There's no doubt that Top Gun: Maverick, the long awaited sequel to the classic 1986 flick Top Gun, will be huge. And even though they have just begun filming and there is very little known about the follow-up, anticipation is high!

Filmmakers have only announced two cast members so far...Tom Cruise (duh) returns as the titular Maverick, and Val Kilmer reprises his role as Iceman. We know that Tom Cruise somehow still looks amazing over 30 years later (I'm convinced he is a vampire), but the same can't be same about Val Kilmer. He, like the rest of us mortals, looks 30 years older and has had some recent health issues.

So I wondered how the rest of the original cast is holding up three decades down the proverbial road. You can probably assume that nobody has fared as well as Mr. Scientology. Here they are...then and now (or at least as close to now as I could find).

And in case you need a reminder of the awesomeness, behold the trailer for the original masterpiece (actually, this is for the 25th anniversary re-release, but still)!
