Actor Kevin Costner joins Rich Eisen in studio for this week’s edition of The Rich Eisen Podcast.Costner, who has starred in a handful of the greatest sports movies of all-time, is back at tackling the sports genre again in his latest film “Draft Day.” The two-time Academy Award winner traded in his wooden bat and ball cap for a suit and seat in the front office in “Draft Day,” where he plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the fictional general manager of the Cleveland Browns. Shot partially on location at New York’s Radio City Music Hall during the 2013 NFL Draft, the film takes place over a 16-hour period during the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Costner talks with Rich about why he chose to do another sports movie and what it was that drew him to the project, which was directed by last week’s #REP guest, Ivan Reitman. Costner also shares some incredible stories along the way from sets of his previous films like “Bull Durham,” “Field of Dreams,” “Dances with Wolves” and more. It’s a fascinating listen with one of Hollywood’s finest actors, and be sure to check out “Draft Day” in theatres this Friday, April 11.
