Kevin Costner‘s career has been in a holding pattern for the past few years and aside from helping to clean up the Gulf oil spill in 2010, he hasn’t done much good work lately. His career just might be on the upswing though, because Costner is rumored to have been cast in the new Superman reboot. Costner has reportedly won the role as Jonathan Kent, father to Superman himself, who will be played by Brit actor Henry Cavill.
There’s been so much speculation regarding the casting choices for the Zack Snyder-helmed reboot, though Lois Lane still hasn’t been cast despite the fact that Olivia Wilde, Kristen Stewart and Jessica Biel have all been considered for the role. We’re happy for Costner though, we’ve always been a fan of him in any role where an accent isn’t required.
