Tom Cruise played a big role in having Val Kilmer reprise his role as "Iceman" for Top Gun: Maverick.
The film's producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently spoke to People magazine and revealed that the actor fought to include Val in the sequel.
“[Tom Cruise] said, ‘We have to have Val, we have to have him back. We have to have him in the film,’” Jerry said. “And he was the driving force. We all wanted him, but Tomwas really adamant that if he’s going to make another Top Gun, Val had to be in it.”
