Our very special guest this evening on the Busted Halo Show is two-time Academy Award winning actor/director, Kevin Costner.  Even though he just turned 60, he hasn’t slowed down—as evidenced by the fact that he is starring in two movies opening the next couple of weeks.  He’s here today to talk about the first, a film he also produced, called Black or White.  It’s the story of a custody battle over a young bi-racial girl. Her parents are out of the picture, but her grandparents are played by Oscar winners Octavia Spencer from “The Help” and Kevin Costner.   That’s the movie“Black or White,”  and we’re honored to have its producer and star with us… welcome to the Busted Halo Show, Kevin

Listen to Father Dave’s take here.
