It's like wtf, why didn't they get Pacino for Ness or someone badass at the time? WHAT ABOUT TOMMY LEE JONES? Jeeze. So many great actors and Costner gets the part.
If you like backgrounds filled with static frozen grain patterns due to dnr.

Ness is supposed to start off naive and fresh and unable to understand the corruption around him and how to deal with it and Malone teaches him the ropes, Ness isn't supposed to be a badass thats Malone played by Connery.

Costner was able to pull the role off and you have to remember he had no baggage back then and was an upcoming star and i also doubt Pacino being right for the role ( too old for the part in 1987 among other problems )

At least Paramount did not slap a Sapphire Series label on that wax fest.
