And then... nothing. "Tin Cup" was fun, "For The Love of the Game" had its moments, but it's been mostly miss for him since '94. It's easy to blame "Waterworld" for his slump but there's something bigger going on here. In 1993, Costner turned down the lead in "Tombstone" because he didn't like the direction of the movie. He wanted it more Earp-centric so he wound up making "Wyatt Earp" a year later. When you turn down the chance to work with Val Kilmer in what was probably the most underrated role of the last 30 years, you deserve what you get.
Really though, I've always been a Costner fan. I really hope his next role in the Superman reboot "Man of Steel" is his ticket back to Hollywood.
