Everyone loves a good comeback, and Kevin Costner has been trying to stage his own for a while now. With this weekend's release of Costner's latest film "Draft Day," are audiences ready to forgive him for his past mistakes?
"Draft Day" puts Costner in the role of Sonny Weaver, a football general manager who trades his No. 1 pick on draft day for the chance to rebuild his struggling team from the ground up. The sports dramedy is one of Costner's first starring roles since his Hollywood comeback began in earnest with a supporting part in 2013's "Man of Steel."
Believe it or not, but there was a time when Costner was the undisputed king of Hollywood. A string of major critical and financial hits in the late '80s and early '90s -- including classics like “The Untouchables” (1987), “Field of Dreams” (1989), “Dances with Wolves” (1990), “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” (1991) “JFK” (1991), and “The Bodyguard” (1992) -- helped transform the actor into the biggest movie star of his day.
