Kevin Costner Celebrates Field of Dreams at Iconic Baseball Diamond

Field of Dreams Star Kevin Costner Celebrates 25th Anniversary at Iowa Festival

Originally posted 06/15/2014 12:45PM

Actor Colin Egglesfield wasn't in the classic baseball film Field of Dreams.

But if they built a screen in center field, he would come.

When Egglesfield heard about plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie's release during Father's Day weekend in Iowa, he flew to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, picked up his dad and drove six hours to the farm where it was filmed.

The Los Angeles-based Egglesfield, most recently seen on TV shows such as Rizzoli and Isles and The Client List, and his father reached rural Dyersville in time for a viewing of the movie on the outfield grass with scores of others, including star Kevin Costner.

That's when "Hey dad, you want to have a catch?" got them all, all over again.

Kevin Costner's Hatfield: Meet the Man Behind the Feud

Originally posted 05/30/2012 05:25PM

Fourteen million cable TV watchers can't be wrong. As the dust settles on the History Channel dramatization of the great American feud – the network's ratings record-setter Hatfields & McCoys airs its third and final installment Wednesday night – perhaps it's time to step back and look at the real-life patriarchs being portrayed by Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton.

The series tells the tale of West Virginia's Devil Anse Hatfield (Costner) and Kentucky's Randall McCoy (Paxton), close friends until the end of the Civil War. Once home, simmering tensions and resentments soon explode into an all-out rivalry that encompasses years of land disputes, kidnappings, even murder.

While artistic liberties were admittedly taken by the makers of the TV drama, several facts remain, according to a Blue Ridge Country magazine account. Devil Anse, whose full name was Capt. William Anderson Hatfield, was "tall, gray-eyed and bearded" and looked remarkably like Stonewall Jackson.

Hatfields & McCoys: Whose Side Are You On?

Originally posted 05/30/2012 11:00AM

Hatfields & McCoys, the History Channel's epic miniseries starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as the heads of the famous feuding families in the post-Civil War South, comes to an end Wednesday after the trilogy's first installment Monday registered nearly 14 million viewers – a ratings record for cable.

Costner and Paxton play close friends Devil Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy, whose personal conflict escalated into a decades-long rivalry between their families in Kentucky and West Virginia, and nearly led to war between the two states in the post-war years.

"Costner comes as close to a hero as this piece gets," opined the Los Angeles Times TV critic. "It is a truly brilliant performance, worthy of an Emmy for the pipe-smoking alone."

Meanwhile, The Washington Post said, "Paxton takes full advantage of his juicier role as Randall McCoy, a war camp survivor with a taste for vengeance and hellfire religion."

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Blade Runner actress Sean Young reportedly clashed with a security guard at the Governors Ball following Sunday night's Oscar ceremony and found herself ejected from the event.

After allegedly arguing with the guard over taking photos at the entrance to the ball – and not having a ticket for admittance – the actress, 52, was placed under citizens' arrest by another member of the security force and then removed by police and booked for battery, reports TMZ.

TMZ says Young slapped a guard who may have placed a hand on her.

Whitney Houston Remembered in Speeches and Song

Originally posted 02/18/2012 04:40PM

Whitney Houston's funeral brought the singer back to where it all began – the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., where she performed as a child in the choir.

On Saturday, those same walls were filled with music and stories of the star who touched so many lives in her 48 years.

With tears and laughter, BeBe Winans shared memories of sitting with Houston – in her closet – preparing for her first tour. "We weren't crowded," he joked of the space. "It was as big as this church."

Kevin Costner at Whitney Houston's Funeral: I Was 'Lucky' to Work with Her

Originally posted 02/18/2012 02:40PM

It was one of the most memorable love stories of the '90s: A former Secret Service agent, enlisted to look after a pop star thrust into danger in the spotlight, falls for the woman he's hired to protect.

But before The Bodyguard arrived in theaters in 1992, before the on-screen romance between Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner went down in cinema history, there was a simple question: Will it work?

Costner remembered that question at the late singer's funeral Saturday at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J. There was a time, after all, that Houston doubted herself, he recalled to mourners gathered at the church and fans watching via Livestream.

"The greatest pop star in the world didn't think she was good enough," the actor, 57, said of Houston, who died last week at 48. "There were a thousand things that seemed to her to be wrong."
