Val Kilmer Maybe, Possibly Will Return as Iceman in the 'Top Gun' Sequel

Chomp, chomp.

Val Kilmer Maybe, Possibly Will Return as Iceman in the 'Top Gun' Sequel
Paramount Pictures

Val Kilmer, now why did you have to go and make a mess of things? 

On Tuesday morning, Facebook was in a frenzy after Val Kilmer, the actor responsible for one of the greatest mouth and teeth moments in movie history, announced he woud be firing up his fighter jets and reprising his role as Iceman. For Top Gun fans, that's huge news. Just as there is no Maverick without Goose, there is no Top Gun without Iceman... Errr, or something like that.

Here's what the actor had to say about his Top Gun 2 involvement in a FB post

"I just got offered ‪#‎topgun2‬ - not often you get to say "yes" without reading the script... "It's starring Gene Hackman..." "Yes" "The director is Francis Coppola..." "Yes!" They aren't involved in this production. These are examples of what an actor says yes to- like Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom Cruise!!! "Yes." We will all miss Tony Scott one of the kindest gentlemen I've ever met in the film biz, but let's fire up some fighter jets again!!!

But wait... You haven't actually said "yes"? What the hell are you doing, man? 

"This is a long way off so calm down. This has been talked about for a long long time and being offered a role is very different from doing a role. I jumped the gun with my post. I jumped the topgun... An innocent mistake. It was just such a wonderful phone call with my agent..."

Oh, right, you're playing with the emotions of all those who anticipated seeing your hot, oiled up bod ready to kick some ass at beach volleyball. Well, not everyone...
