What is Kevin Costner working on now?

Costner is currently starring as the billionaire rancher, John Dutton, in the Paramount network show, Yellowstone. The show has been a big hit for the network. Season two just premiered earlier this month, and Yellowstone has already been confirmed for season three.

TV is a relatively new experience for Costner since most of his career has been in movies. But fans love the modern-day western show. Yellowstone is about a powerful family of ranchers, fighting to protect their land and legacy- which just happens to border Yellowstone Park.

When asked by CBS This Morning, why he thought it was important to dramatize the struggles of ranchers, Costner said: “I didn’t think of it that way. I tried to put the audience on my shoulder the first time I read the script. You go to the TV, you go to the movies for something. When the lights go out, you want to just be transported. And so, when I read a script, I feel myself being transported – suddenly we’re in Bitterroot Valley, the same valley that Lewis & Clark went down.”

That’s what makes any Costner film or show entertaining. They transport you to another world and allow you to live another life in your imagination. As long as Hollywood keeps making these types of stories, fans will keep coming for the show, and the actors, like Costner, will continue to make millions.

Kevin Costner and Donald Trump

Costner had accused the Trump administration of fostering a harmful political environment, saying that he is “not recognizing America right now.” Costner shifted toward the Democratic Party, appeared on ABC’s “The View” to discuss his new television series “Yellowstone” on the Paramount network.

During the interview, co-host Joy Behar asked Costner for his thoughts on the state of the country and the Trump administration’s practice of separating immigrant children from their parents when families are apprehended for crossing the border illegally. He continued to attack the Trump administration for what he described as a toxic environment.

“I’m not recognizing America right now,” Costner said. “I don’t recognize its voice. I don’t recognize any individual statements. I feel people going with the flow, and there are people right in the middle. We’re in a really weird spot, and it takes a high level of compassion, empathy, and intelligence to work our way out of this.”

He went on to criticizing Trumps’ administration for separating families at the border without a plan, asking whether anyone can imagine the terror of the children not being able to speak English. He said “We have to do better. We’ve been about more. We can be about more, and right now we are acting really small,”

This is not the first time that Costner has taken an apparent swipe at Trump. In April 2016, Costner appeared to criticize Trump, saying that he did not think the presidential campaign was as “entertaining” as everyone else.

“I don’t,” Costner said. “No, I find it embarrassing. I find it highly immature. I think America is really teetering at a low point with the way we talk to each other.” “I won’t even have dinner with the way people talk,” he added. “Where are our big ideas? There’s dialogue right now that’s shameful.”
