Val Kilmer is returning to one of his most iconic roles.The actor will bring back skilled fighter pilot (and beach volleyball player) Iceman for Top Gun: Maverick, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Tom Cruise is also returning for the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun, the film that launched the actor as a global star. In the original film, Iceman (real name: Tom Kazansky) was a rival to Maverick, uttering such classic lines as, “I don’t like you because you’re dangerous,” before the pair eventually became friends after earning each other’s grudging respect.
