Top Gun: Maverick is bringing back Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer’s Iceman, but here are all the stars from 1986’s Top Gun who aren’t returning.
Tom Cruise returns to star in Top Gun: Maverick in 2021, but most of the original movie cast won’t be back – here is every character not returning after Top Gun. The long-awaited Top Gun sequel is among the most anticipated movies of 2021. The original 1986 movie is a classic 80s movie, and Cruise’s role as Pete’ Maverick’ Mitchell remains one of his most recognizable.
When Top Gun: Maverick finally returns audiences and Cruise to the familiar world of air combat, it will do so with an almost entirely new cast of characters. Cruise’s newest co-stars include well-known Hollywood stars like Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, and Jennifer Connelly, but Top Gun 2 also consists of fresher faces. The most significant addition to the cast is Miles Teller, as he’ll play Bradley’ Rooster’ Bradshaw, the son of Nick’ Goose’ Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards). The other new pilots Maverick will work with include Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Danny Ramirez, and Manny Jacinto.
