Original Top Gun Star Sues Paramount Over Maverick Using His Likeness Without Permission

Original Top Gun Star Sues Paramount Over Maverick Using His Likeness Without Permission

Barry Tubb, the actor who played Leonard “Wolfman” Wolfe in the original Top Gun, is suing Paramount over using his likeness in 2022’s Top Gun: Maverick. Serving as the belated sequel to the hit 1986 action movie, Top Gun: Maverick saw Tom Cruise return to the role of Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell alongside a younger generation of aviators, including the son of his late friend and wingman Nick “Goose” Bradshaw. Set decades after the events of the first movie, the sequel also featured the return of Val Kilmer as Maverick’s former rival, Tom “Iceman” Kazansky.
