That's old enough.
I'll tell ya....Costner has made some great films......Silverado, The Big Chill, The Untouchables, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, Dances With Wolves, Revenge, A Perfect World, Tin Cup, Open Range, Thirteen Days, JFK.
Also some duds, The Postman, Waterworld, Wyatt Earp (even though he wasn't bad as Wyatt though) 3000 Miles to Graceland.....
The man is only 56 years old also and it seems like he has been around forever.
Solid casting though if he winds up being Jonathan "Pa" Kent though.
