Top Gun: Maverick Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm is looking forward to audiences being able to check out Top Gun: Maverick this summer, and teased the film’s visuals in a new interview. Hamm plays Vice Admiral Cyclone in the sequel, which was delayed last summer from its December release date to July 2nd, 2021. The actor spoke with KSDK for a new interview and talked about his experience being able to see it in a theater.

Asked what to expect from the film, Hamm said, “It’s going to leave a lot of people with their minds blown I think. I got the good fortune to see it over the summertime. They opened a theater for us and we all had to sit 15 feet apart and wear masks and everything, but we got to see it on the big screen, which is the right way to see it. It’s really visually stunning. And I think people are going to be moved by the story as well.”

Hamm co-stars in the Joseph Kosinski-directed film with Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer. The film sees Cruise’s Maverick serving as a flight instructor to teach the next generation of Top Guns including Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Teller), the son of his old RIO Nick “Goose” Bradshaw.
