Last night Piers Morgan looked at the unlikely new plot twists from "Growing Pains" on the heels of Kirk Cameron's anti-gay remarks last Friday on "Piers Morgan Tonight."
"It's now been 20 years since "Growing Pains" ended its run," Morgan said. "The show turned out to be quite an extraordinary spring board for budding superstars." Some of those famous actors include Leonardo DiCaprio, Hilary Swank, Matthew Perry, Heather Graham and even Brad Pitt.
Pitt, "of course, is an activist, as well as an actor championing causes he believes in, including the drive against California's Prop 8 ban on same-sex marriage, which would, one assumes, put him squarely at odds with his former 'Growing Pains' colleague Kirk Cameron."
So far Pitt hasn't commented on Cameron's anti-gay remarks though just about everybody else has including Tracey Gold, who played his sister Carol.
In the words of Morgan, "Only in America would a long-defunct '80s sitcom be at the vanguard of a national debate on religion and morality."
