, will on Monday have his own star on Los Angeles' Walk of Fame. Costner, 48, will be present to see his star placed into the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard opposite the Kodak Theatre, which hosts the Oscars awards ceremony.

The actor, protagonist of films such as The Untouchables (1987) and JFK (1991), recently announced his engagement to Christine Baumgartner. Costner directs and stars in his latest film, which opens Friday at North American cinemas.

The first film he directed, Dances with Wolves (1990), brought seven of his 12 Oscar nominations, including for best film and best director. Costner has had a couple of stagnant periods in his career following poor reviews of his science fiction epic Waterworld (1995) and Message in a Bottle (1999), both starring the actor.
