Hatfields & McCoys Might Be a Hit, but Costner is Too Busy to Notice

Hatfields & McCoys, the History Channel’s miniseries about the long-standing feud between the two families, has turned out to be a pretty big hit, with kudos coming in from all angles. Bill Paxton, Tom Berenger, and Kevin Costner star in the program, all of whom should be quite pleased with the results. If Twitter reactions are to be believed, there are quite a few individuals out there who simply cannot get enough of the historical drama.

What does Kevin Costner think of the miniseries’ sudden popularity? Nobody seems to know. Although producers have attempted to reach out to the “Field of Dreams” actor, he’s yet to make contact. The reason: Costner is currently diving off the coast of Africa in search of treasure. According to the Los Angeles Times, Costner owns a company that frequently embarks on such worldly expeditions, which effectively makes the guy a parttime Indiana Jones clone. Somebody should make a documentary about this post-haste.

Thinkfactory Media CEO Leslie Greif, the man responsible for bringing the tale to life on the small screen, has attempted to congratulate the star on his recent success, though he’s having some difficulty doing so. Apparently cell phone reception at the bottom of the ocean is a little spotty in that part of the world.

“No one can reach him. We’re all desperate to reach him. He has no idea what’s going on,” Greif explained. “He’s off the coast of Africa somewhere. He has a company that goes on explorations, and he’s on a treasure dive in parts unknown. He’s diving for treasure.”

Someone should tell him he’s looking in the wrong place for dry land.

When he isn’t trotting the globe in search of riches or lending his talents to the art of filmed entertainment, the “Bull Durham” alumni can be found rocking out with his band Kevin Costner and the Modern West. From what I understand, they’re not half bad. Have a listen below.

If you’re one of the many who missed the “Hatfields & McCoys” miniseries, fear not: You can always head down to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and partake in the Hatfield-McCoy Dinner Feud. Choose your table carefully.

Things I learned from Hatfields & McCoys:Forgive before it snowballs.Watch your back.Trust with care.Target practice (just in case).

I bet Patrick Swayze’s ghost is so heartbroken that he can’t be part of the Hatfields & McCoys miniseries.

    I enjoyed the Hatfields & McCoys. I like the way the elder Hatfield depended on his gut instincts,and McCoy trusted his faith in God. When it was over McCoy lost his faith,Hatfield found faith in God. I wonder where the truth lies?

    GREAT mini-series. Sad it’s over. Hope History Channel does more work of this calibre. I will buy the DVD set.

  • CGarner

    I thought it was a well done series it kept me excited to see the next nights episode. The events were very tragic and moving to me I am a mother of four and the thought of my kids being killed like that is the worst nightmare a mother could go have. It is alot better than the other shows that are on now! I will by the DVD when it comes out.

    Damn, that song was pretty good. Kevin Costner may be a better musician than an actor.

    LOVED the mini series Hatfields and McCoys!! I wish television could be this good all the time!!

  • Joyce

    What a fantastic mini-series. I hated to see it end. Kevin Costner and the rest outdid themselves. I also would like to have seen more at the end of what happened to the families. Wish it was a lot longer. TV will be boring tonight.

    Where was AA and Al-

    Anon when you could have used them

  • Janet

    My husband and I really enjoyed this mini series. We have it recorded so we can watch it again as usually it takes 2 or 3 times before you catch everything being said and done. It is a great example of how anger and jealousy can fuel the fire of hatred way past the point of being ridiculous!
