More from Kevin giving award to Annette Bening.....

More pictures at the following links:,0,3895257.photogallery

Excerpt from article by Brett Johnson: Kevin Costner, who directed Bening in “Open Range,” dropped by to present Bening the award. He called Bening “a director’s best friend — a prepared actress.” Turning to her, he said, “You are so unique and singular.” Costner said she’s on the short list of greatest actresses in Hollywood and at one point called her this generation’s Katharine Hepburn. Said Bening as the evening closed, “Any shred of humility I ever had is gone. Thank you.” At the following link:

Excerpt from article by Lisa Knox Burns: In recognizing Annette Bening's "lasting impression on American Cinema", Kevin Costner noted that Annette, with whom Mr. Costner directed and starred in "Open Range", represents, "The director's best friend - a prepared actress." He said when directors shout, "Action!, it is really a wish supported by a prayer that something magical and close to the human condition will emerge, so electric in its simplicity that people are reminded why they get into this business." And besides, he told the audience, "Who else but you could have created a home for this legendary wanderer, Warren Beatty." At the following link:

Excerpt from article by Kristopher Tapley: (I have to note, as an aside, that I was happy to see so much attention paid to Bening’s work in the underrated western “Open Range” tonight. It’s a great little film and she was just wonderful in it, but not only that, her co-star and director of that film, Kevin Costner, was on hand to present the American Riviera Award this evening. Nice and classy touch.) at the following link:

'Dances With Wolves' 20th Anniversary Blu-ray....

See the "Sunday Conversation" interview from Kevin about 'Dances With Wolves' by Irene Lacher, at the following link:,0,3030870.story
Kevin said: "A Little War" is [about a sheriff] set against World War II, so it's something I want to direct. I'm not a very in-vogue person in Hollywood by any stretch of the imagination, so rather than wail at the moon I've spent the last four years writing and stockpiling what I think are really good commercial movies." Irene asked: Do you have financing for "A Little War"? Kevin: No, I don't. I will make it because that's who I am. I will find the right person, and everybody will be happy at the end of the day that that movie was made.

'The Company Men' in theaters now....

According the following link, 'The Company Men' came out yesterday in about 200 theaters in 24 markets:

To find out if it's playing in your area theaters, you can do a search for “movie theaters” at and several ticket sites will come up along with theaters in your area, at least that happened for me. Doing a search for your zip code in any of the ticket sites should let you know if it's showing in your area. Hopefully it will expand to more theaters next week.

Excerpt from the article at the following link:
When writer-director John Wells made up his wish list for his recession drama "The Company Men," it included Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones.....When casting was finished, he had Affleck, Costner and Jones. Plus Chris Cooper. Four Oscars in all. And he didn't even have to ask. Costner called HIM, out of the blue. "His agent called and said he wants to play this guy Jack, and I was floored. When I was writing it, I'd actually pictured Kevin in the role."

Another invention that Kevin has invested in...

At the following link:
It's called 'The Bodyguard' – an electrified arm shield for police officers, guards or soldiers to deliver a less-than-lethal and loud electrical shock to any aggressor who attacks. It's able to record video and audio evidence that can be GPS and time/date-stamped for court purposes. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will soon test and evaluate several pre-production prototypes of it. It was invented by David Brown, an avid hiker, who was inspired to create the BodyGuard when a cougar attacked three mountain bikers – killing one of them – on one of his favorite trails near his home in Southern California, about seven years ago. Brown, who is a cameraman in the movie industry, has partnered with Kevin Costner and Sheriff John Bunnell (retired), host of “World's Wildest Police Videos” in a company they call 'Armstar' which is headed by Andrew Quintero of Aerospace Corporation. 'The BodyGuard' will also be showcased at the 15th Annual Mock Prison Riot in Moundsville, West Virginia, in May. Read the article for more details.

Another possible project for KC.....

According to the following two links:
Akan Satayev says: “we are in pre-production for the new movie, a historical epic drama,” and is said to be in talks with Kevin Costner to appear in it. The film will revolve around events that led to the formation of Kazakhstan and conflicts with Mongols in the 18th century. The film would be shot in Kazakhstan. No word on what character Kevin Costner might play.

At the following link is another article about it and a video trailer of Akan Satayev's movie, 'Strayed' which is the Kazakhstan entry into the foreign language Oscar this year:
