Many are excited for the long-awaited sequel to Top Gun. The first Top Gun was released in 1986. Top Gun 2 is actually titled Top Gun: Maverick and we have finally learned who will be playing Goose’s son, who is now all grown up.
Goose, played in the original by Anthony Edwards, dies in the film. We have learned that actor Miles Teller will play Goose’s son (who goes by Wrigley or Bradley) and star in the film alongside Tom Cruise, who plays the main character Maverick.
