It isn’t often that a Hollywood actor willingly elects to step away from the cameras or the mirrors for a time to become a member of law enforcement in this country.
It isn’t often that a Hollywood celeb thinks of other people first.
It isn’t often that a Hollywood star wants to help keep Americans safe.
Dean Cain is one of those rare guys.
The actor, best-known for his “Superman” role and other projects, recently became a reserve police officer with the St. Anthony Police Department in Idaho — and he spoke about his new role on “Fox & Friends” this morning (see the video clip just below).
He also talked about the very swift response of the first responders in Annapolis, Maryland, yesterday, after a horrible newsroom shooting at the Capital Gazette unfolded in the afternoon. Five people lost their lives, and others were wounded.
“Real heroes don’t wear capes. Real superheroes wear uniforms and badges and stethoscopes,” he also said recently. “Real superheroes are members of our military, law enforcement, and first responders.”
The deeply dedicated Cain, 51, will continue to act in projects he believes in — and a film he’s worked on for years and stars in, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” based on the real-life case of highly controversial abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, will be released in theaters in this country following a court case over the issue. Cain plays a detective who investigates the case.
Gosnell is in jail for life. In 2011, he was arrested and charged with killing seven infants who survived the initial abortion procedure — and two years after that, he was convicted on three counts of murder and the involuntary manslaughter of one of his patients.
