The cast of Top Gun 2, officially titled Top Gun: Maverick, has added Jon Hamm and Ed Harris. But they won’t be alone.
The veteran actors will be accompanied by some new faces, some of whom are new to the game. Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit), Charles Parnell (A Million Little Pieces), Jay Ellis (Insecure), Bashir Salahuddin (GLOW), Danny Ramirez (Assassination Nation), and Monica Barbaro (The Good Cop), are also joining the cast in a variety of roles.

Original Top Gun stars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are returning for Top Gun 2, but now a newcomer is joining the cast.
It’s being reported that Whiplash star Miles Teller has signed on for the sequel, which is officially titled Top Gun: Maverick. But while he wasn’t in the original—in fact, he hadn’t even been born when the original was released—he is playing a character very much tied to the original. Teller will be playing the protege of Cruise’s Maverick, and the son of Maverick’s co-pilot in the original, Goose, who was played by Anthony Edwards.
After many years of rumors and whispers and a lengthy stay in development hell, and 32 years after the original was released, Top Gun 2 has officially begun production.
The news was shared by original star Tom Cruise, who’s set to reprise his role as Maverick in the follow-up, in a tweet sent out last night. More info on the sequel and Cruise’s tweet can be found below.

You know, to keep you entertained and such. So after Liam Neeson did it for three films in the Taken franchise, why not explore that narrative once more. But this time with a bit of a new story and new actors.
