Top 5 Amazing Kevin Costner Movies

Kevin Costner movies are part of our culture. He is one of the greatest American actors of all time so narrowing down this list was not going to be easy but we tried our best. I had a chance to talk to him leading up to the release of his newest project, 'Horizon: An American Saga." We sat down on Tuesday, June 4th, to discuss the release of the new project. You can read a little more about that project coming up if you scroll down just a bit. At first, let's get to know Kevin Costner a bit here. Who Is Kevin Costner? He was born in California back on January 18th, 1955, the third child of Bill and Sharon Costner. His father was a electric line servicer and his mother was a welfare worker. They moved regularly for his dad's job, according to his IMBD page. At age 18, he made his own canoe and decided to travel down the same river that Lewis and Clark traveled to the Pacific Ocean. I think we saw some foreshadowing of his love of American history. 08 Mar 2002: Actor Kevin Costner attends the men's Pacific 10 Tournament at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

In fact, he was in "The Big Chill" but most of his work on that film actually ended up getting deleted. He was the cadaver and you really only seeing his arm. From there, things really began to take off for Costner. He has publicly said that westerns are his favorite films and that seems to be the inspiration for his newest film. Kevin Costner Movies, Adding New Project 'Horizon: An American Saga' is Costner's newest massive project set to come out on June 28th. It is set to be part of a four part series with the second part set to release later this summer. His love of the Westerns genre definitely shines through in this ode to American expansion.

A lot of setting up, introduction of the characters and their intentions. I was not left disappointed by any means but very much excited to have the story come full circle (hopefully) in the second part.
