Medical Office Liability and Guns: Part 2
At one point Kilmer seemed to confirm that there would be a role for the otherwise retired Gene Hackman in the sequel. Unfortunately, that turned out to be a spot of dream casting and was quickly retracted although it did at least give him an excellent excuse to crack an "I jumped the Top Gun " joke. Anthony Edwards isn't ruling out a Ghost Goose plot, but at least if we don't get that, we do have Miles Teller appearing as Goose's son Bradley Bradshaw.
One person who won't be back from the original is Michael Ironside as Lieutenant Commander Rick "Jester" Heatherly, with the actor putting it down to the fact that his relationship with producer Jerry Bruckheimer apparently isn't the greatest. As for Commander Mike "Viper" Metcalf, actor Tom Skerritt has yet to confirm whether the character will return in the sequel.
On Australia TV, Skerrit said: "I can't tell you anything about it, but there's a trailer out that is going to bring in a lot of ticket sales. It's almost a virtual-reality experience to watch the trailer. They're not talking much about it. Though the character does not appear in the trailer, some fans suspect the funeral scene depicted might be that of Viper.
Say it ain't so! After being rumoured for the role of Goose's son, Glen Powell did sign up for the movie in a mystery role.

Could he be Maverick's son? The sequel will also star Jennifer Connelly as the movie's female lead, playing a single mother who runs a local bar near the Navy base. She'll be joined by Jon Hamm and Ed Harris , although details on their roles are being kept a mystery.
And while we don't know who Hamm is playing, he's promised Digital Spy that the movie will be worth the wait : "They showed me 15 minutes of footage and I left the trailer with my chin on the ground. Based on the trailer alone, ScreenRant was able to deduce a few things, though. He is responsible for educating the new recruits and he is obviously accomplished given he has three stars oh his shirt.
Which, you know, isn't a whole lot to go on. The fist-pumping first movie saw the American pilots flip the bird at those pesky Russians, echoing the Cold War vibe of the '80s.
The world moved on But now it's seemingly moved back again, with Russian and American relations frosty once more. Could there be aerial combat between these two nations again? What we do know is that the plot will likely be an ode to the end of the days of dogfighting as drone warfare takes over.

This idea dates back to the late, original Top Gun director Tony Scott, who said: "This world fascinated me, because it's so different from what it was originally. But I don't want to do a remake. I don't want to do a reinvention. I want to do a new movie. It has to adapt," said Kosinski , as he teased a few details of his own. Back then, they hadn't been in any war for 15 or 20 years at that point.
Now, here in , the Navy's been at war for 20 years. There will still be a lot of "appropriate" action, though, according to Kosinski: "I certainly want to recreate the experience of that movie, which gives you a front-seat into the world of naval aviation and what it's like to be in a fighter jet. Yes — we will disagree on a whole range of issues — but to imply that somebody who is standing up against racism — is guilty of the same sort of hate speech as the people who we have allowed the hatred that we have seen in the last couple of weeks to fester, have a base, and be legitimised by so many people.
Instances such as these ones, of cross-party rationality, decency and goodwill, are essential if Australia is to maintain national agreement on the gun laws that have had such a dramatic impact on public safety here.
Just as important is agreement on complementary laws that relate to political donations and that affect the integrity of our political discourse and the viability of our firearms consensus.
