Tom Cruise has been a heavyweight in Hollywood for nearly four decades now, starting with early work as strangers And the money color To his continuing career as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible Movies. Over the past several months, Cruz has been impressive on the big screen with his revenge on Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick, the actor’s film lit up green only by calling Paramount Pictures and telling the studio he was doing it. Outside the return of Val Kilmer as Tom “Snowman” Kazansky, dissidentThe cast was made up of new faces, and I had the pleasure of learning from three of the cast about their favorite memories of working with the icon in the sequel.
Top Gun: Maverick I headed to digital platforms recently, and to celebrate, I spoke with Charles Parnell, who plays RADM Solomon “Warlock” Bates, the commander of the Naval Aviation Combat Development Center and someone who goes back to back with Pete Mitchell. Parnell chose to remember the first time he met Tom Cruise, and began with the following:
I can only imagine how surprised Charles Parnell was when he learned that Tom Cruise didn’t just appear in Top Gun: Maverick It was set on a day when he was not expected to come, but it also wasn’t just a quick visit; He came to act his scene. Parnell then described his first interaction with Cruise already, and also praised his co-star for how he brightened the cast and crew’s days. In Parnell’s words:
Next up is Danny Ramirez, who played LT Mickey “Fanboy” Garcia, and WSO in LT Reuben’s “Payback” by Jay Ellis. For his favorite Tom Cruise memory, Ramirez also opted for an early interaction with the actor who was said to have paid $12.5 million for that movie, along with everything that comes from the back of his deal. However, this moment also doubled as a way to remind Ramirez that Cruz is just as human as the rest of us, and he’s a solid one for everyone’s success in Basic Produce. As Ramirez explained:
Finally, we have Greg “Tarzan” Davis, who played LT Javy “Coyote” Machado and, like Danny Ramirez, had some crazy aerial training. Top Gun: Maverick. Davis fondly remembered hearing Tom Cruise talk about his experiences with veteran actors since he began working in the industry. Here’s how Davis said it:
Among other actors who have spent time with Tom Cruise Top Gun: Maverick They are Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Glen Powell, Monica Barbaro (who particularly admired the film’s aerial cast), Louis Pullman, Bashir Salahuddin and Manny Jacinto. Joseph Kosinski, who previously worked with Cruz amnesiaFeatured, directed by Ehren Krueger, Eric Warren Singer and Christopher McCurry, the latter of whom has collaborated with Cruz on Mission: Impossible Film series for many years now, all worked on the script. In addition to dissident Lauded by critics, it is still the only release of the 2022 film to have exceeded $1 billion worldwide.
Besides its digital version, Top Gun: Maverick It is still playing in theaters, and releases on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD on November 1. It’s yet to be announced when the sequel will be available to stream through a Paramount+ subscription, but we’ll pass on that information as it arrives.
