In this unedited interview for Austin’s KVUE-TV, Roy Faires sits down with actor Kevin Costner to talk about his latest film, Bull Durham (1988). The film, also starring Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon, was partly shot in Arlington, including scenes at Six Flags Over Texas. Costner looks back at his character in Fandango (1985), which was also filmed in Texas. He then discusses his approach to building an audience and how the film challenged him as an actor. Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
