These days, Kevin Costner is more untouchable than Eliot Ness!
The veteran actor just scored a juicy role in the upcoming Jack Ryan prequel directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Chris Pine as our heroic young spy!
Details are sparse, but Costner's character is an apparent mentor figure akin to
Darth Vader's James Earl Jones' Admiral Greer in the three '90s adaptations of those fabulous Tom Clancy novels!
Between this new gig, his sweet stint in Man of Steel, and his Emmy nominated performance in television's hugely popular Hatfields & McCoys — we're going to go out on a limb and call this a pretty good year for KevCo!
Continue to make us proud!
