," this week is the number one best seller on the New York Times paperback advice best seller list.

It's number four on Amazon dot com, and is in it's seventh printing.
