Because Kevin Costner is far too old to really play any sort of athlete, except for maybe in a Tin Cup sequel, his foray into sports films is a little different these days. Rather than play a star pitcher, or sailing captain, or baseball player, or baseball player, or baseball player, he has to play a general manager or coach, or something lame like that.

Speaking of lame, Draft Day has him general managing the Cleveland Browns, which is sort of like torture porn to fans of sports films. So take this football equivalent of Saw, which, of course, is drafting the 28 year-old Brandon Weedon with your first round pick.

The scariest part is that actually happened.

Winning an Emmy doesn’t mean you can just go around making terrible decisions without consequence, like growing a soul patch or working with McG. Kevin Costner did not get this memo.

THR reports the jazzy hepcat has signed on for an untitled Secret Service thriller with the This Means War director. Costner will once again play a former Secret Service agent, though this time he will not go on to protect and boink a pop starlet. Instead, he will discover he’s terminally ill but called back into service in exchange for a miracle drug that will save his life. This cost, one last job. He soon finds himself hallucinating from the experimental treatment while trying to accomplish his mission and reconnect with his family. It’s a shame Keifer Sutherland wasn’t up for the part. He has experience playing an agent/family man and he’s got the hallucinating part down pat.

The nation — no, Planet Earth — was rocked last week by the news that John Travoltamight not be straight. As you are surely aware, the story broke when a masseur filed a lawsuit claiming Travolta offered sex in exchange for cash and fondled the man’s penis and scrotum. Fuel was added to the fire hours later when a second masseur came forward claiming that Travolta touched his anus. The case is pending, and the first masseur has already been dropped by his attorney after it was discovered that Travolta was out of town on the date the alleged incident supposedly took place.

Maybe it’s all BS. However if there is a takeaway in all of this, it is that it’s probably a good idea to use Purell after shaking hands with John Travolta. Just to be safe. Every job has its hazards as I’m sure massage professionals are well aware. John Travolta isn’t the first celebrity to be wrapped up in a sex scandal with a professional body rubber. In fact, here are five notable men who have rubbed a massage therapist the wrong way.

Kevin Costner

Kevin Costner (who takes awesome pictures) found himself in trouble in 2006 after receiving a massage at the Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland. The masseuse alleges that Costner performed a solo sex act while in her presence. She alleged that he “kept putting his hand underneath his towel’, and when she began to massage his head he “grabbed her wrist forcefully, whipped off his towel and exposed himself’. The case went away when the woman received an out-of-court settlement.

Al Gore

Though she never named him by name, a Portland massage therapist called her friend hours after being sexually-assaulted by “someone in the higher ups.” It was actually the friend of the victim who alleged the attacker was Al Gore. She put two and two together when her friend freaked out upon the news Gore was returning to Portland years later. “She freaked and split. She said her predator was back and coming to town. She up and left,” said Donna Burleigh. “She said it was a high authority person who has a lot of power. She was scared of him.” Well, yeah. He invented the Internet. Last thing she wants is Anonymous on her ass.

Whitney Houston is dead. The world-famous singer and actress passed away at the Beverly Hilton hotel at the age of 48, representative Kristen Foster confirmed Saturday evening. The cause of death is unknown at this time, but given her well-documented battles with drug addiction, I doubt it was ninjas.

While best known for her singing career, Houston was also famous for her acting work in films such as The Bodyguard and Waiting to Exhale. According to CNN, she was set to appear in an upcoming remake of Sparkle, which would have been her first movie role since 1996.

R.I.P.

Kevin Costner surprised us all last week when he dropped out of Qeuntin Tarantino’s Django Unchained due to a “schedule conflict.” However, a role in a Tarantino film could be just what Costner needs to revitalize his career. So why would he pass on it? It’s also strange because he was attached for two months before the “schedule conflict” arose.

As of right now, the truth remains a mystery but we believe the reasons outlined below are all plausible.

Kevin Costner Is No Longer The Slavemaster In Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kevin-costner-is-no-longer-the-slavemaster-in-tarantinos-django-unchained/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kevin-costner-is-no-longer-the-slavemaster-in-tarantinos-django-unchained/#comments Fri, 16 Sep 2011 17:07:56 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=228775 He may have walked away due to his commitment to a History Channel mini-series.

