LOS ANGELES, CA, October 14, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — A petition started to make the rounds a couple of months ago in the Costner Fandom World as fans are coming together to urge him to consider doing a movie with a holiday theme. This petition is starting to blow up with hundreds of signatures in the last 30 days.
The petition is not demanding and seems to be a love request from his fans to fill that special season of the year which Costner currently has left open. During an online discussion on a Costner Facebook site, fans realized that they have no films starring their beloved actor during what has now become its own genre, holiday film season.
“If people list ‘Die Hard’ or ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ as a favorite holiday film, then we want one starring Kevin Costner.” states Petition Owner, Kay Oliver. “I admit another fan came up with the idea of a petition, and I thought why not? Costner is a man who makes films for his fans. Why not share with him one we would like to see?”
With over 85,000 Facebooks hearts and likes, recent TikTok videos with more than 4,200 hearts, and 2,800 signatures on the petition and growing makes the count nearly 100,000 fans raising their voices in unison in hopes of hearing Kevin say he will consider the option.
There is one caveat to the request, “Fans are asking that his character not die,” comments Oliver. “When that first surfaced it made me laugh, but I get it. They don’t want to continue to see their favorite man dying.”
Fans coming together to support a celebrity is now trending like never before. Many fans came together years ago in support of Robert Downey, Jr. back in 1999 and it was the start of something bigger to come. Today we see Britney Spears fans support, and Taylor Swift fan base voicing encouragement. We even give them trendy names like “Swifties.”
Costner Fandom is bursting onto the scene with his starring role in Yellowstone as John Dutton and fans are uniting by signing and sharing the Change.org petition across all of social media.

ABOUT KEVIN COSTNER: While enrolled at California State University, Fullerton, where he majored in business, Kevin decided to take acting lessons. He graduated with a business degree in 1978 and married his college sweetheart, Cindy Costner. He initially took a marketing job in Orange County, California.
Everything changed for him when he met Richard Burton on a flight from Mexico. Burton advised him to go completely into acting if that is what he really wanted. Kevin took that advice. His first role was in a soft-core sex film that was shot in 1978, an experience he did not wish to repeat. He waited for a real break which came in 1983 on the set of “The Big Chill.” However, most of his scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. His real big break came with Lawrence Kasden, Director of “The Big Chill” remembered Kevin and casted him in his film “Silverado” in 1985. Since then, this Oscar winning actor’s career took off with films like “Dances with Wolves,” “No Way Out,” and “The Bodyguard.”
Most recently Kevin Costner appears in the new film “Let Him Go,” released in 2020, and the popular TV series “Yellowstone,” as John Dutton.
