Luc Besson's Taken turned Liam Neeson into the action hero we all know and love today, but can he do the same for Kevin Costner?
The 57-year-old has been cast in Besson's next high-octane action thriller as a dying secret service agent who is offered a life-saving drug if he completes one last mission. The McG directed film followers Costner “trying to juggle his family, his mission, and the drug’s hallucinatory side-effects.”
The Waterworld star is no stranger to action, so we have no doubt he can pull this role off with ease. In fact, he's already immersing himself in the genre as we speak!
Following his Emmy win for Hatfields & McCoys, he began shooting scenes opposite Chris Pine in the next Jack Ryan movie!
We think Sylvester Stallone may have just found another recruit for his Expendable army of aging action stars!

Wow! They really were casting up until the last minute, weren't they?!
Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner were only just added to the Kenneth Branagh-directed Jack Ryan project alongside new lead Chris Pine earlier in the month, yet all three gents are apparently well at work on the prequel for the Tom Clancy hero!
Ch-ch-check out shots of the actors portraying the young, motorcycle-riding spy and his mentor (above)!
Both so badass - AND SEXY!
Keira is seriously one lucky lady to have them both saving her for imminent danger!
We'll be curious to see what other action-hijinks will be going down on this set!

Looks like Ryan Seacrest has finally sold his Hollywood Hills mansion that he put on the market back in April!
The house ended up going for $11 million, after it was listed for $12.9 million!
The 8,000 square foot house comes with a tennis court, guest house, wine cellar, screening room and even a detached nightclub!!
Not a bad deal at all!
Ryan’s old pad was originally Kevin Costner’s…and the owner before him?? Richard Dreyfuss!
As for Seacrest’s new digs? He and longtime girlfriend Julianne Hough are shacking up in his new $37 million mansion that he bought off Ellen DeGeneres, back in May!
Talk about an UPGRADE! LOLz!

Stephen Baldwin was thrown in cuffs yesterday after speeding through the Big Apple!
Cops pulled him over to write him a ticket but hauled his Baldwinian butt off to jail after learning their Usual Suspect carried no valid license to drive!
Bad move, Stevie!!
The youngest Baldwin was booked as an
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!
Kevin Costner and sports movies go together like pro athletes and
paternity tests balls.
And it's been way too long since he's made one.
The actor, who just received an Emmy nomination for his work in the miniseries Hatfields & McCoys, is in talks to star in the sports biopic McFarland.
The movie's titular coach is famous for taking a poor Southern California Hispanic neighborhood's track team to glory.
The film could mark
This is a first!
Santa Barbara resident Charles Grimm filed a complaint with the county against Kevin Costner because the high-profile actor's unkempt bush is obstructing Grimm's ocean view!!
Go back and read that sentence again. We'll wait.
Yup, this is real news, folks!
We don't know exactly how unruly the Tin Cup star's bush is — nor whether he usually asks his beautiful wife Christine Baumgartner with help trimming the hedges — we just know that Mizter Grimm misses his ocean view!!
Do U think Kevin should fight back like he did against Stephen Baldwin, to ensure his bush can grow as wild as he wants???
Or should he acquiesce and
shave trim the whole thing?
