Val Kilmer officially returning to “Top Gun” sequel to reprise his role as the Iceman…

This is great news and it’s just another reason to get all excited for the “Top Gun” sequel. Iceman is coming back! Which is really cool ’cause this movie wouldn’t work without the Iceman.

“Top Gun: Maverick” has already started filming this summer and now the casting has just started.

So far Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are the only two stars confirmed for the sequel. I’m sure the film makers will sign more to the film so we’ll have to wait and see. Will Kelly McGillis return as Charlie Blackwood who played Maverick’s lover in the first one? I think there’s a pretty good chance we’ll see her too. Only thing though, Kelly is 60 years old now so I’m not sure a love story continuing between her and Maverick would work. I’m sure they’re gonna get Maverick a new love interest in the new movie, a younger female, of course but I’m sure Kelly will be back.

I think it’s a possibility this film could be a full on reunion. Everyone from the first movie could be coming back including Tom Skerritt as Viper.

Of course, the only character that can’t be returning to the new movie is obviously Goose ’cause you all know what happened to him in the first movie, right? It would be cool if Anthony Edwards could return but it wouldn’t work. I’m sure there’ll be some Goose flashbacks and I’m sure the film will honor Goose in some way by having someone else to play piano to sing “Great Balls of Fire” or “You Lost that Loving Feeling”.

Back to Val Kilmer… it’s gonna be interesting, though. I haven’t seen Val Kilmer in a new movie in many years. I think Kilmer is a phenomenal actor and he has starred in many great films in the 80’s and 90’s. I think the reason we haven’t seen much of Val lately is ’cause he has been having health problems, lately, I think? Looks like he’s all better now.

Can’t wait to see who the rest of the cast will be. There will be some familiar faces from the first movie and I’m sure they will bring in some new actors as well. I’m sure they’ll find Maverick a new love interest, a new female and younger. You know how all Tom Cruise movies are. He always have a young hot looking love interest in his movies. They’ll do the same with this one as well. Anyway, it’s gonna be really cool to see Val and Tom reunite ’cause they haven’t starred in a movie together ever since the first Top Gun movie was released in 1986.

Will Forte’s popular character on SNL, “MacGruber” is coming to theaters near you. Of course, Will Forte will be playing MacGruber, which is a parody of the classic TV series, MacGyver, obviously. Actors Val Kilmer, and Ryan Phillipe are in talks to join the cast of the film.

It is no secret that Hollywood makes films adapted from SNL characters over the years. With films such as “The Blues Brothers”, “Wayne’s World”, “Coneheads”, and the two Roxbury brothers in “Night at the Roxbury” that starred Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan, the two guys that bop their head to the “What Is Love” song.

Very cool. I like MacGruber, funny stuff. The film ought to be funny too if they do it right.

It’s about time Kilmer’s got a good role! He’s still doing movies but he’s been out of the spotlight for a while, seems like no one cares for Kilmer these days. He was pretty popular back in the 80’s and 90’s.
