Comeback Kid!

Val Kilmer’s High-Flying Return To ‘Top Gun’

Ailing star smiling after Tom Cruise's Scientology 'cure!'

Val Kilmer’s voice may still be a wreck, but the trouble-plagued actor was beaming while stepping out for lunch with his daughter Mercedes! It was a dramatic comeback even as Paramount Studios announced that the star’s big comeback in a “Top Gun” sequel with Tom Cruise had been pushed back a full year to a Summer 2020 release. The smiling star’s appearance made it clear that any problems weren’t related to the ailing actor’s health — and insiders are even speculating that Val may finally get to make a new movie where his creaking voice won’t be dubbed in by another actor!
