The star of the new movie, "Last Ounce of Courage," isn't so different from his character in the film-nor is the small town in which the film is set so different from his hometown of Newport. Marshall Teague, who has been in the acting profession for more than 35 years, calls East Tennessee his hometown.

He has played in numerous movies and TV shows, including appearing opposite Patrick Swayze in the 1989 film "Road House" and taking reoccurring roles in "Walker, Texas Ranger," the popular TV series that starred martial arts expert Chuck Norris.

Teague calls Norris a close personal friend, and "Last Ounce of Courage" carries the Chuck Norris stamp of approval. According to Norris, this is the only movie he has endorsed in which he does not actually have a role. "Last Ounce of Courage" opened in theaters Sept. 14, grossing $1.6 million and making it to the top 15 grossing movies for that weekend.
