Kevin Costner donates Ocean Therapy Technology

In other news, actor Kevin Costner donates 'Ocean Therapy' technology to help the oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico.

Could there be a happy Hollywood ending to the Gulf oil spill? Enter "Waterworld" star Kevin Costner, who has spent years and millions of dollars perfecting a device that cleans oil from seawater. British Petroleum - desperate for ideas - gave the okay to test six of Costner's gizmos this week, said BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles. Costner's high-speed centrifuge machine has a Los Angeles-perfect name: "Ocean Therapy." Placed on a barge, it sucks in large quantities of polluted water, separates out the oil and spits back 97% clean water. "It's like a big vacuum cleaner," said Costner's business partner, Louisiana trial lawyer John Houghtaling.

This is real, people.
