I tried watching Top Gun a few months ago and turned it off when Cruise introduced himself as "Maverick" at the bar.

"Because I was inverted."

*Room laughs*

Kilmer will be fine for the film if it ever gets made. I'm a huge Top Gun fan. If the story is there, it'll work. I have no doubt Cruise and Kilmer will be good in it.

I'm just thankful they are not trying to do another Iron Eagle. They should have stopped after 1...

I think that was a typo. You probably meant to say "It there are enough cool action scenes, people will go see it."

I'm going to a con in October where Kilmer will be attending. Definitely having him sign my Tombstone blu-ray. That's not quite relevant, but I thought I'd share.

His problem now is the opposite of what it used to be: he needs to GAIN some weight. Post-cancer Val is not a healthy looking Val.



I think I saw a picture of him looking somewhat healthier a little more recently. He has to be feeling pretty good if he's down to visit cons.

Edit #2187:
He looks pretty good here at this picture from the convention's page.
