'Top Gun' Sequel Casts Miles Teller as Tom Cruise's Protege

Miles Teller arrives at the Los Angeles premiere of

Miles Teller has landed the role of Goose's son in the upcoming Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, Variety reports.

Miles Teller and Tom Cruise (as Maverick in "Top Gun"). Iceman and Maverick were rivals throughout the film, and their antics led to the death of Maverick's co-pilot Goose. Teller won the part over fellow casting finalists Nicholas Hoult and Glen Powell who all screen tested opposite Cruise last week. Tom Cruise is returning to his role as Maverick three decades later in the Top Gun sequel that is named after his character. Kosinski also worked with Teller on the firefighter film Only the fearless, where Teller starred alongside Josh Brolin, so it makes sense that Teller would be joining his latest production.

Cruise is reuniting with Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski who is set to direct the project from a script by Eric Singer (American Hustle).

Cruise first confirmed the anticipated sequel past year, and last June confirmed the film's title in an interview with Access Hollywood.




Top Gun 2 is said to be set in a world of drone technology and fifth generation fighters along with exploring the end of the era of dogfighting. Do you think he fits the bill as a son of Goose, and do you see this as a natural progression of the story? "Two for symmetry. Okay, the posters are staying", Glen tweeted.

Powell joked about losing the role to Teller on Twitter. Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer and Skydance CEO David Ellison will produce the film.
