Handsome, fit, and extremely likable, Kevin Costner came out of nowhere (he played thecorpse being dressed at the start of "The Big Chill'') to become a huge star of the 1980's.

His defining role was in "Field of Dreams." Kevin Costner won the Best Director Oscar for "Dances with Wolves." His other notable films include: "No Way Out," "Bull Durham," "JFK," and "Thirteen Days."

When Kevin Costner's "Waterworld" was released, having cost about $200 million to make, critics lined up to predict that the film would fail and Costner's career falter. Neither event occured, and eventually Hollywood insiders claimed that the pricey "Waterworld" would eventually turn a modest profit.

Kevin Costner's recent credits include: "3000 Miles to Graceland," "Dragon Fly," and "Open Range." In 2004, watch for Kevin in "The Upside of Anger." More
