CHICAGO (AP) — Actor Sean Astin is running in Sunday's Chicago Marathon.

Astin is famous for movies like "Goonies," ''Rudy" and the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. But fans probably don't know he runs marathons too.

Astin tells the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1gx8wi6) that he hopes to complete Sunday's 26.2-mile race in 4 hours and 35 minutes. He says his best time is 4 hours and 4 minutes. Astin says he sometimes gets noticed in the corrals before races begin.

The 42-year-old father of three lives in Los Angeles, but says he visits Chicago regularly. He'll be one of about 45,000 runners in the race.
