After The Media Accused Kevin Costner Of Nepotism For Casting His Son, Fans Angrily Jumped To His Defense

Film News

Kevin Costner is set to return to the big screen this summer with the first chapter of his Horizon: An American Saga film series. The upcoming films represent the realization of a dream for the actor/director, as he’s long been itching to tell this story. What seemingly makes that even sweeter for the star is that the production is a bit of a family affair for him. Costner cast his 15-year-old son, Hayes Logan Costner, to join the massive ensemble. That reveal, which came via a post Kevin shared months ago, has since been met with a considerable amount of backlash. The media and more have made mention of nepotism while making their case. However, a sum of Costner’s fans have since (somewhat angrily) jumped to his defense.

The 69-year-old filmmaker discussed the casting during a recent interview with The Today Show. Kevin Costner seems to be a proud papa and had nothing but sweet sentiments to share about his teenage son. Additionally, he also addressed the fact that there are plenty of other actors who could’ve filled the role:

He’s a beautiful boy, and he’s quiet. And I have not shoved my children into the business. I realize there’s so many young actors out there that would just kill to be in this movie, and I don’t want to take those parts away from them just cause I can place my own children in. But, in this sense, since it was a smaller part, I selfishly wanted him with me for the week, two weeks, he was with me. And we would drive to the set every day and he would whisper. He didn’t have a lot of experience, but he’s really beautiful in the movie.
