The actor may be leaving Yellowstone, but it looks like you won’t miss him in cowboy boots.
Kevin Costner became a true superstar in the late 1980s after his performances in several critically acclaimed films such as The Untouchables and Field of Dreams. And his fan base doubled after his impressive performance in the popular movie, The Bodyguard.
But Costner has also starred in his share of classic Westerns. John Dutton’s character in his Yellowstone movie is certainly one of the best, but there are still plenty of other movies and even series you can watch right now if you think you’re not ready to part with Costner as the Western man.
5. Let It Go (2020)
Costner appears before his fans as a retired sheriff who, with his wife, is trying to save their grandson from a dangerous family. Although the film is considered to be in the neo-Western genre, it still has all the elements of Costner’s other traditional Western films.
4. The Hatfields and the McCoys (2012)
This is a miniseries that mainly focuses on the ongoing fight between the Hatfield and McCoy families. Kevin Costner plays one of the main characters, William “Devil Anse” Hatfield himself. The conflict that arises between these families makes for a tense drama well worth watching for any die-hard Costner fan.
3. Bandits (2019)
In this relatively new film, Kevin Costner plays a character named Frank Hammer who, along with his partner Manny Gault, tries to track down notorious criminals Bonnie and Clyde. This movie is considered one of the best Kevin Costner movies on Netflix, although it actually received a lot of mixed reviews.
2. A Perfect World (1993)
This movie from the early 90’s was directed by Clint Eastwood. Although it was not commercially successful, it is still considered one of his best works. The film stars Costner as the main character Butch Haynes, an escaped convict who takes a young boy hostage while fleeing the law.
1. The Open Range (2003)
This is the movie that Costner directed and starred in. The movie follows his character, Charlie White. He’s a farm laborer who, along with his partner, seeks justice and fights for revenge for the death of one of their men after he gets into trouble with a gang in a small town in Montana.
The film was a huge success at the box office and was well received by critics and audiences. And now it’s a must-see—especially if you still can’t contemplate Costner’s sudden exit from Yellowstone.
