Check Who’s Playing Goose’s Son In ‘Top Gun 2’

When the Top Gun sequel was announced early last month, fans were dying to know if characters like Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, or Maverick’s main squeeze, Charlotte, were coming along for the ride.

While details on the cast are a bit sketchy, The Hollywood Reporter can confirm that there’s a new kid on the block.

Fans, meet Bradley Bradshaw, AKA the son of Maverick’s best buddy and wingman, Goose [above with Cruise].

According to the report, Miles Teller [pictured below with Cruise] is set to star opposite Tom Cruise in the sequel. It will see him playing the protege of Maverick, who went on a guilt-trip in the last movie after Goose was accidentally killed.

Teller apparently beat out fierce competition to get the coveted role:

The role of Goose’s son was a hot one and many of young Hollywood’s finest were chasing it, even traveling to Cruise’s home in Clearwater, Florida, for the testing process.

Whoa, that’s dedication right there. No inkling of any Scientology happenings during the, uh, “testing process” at his digs.

In the end, Teller bagged the role:

Teller beat out Nicholas Hoult and Glen Powell for the role. Dylan O’Brien and Austin Butler were among those in the mix in a previous stage.

Tough luck, fellas. I guess you could call it … a wild goose chase. *Ba dum tss*

For Teller, this is probably a step-up from acting opposite a naked Zac Efron.

Now that he can prove his dramatic chops in Maverick, the sky’s the limit from here on out.
