‘Yellowstone’ to Baseball, Kevin Costner Does it All
Costner is no amateur when it comes to the big screen. His acting career started in 1981 with the movie Sizzle Beach, USA. However, he wasn’t really on the map until 1987 with his role in The Untouchables, where he played Eliot Ness. The 65-year-old star has been in at least 66 films, and since 2018, he has played the rugged ‘Yellowstone’ patriarch, John Dutton.
In addition, many of Costner’s movies have had to do with baseball, including Chasing Dreams, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, For Love of the Game, and The Upside of Anger. In college, Costner tried out for the baseball team as a walk-on; however, he did not make the team.
The movie from his recent tweet, For Love of the Game, focuses on an older man following his dreams of becoming a professional baseball player. The film follows the perfect game Costner throws at Yankee Stadium as a Detroit Tiger. The star received a nomination for the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor for his performance, and the movie was a box-office disappointment.
Blasphemy for them to nominate our beloved cowboy for such an award.
