(Hollywood Reporter) “Jon Hamm, Ed Harris and Lewis Pullman (son of actor Bill Pullman) have joined Top Gun: Maverick, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Details on their roles are being kept a mystery.”
In a super cool and not at all annoying move, this was announced yesterday 9 hours after I blogged the flight school cast. Jon Hamm (Mad Men) is a great addition in my opinion as long as they play to his strengths. He’s actually a damn fine comedic actor in addition to his drama chops, especially in ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’. I’m also a long time Ed Harris guy and can totally see him playing some sort of authority figure in a movie like this. Maybe the new Jester? Or the new Viper? Tough to say. He’s also great at playing a villian (Westworld) so maybe he’s in charge of the drone program which is presumably going to go haywire and force dogfighting to come back. Lewis Pullman is more of an unknown, but he is going to be in the upcoming ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ alongside Jon Hamm as well which looks awesome.
