M. Night Shyamalan briefly considered Kevin Costner for the lead part in "Lady in the Water," but he ended up going with Paul Giamatti instead.
Wow. I was surprised that anybody other than Costner himself was considering Costner for movie roles anymore. Well, Costner only considers himself when he's not watching "Field of Dreams," and patting himself on the back with his diamond plated back patter.
However, to his credit, the Waterworld show at Universal Studios is pretty cool. And to think, it only took a multi-million dollar flop to make sure that that attraction got made. God bless him!
