STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford resident Guy Fortt, a retired Greenwich firefighter, has appeared on Broadway, starred on the big screen and sung the National Anthem before crowds. And now he has starred in his own ad broadcast on Super Bowl Sunday.

Fortt is one of the "Fearless At 50" profiles made for AARP. His ad, which touts his desire to set the business world on fire, was shown on CBS before the big game, which saved AARP a few bucks.

Fortt, who was a Greenwich fireman for 23 years and who acted in movies and television, lives with his wife, Dr. Tabitha Fortt, in Stamford. They have four children. He appeared in "Oprah Winfrey's The Color Purple" on Broadway. Check out his other roles at his profile at IMBD.com .

Barbara Shipley, senior vice president of brand integration at AARP, told Adweek that it created the "Fearless at 50" campaign featuring four AARP members who have, since reaching the milestone of turning 50, done something fearless.