In news that is both unfortunate and perplexing, Kevin Costner has passed on the Django Unchained role due to scheduling conflicts. THis is unfortunate because a) he seemed to be an inspired choice for the role and would have taken it in an interesting direction, and b) because it could have given his career a renaissance a la Travolta in Pulp Fiction. It’s perplexing because he’s been attached to the role for about two months, so it seems a little late in the game to cite scheduling conflicts.

So, with filming to begin in November, the hunt is on for a new mean slave-trainer. I don’t know why, but Donald Sutherland really jumps out at me for this role. So, QT, if you’re reading this (and I’m absolutely positive you are), try Sutherland. Donald or Kiefer, actually. Or maybe a skinny John C. Reilly. There was a time when he did drama, you know.

Bill Paxton And Kevin Costner Cast In Same Film To Confuse Audiences http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bill-paxton-and-kevin-costner-cast-in-same-film-to-confuse-audiences/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bill-paxton-and-kevin-costner-cast-in-same-film-to-confuse-audiences/#comments Tue, 16 Aug 2011 21:57:12 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=224729 If one shoots the other, it's technically suicide.

The two doppelgangers will star in Hatfields and McCoys as the patriarchs of the legendary feuding families. Costner will play Anse Hatfield, while Paxton plays Randall McCoy. The story behind the warring families is as such: The two men came home from the Civil War to set up right across the river from each other, one in Kentucky, and one in West Virginia. From that point on, they just flat-out rubbed each other the wrong way, initiating another civil war of sorts that would press on for decades, long after the death of the two men.

If you thought Costner’s accent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was bad, wait and see what he has in store for Appalachian-speak. Similarly, I’m really looking forward to seeing Bill Paxton eating a squirrel.

The film will be directed by Kevin Reynolds, who directed the fantastic Red Dawn, so don’t be surprised if this film features Harry Dean Stanton being executed or C. Thomas Howell exploding. Actually, both of those events would still surprise me.

Quentin Tarantino‘s casting for Django Unchained is getting random even by QT’s standards. In addition to Tarantino rookies Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx, Kevin Costner is in talks with producers to play a slave trainer under the employ of DiCaprio’s Calvin Candie. Also, Samuel L. Jackson will be starring in the film because, duh.

Sadly, I thought that “henchman” would mean some generic bad guy along the lines of the F.O.O.T. Soldiers in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I mean, he played a dead body in The Big Chill, so he’s clearly not in acting for the glory.

Time has shown that it’s not wise to second-guess Tarantino’s casting choices, as no one would have answered “John Travolta” when asked who the best choice to play a hit man would be for Pulp Fiction. This news leaves Django‘s wife, Broomhilda, as the one big outstanding role. It sounds like Kerry Washington is no longer in the running, so expect maybe Harvey Keitel or Tim Roth to step up. (Deadline)

If you build a Superman reboot, Kevin Costner will come. Specifically, he’ll come on board as Clark Kent’s dad for Zack Snyder‘s Superman: Man of Steel.

It’s being reported that Costner has been officially cast as Jonathan “Dadman” Kent, opposite Diane Lane as Martha Kent, along with Britishy Brit Henry Cavill as the cape-wearing flying dude himself. Superman: Man of Steel has even been added to Costner’s Wikipedia filmography, and the Wikipedia is always right, all the time.

The casting move gives the superhero action film broader appeal. Even though this movie will undoubtedly be aimed at precious teens and young adults, old folk money is still technically considered legal tender in America.

Warner Bros. is currently hoping to POW this into theaters December 2012. (Deadline)

Here’s a big rumor involving casting for Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman reboot: America’s Oil Man Kevin Costner is reportedly being courted for a “key role.” No word on what this role could be, but I don’t think Lois Lane has been cast yet.

Less amusing speculation is that he would be playing a bad guy as a follow-up to his decently-reviewed performance in the serial killer thriller Mr. Brooks. I’m not too hot on my Superman villains, but isn’t Parasite kind of a doughy white guy? And besides, who better to play someone who feeds off the talents of others than Kevin Costner (sorry, I was up for the role of Elliot Ness in The Untouchables and I still haven’t gotten over it)? We’ll see if this turns out to be anything other than an empty rumor. I personally think he’d be a better fit for the inevitable Namor: The Sub-Mariner movie. (The Playlist)
