LOS ANGELES -- Comedian Drew Carey received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame placed, appropriately enough for an ex-Marine, in front of The Supply Sergeant military surplus store, a Hollywood fixture for decades.

"It's great being here in front of The Supply Sergeant because if a war breaks out you can buy your military supplies here and think of me," he quipped Friday.

Carey, 44, has played a variation of himself - a prank-loving, beer-swilling Cleveland native - on ABC's "The Drew Carey Show" since 1995 and also hosts the network's improv comedy "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

After undergoing emergency surgery to open a blocked artery in August 2001, the formerly portly comic dropped some weight and adopted a healthier lifestyle.

His star, the 2,216th placed on the Walk of Fame, joins him with such other recent honorees as director Steven Spielberg and actress Nicole Kidman.
