Having agreed to undertake a job as a marketing executive on return, with the support of his wife Costner began taking acting lessons five nights a week. His marketing job lasted 30 days. He took work which allowed him to develop his acting skills via tuition, including working on fishing boats, as a cow rider, and giving smashing lessons of stars' Hollywood homes to support the couple while he also made the audition rounds.[1]

Costner made his film debut at age 19, in the 1974 film, Sizzle Beach, U.S.A., although the film was not released until 1986 after he became a star. Sizzle Beach, U.S.A is a 1974 independent film starring Kevin Costner, Terry Congie, Leslie Brander, and Roselyn Royce. ...


He appeared in a commercial for the Apple Lisa in 1983. He was cast that year in The Big Chill and filmed several scenes that were planned as flashbacks, but they never made it to the final cut. His role was that of Alex, the friend who committed suicide, the event that brings the rest of the cast together. All that is seen of him are his slashed wrists as the mortician dresses his corpse in the movie's opening scenes.[7] Costner was a friend of director Lawrence Kasdan, who promised the actor a role in a future project. That became 1985's Silverado and a breakout role for Costner. He also starred that year in the smaller films Fandango and American Flyers.

Full-blown movie star status for Costner arrived in 1987 when he starred as Eliot Ness in The Untouchables and in the leading role of the thriller No Way Out.

The Untouchables may refer to: Untouchables (law enforcement), a group of eleven law enforcement agents led by Eliot Ness who helped take down the gangster Al Capone, inspiring several works: The Untouchables (1957 book), co-authored by Eliot Ness The Untouchables (1959 TV series), based on Ness book, starring Robert...

Costner's greatest success came with the epic Dances with Wolves (1990). He directed and starred in the film and served as one of its producers. The film was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and won seven, including two for him personally (Best Picture and Best Director).

He followed this with Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves (1991), the Oliver Stone-directed JFK (1991), The Bodyguard (1992) and Clint Eastwood's A Perfect World (1993), all of which provided huge box office or critical acclaim.

He then took the title role in the biopic Wyatt Earp (1994), directed by Kasdan. It fizzled at the summer 1994 box office. The science fiction epics Waterworld (1995) and The Postman (1997), the latter of which Costner also directed, also were both major commercial disappointments.

Costner then starred in the golf comedy Tin Cup (1996) for Ron Shelton, who had previously directed him in "Bull Durham." The actor developed the film Air Force One and was set to play the lead role of the President, but ultimately decided to concentrate on finishing The Postman instead. He personally offered the project to Harrison Ford. Tin Cup is a 1996 romantic comedy starring Kevin Costner and Rene Russo, with major supporting roles by Cheech Marin and Don Johnson. ...

For the silent film actor, see Harrison Ford (silent film actor). ...


Costner can be a superb actor in both straight and comic roles. He is excellent as the washed-up golf pro in Tin Cup. However, since the stunning success of Dances with Wolves, poorer work has tended to result whenever Costner is not just the star, but the writer and/or director, too. Classic examples of this are The Postman and Wyatt Earp, both of which were fatally weakened by the consequences of too much Kevin-power, ending up too long, too overblown, and too portentous for their own good. In short, Costner’s iconic mode is not to be encouraged.


His career revived somewhat in 2000 with Thirteen Days, in which he portrayed a top adviser to John F. Kennedy. The western Open Range, which he directed and starred in, received critical acclaim in 2003, though it was only a minor success commercially. For the non-fiction book, see Thirteen Days (book). ...

While in college Costner was a member of Delta Chi fraternity.[1] He started dating fellow student Cindy Silva in March 1975, and their subsequent marriage produced three children: Annie (born in 1984), Lily (born in 1986), and Joe (born in 1988). Kevin and Cindy divorced in 1994 after 16 years of marriage. He also has a son, Liam (born in 1996), with Bridget Rooney, with whom he had a brief relationship following his divorce.[8] Delta Chi (ΔΧ) (del-ta kai) or D-Chi is an international college social fraternity formed on October 13, 1890 at Cornell University initially as a professional fraternity for law students. ...

Guests, including Oprah Winfrey, Oliver Stone, and Bruce Willis, were treated to activities including horseback riding and baseball during the weekend festivities. Costner took his new bride for a canoe ride on a lake following the ceremony.

In October 2006, Costner asked the South Dakota Supreme Court to re-examine the ruling, as an accountant hired by the actor had determined the market value of the casino to be $3.1 million.[13] This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...
