Kevin Costner outlines his political stances after learning the results of the “Yellowstone” election “I’m dissatisfied,”
On the Taylor Sheridan program, Costner portrays Montana rancher John Dutton, who ran for governor to save his land from developers. With the return of “Yellowstone,” Kevin Costner’s character, John Dutton, has been eagerly awaiting the outcome of the recent elections just like the show’s countless fans.
The process of Dutton getting sworn in as governor was shown in a teaser for the new season of the Taylor Sheridan drama, giving the seventh-generation rancher and his dynasty more power but keeping Dutton away from his beloved ranch.
Costner told the media, “I know how difficult it will be on him. “His commitment to the ranch comes before any desire to negotiate with others. That’s going to cause issues. He travels in a narrower lane than some people would want. He also won’t change.”
Since viewers have become completely engrossed in “Yellowstone,” executive producer Sheridan has devised the spinoffs “1883” and “1923,” both of which will be released in December. Though it’s possible that Costner’s on-screen persona is more interested in the public political sphere than he ever will be.
“No, I don’t think there’s any need for me to run, he continued, adding, “but I wish the people who did run had a greater vision and more morals about how they see the country progressing. I feel let down.”
The “Field of Dreams” star has backed a wide range of contenders and won’t declare a preference. Both Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney and 2020 Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg received his endorsement.
Cheney, a vocal opponent of former President Donald Trump, lost the August primary election and then ran for office as a Democrat during the midterm elections in an effort to prevent any supporters of Trump from succeeding.
Having supported every candidate, 67-year-old Costner has no regrets.
It doesn’t imply you’re finished or even incorrect just because you lose, he remarked. “I understood that (Cheney) was unlikely to be elected president. However, I wanted to express to her my gratitude for her courageous and sensible attitude as a citizen.”
Even a few of his “Yellowstone” admirers criticized Costner for his position. He admitted, “I didn’t really care how the cookie crumbled, that people that liked me now don’t like me. “That’s all right.”
His lengthy career has included contributions to some of the biggest movies in the business, such as “Dances With Wolves” and “The Bodyguard.” Huge Hollywood flops like “Waterworld” haven’t stopped him yet. Costner is not complacent with “Yellowstone’s” success.
I’m not naive, I know it’s a No. 1 show, he declared. “You are always pleased when something is well received. Thought I had some really excellent stuff, but they weren’t exactly hit. But you can’t let the ratings dictate your actions; you just have to be happy that there are viewers.”
Although he acknowledged that the show wasn’t initially a long-term goal, he is still along for the trip. Originally just planning to perform one season, he added, “but I’ve done this many.” “I put all of my effort into what I’m doing. But I’m just going to leave if I get the impression that something is wrong.”
“1883,” another “Yellowstone” prequel featuring Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, was published last year. “1923” will make its Paramount+ debut on Dec. 18th.
