'Dances with Wolves' Oscar winner sits down for a wide-ranging chat
LONDON, ENGLAND. Kevin Costner has powers. Eerie powers.
It's October 2012 and a group of reporters is sitting huddle in a pub across the street from both London's Liverpool Station and the building where "Jack Ryan" (later to be "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit") is shooting a scene. Because it's meant to be Moscow, it's appropriate how chilly it is, but the steady rain has left us unable to witness any filming with our own eyes.
Costner, who plays Jack Ryan's CIA mentor William Harper, isn't in the scene and he wasn't supposed to be on set.
However, graciously eager to chat, Costner has shown up on his off-day and the second he gets out of his car, the rain stops.
The sun comes out for Kevin Costner.
"I tell ya, it's one of those universal things sometimes when [the sun] comes out, I think everybody sometimes feels good," Costner says, sitting down. "That's one of the things, there's like universal things, right, with people? Like even like a dick in life, even a really bad guy, I always think that even a bad guy recognizes a good idea. They might stay there and go, "That's a f***ing really good idea," but they know it when they hear it, you know what I mean? There's just something. A good idea is something like an emotion, you just can't keep it in. 'Mmm, that's a good idea, I really like that!'"
