Kevin Costner Filmography
Kevin Costner is one of the most decorated and illustrious American actors who has in his kitty two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and one Emmy Award. Interestingly, Costner was to make his debut in ‘Sizzle Beach, USA’ but due to delay in release, he was first seen in the film ‘The Touch’. A few supporting roles followed before Costner found his breakthrough in Lawrence Kasdan’s ‘Silverado’.
Going up the ladder, Costner’s found his career’s magnum opus with ‘The Untouchables’. His role of federal agent Eliot Ness marked as the turning point of his career and served as an impetus for his future filmography that had him star as Crash Davis in ‘Bull Durham’, Ray Kinsella in ‘Field of Dreams’, Lt. John J. Dunbar in ‘Dances with Wolves’ (for which he won Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture), Jim Garrison in ‘JFK’, Robin Hood in ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’, Frank Farmer in ‘The Bodyguard’, and so on.
Nevertheless, Costner’s successful career graph saw a few setbacks and flops as well. ‘Draft Day’, ‘3 Days to Kill’ and ‘Jack Ryan’ were major box office duds.
