Kevin Costner is an iconic and legendary American actor, director, producer, and musician. His accolades include two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and one Emmy Award. My favorite movies , in this order is JFK , The Untouchables, Dances With Wolves, and The Bodyguard – in 1992, in which I was an extra in that movie – where Kevin co-starred with the late Whitney Houston (photo below) , and I got to talk with Kevin about the real truth behind JFK, and was in 2 scenes in the movie with Whitney and Kevin. See 4 photos below-left.
Kevin Costner starred in the Paramount Network series “Yellowstone,” .. “We are thrilled to have such a celebrated actor as Costner to play the lead role in such an important project for Paramount Network.” “Yellowstone” tells the story of the fictional Dutton family, which owns the largest contiguous ranch in the United States — a piece of property that borders Yellowstone National Park and puts the family in constant conflict with a wide range of rivals. In 2018 the 10-episode first season was a very big award winning success! Costner starred as family patriarch John Dutton.
The below photo is when Kevin won two Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director in 1991 for “Dances with Wolves,” and we were lucky enough to meet him in The Governor’s Ball (The Official After-Party for The Oscars), right after The Academy Awards- and he was very nice to all of my friends and myself :
Kevin’s role on “Yellowstone,” was his first regular role on a television series in his long and storied career, but he did previously win an Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award for his role in the History miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys.” On the film side, Costner won the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director in 1991 for “Dances with Wolves.” He is also known for roles in hit films like “The Untouchables,” “JFK,” and “Field of Dreams.”
