On Tuesday, Actor Kevin Costner was a guest on Larry King Live, talking with King about the Gulf oil spill and his dealings with BP, who contracted 32 oil spill cleanup machines from Costner's business.

Costner told King that the machine makes it possible to tackle the Gulf oil spill without dispersants or chemicals. When King asked Costner if "he was scientifically knowledgeable," Costner replied, "No. I've always been a bit of a dreamer. I'm a total 'what if?' guy. And I really enjoy being in a room with really smart people." He then goes on to describe how 20 of the machines they designed would have cleaned up the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 5 days.
