Further Proof Kevin Costner LOVES Sports Movies: 'Draft Day'
He's in the front office of the Cleveland Browns. God help him. 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.
