Luke Wilson was thrilled to work with Kevin Costner on a big Western movie called Horizon: An American Saga. Costner, who’s 69, not only acted in the film but also produced and directed it. The movie is split into two parts and tells the story of the American West before and after the Civil War.

Wilson, who’s 52, is part of the cast along with other actors like Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, and Abbey Lee. He was really excited to be in the movie, especially because Costner was involved in it.

“It was amazing,” Wilson says. “I spent a year working on the first two movies, where my character appears. It’s a huge Western film that follows different stories of soldiers, Native Americans, and pioneers heading west. I play a part in the wagon train storyline.”

The movie is set to release in two parts, with the first coming out on June 28 and the second on August 16. Wilson says it’s top-notch filmmaking and he’s impressed with Costner’s work.

“For me, working with Kevin Costner was a dream come true. I’ve always been a big fan of his,” Wilson explains. “There are other actors from the ’70s era that I’ve worked with and admired, but Costner was someone I always looked up to. I’ve watched his movies since I was young.”

Wilson admits he was a bit starstruck when he first met Costner on set. “I’d be standing right in front of him, and he’d ask me something, but I’d just be staring at him. I was so in awe,” he says with a laugh. “But seeing how hard he works, even at his age, was really inspiring.”

Working with Costner motivated Wilson to pursue projects he’s passionate about, like his new partnership with Miller Lite for their All Stars campaign. The campaign features famous athletes like David Ortiz and Mia Hamm.

“It was a fun project to be a part of,” Wilson says. “I grew up watching these ads, so being involved in one was cool. Plus, being a Miller Lite fan and the son of a Red Sox fan made it even more special.”

Wilson believes Miller Lite’s ads have created a sense of humor and goodwill around the brand. “They’ve become part of American culture,” he says. “And that’s why I think the advertising is so clever – it makes you think, ‘Yeah, Miller Lite is a great beer.'”
